27 Days Later

This post could have been called “The Ides of March”, except March 15th was two weeks ago. Instead, we paid homage to a horror film series. Sort of.

Thankfully, there were no zombie hordes running around and society didn’t collapse, though the aftermath of March 27, 2021 was nothing short of awesome. This awesome, of course, was more along the lines of inspiring admiration or fear (the original definition, in fact).

What triggered such an emotion, you ask? For starters, Lotto Texas saw a playback, and a jackpot that rose to $8.25 million. Powerball nearly saw a playback, but something else, something of greater magnitude, occurred. Two somethings. The first something was the $238 million Powerball jackpot being won by a sole player from Florida. Naturally, the jackpot reset itself to $20 million. The other something was a repeat Four-Number Combination!

Lotto Texas

Both the {4-1-1} Pattern and the 1 1 4 Specific Order were last seen March 17, 2021. Talk about lucky!

Four-Number Combinations

A trio of repeating Four-Number Combinations made an appearance. In fact, one of these Combinations debuted in the earlier-mentioned March 17th drawing!

Prior to Saturday night, both the {2-2-1-1} Pattern and the [2-2-1-1] General Order played March 24, 2021. Not only was this a near-playback, but this was also a double encore!

This Specific Order has also played in 1.85% of the 162 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.52% of all 572 drawings. The 2 0 2 0 1 1 Specific Order was last seen in the July 8, 2020 drawing.

Four-Number Combination

The repeating Four-Number Combination (that wasn’t a typo) was 6, 38, 39 and PB 6.

This Combination debuted December 23, 2020.

Three-Number Combinations  

Having popped the hood of a repeating Four-Number Combination, four repeating Three-Number Combinations were found deep inside:

  • 38, 39, PB 6
  • 6, 39, PB 6
  • 6, 38, PB 6
  • 6, 38, 39

All the combinations above debuted in the earlier-mentioned December 23rd drawing.

Powerball got hooked on repeating Three-Number Combinations, as there was room for one more! Repeating Three-Number Combination 14, 39, and 65 debuted January 16, 2021.

Will March end on a note like this, or will a quieter night await us on Wednesday?
