As the seasons start changing, Texas Lotto and Powerball continue to retain momentum in their jackpots. But how long will it last? This is Romulun Harris signing off. Stay safe!

Saturday Night Boomerang

As August begins to fade into September, the summer holidays are over, or will be soon enough. With another summer coming and going, there are a couple of things that won’t fade away on a schedule. Jackpots! Then again, why should they? Jackpots aren’t affected all that much by human affairs, unless of course you consider adding another day their lotteries have drawings.

Nevertheless, the week ended the way it started. August 28, 2021 featured a playback for one lottery and a Pattern three-peat for the other, which only fed into their ever-growing jackpots. As Lotto Texas and Powerball psyched themselves up for September (there’s still one more August drawing to go), their respective jackpots grew to $13.25 million and $332 million.

Will Monday’s drawing solidify a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak in Powerball, and will the jackpots rise into September?

Will Mega Millions bid farewell to August with an ever-increasing jackpot, or will someone claim the prize?

Lotto Texas and Powerball’s Winds of Change

Change, whether we like it or not, is inevitable. For better or worse, change adds variety and keep things from getting stale. One notable change was the addition of Monday nights for Lotto Texas and Powerball. August 25, 2021 had these lotteries even more fired up than they were on Monday. One lottery was so fired up that its Pattern saw an encore! When the dust cleared, the jackpots climbed to $13 million for Lotto Texas and $322 million for Powerball.

Lotto Texas and Powerball haven’t shown any signs of slowing down yet! Will the momentum continue into Saturday night?

Mega Millions Takes a Breather

Previously, on “Lottery Trend”:

  • Lotto Texas and Powerball extended their domain to Mondays, meaning three nights a week of their madness. August 23, 2021 was the first night featuring this change.
  • This shakeup made the addition of another blogger necessary. Romulun Harris will give you the rundown of these lotteries’ Monday night ventures.
  • Currently, Mega Millions still plays only on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Last week was a busy one for Mega Millions! Both drawings saw similar spreads, and how about that playback this past Friday? Exerting all that energy, not to mention all that happened earlier this week, Tuesday night was the perfect opportunity for this lottery to take a breather. The rest proved beneficial, for the jackpot grew to $288 million.

General Lottery Analysis

The August 24, 2021 Mega Millions drawing saw the 135th appearance of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, with winning numbers 17, 18, 26, 52, 67 and MB 19.

Will Mega Millions continue to take a break Friday night or be back on its feet?

The Grand Combination Foundation

Numbers are the first thing many of us think of when we see or hear the word “lottery”, but the combination is the true backbone. While numbers get all the attention, they’re being propped up by combinations. When you dig deeper, there are certain arrangements, combinations if you will, that like to show up in every drawing. To make our analysis even more exciting, some of these combinations will repeat, multiple times in fact.

August 21, 2021 honored the combination. Lotto Texas and Powerball saw outstanding showings of repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations, respectively. Furthermore, the jackpots rose to $12 million in Lotto Texas and $293 million in Powerball.

As the Combinations continue to work behind the scenes, will the jackpots continue to rise?

Bouncy, Energetic Mega Millions

The events that took place August 20, 2021 can be described with one word: “whirlwind”. Mega Millions didn’t know what to do with itself. A playback made an appearance, but that wasn’t enough. No, Mega Millions got greedy. It just had to go crazy with the repeating Three-Number Combinations, and would you believe that there was another similar spread? Bouncing and darting through the lottery smorgasbord propelled the jackpot to $270 million.

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 41, 43, 51, 57, 70 and MB 1, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 192nd appearance.

All three were last seen August 10, 2021.

Similar Spread

Friday night’s spread was 02:08:06:13. The spread for March 4, 2020 had a similar appearance. That night, 2, 8, 16, 18, 31 and MB 14 were the winning numbers, and the spread was 06:08:02:13. The same difference between numbers but of course, the orders of said numbers that played were different.

Three-Number Combinations

Mega Millions darn lost its mind after grabbing five repeating Three-Number Combinations!

  • 41, 43, 57 (Debuted November 29, 2013)
  • 43, 51, 57 (Debuted January 5, 2021)
  • 51, 57, MB 1 (Debuted March 7, 2014)
  • 51, 57, 70 (Debuted March 31, 2020)
  • 41, 51, 57 (Debuted November 8, 2013)
All done without the help of a repeating Four-Number Combination! Source: lotterytrend-megamillions.com.

Will that energy carry over into Mega Millions next week, or will this lottery take a more “sophisticated” approach?

Play That Back Again

Repetition has many uses. Watching a movie for the 101st time, for example, lets us see what we may have missed the first 100 times (though it’s really due to familiarity and/or nostalgia). For lotteries, repetition can be from either a Pattern repeat, a Pattern streak, or a playback. The result may not be predictable, but there’s a sense of familiarity when a Pattern plays consecutively, or even when everything played together on the same date.

Although neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball saw Pattern encores, there was a playback. August 18, 2021 was a boon for both jackpots, though. The jackpot for Lotto Texas continued to hang on, stopping at $11.75 million, and Powerball settled at $290 million.

Mega Millions Spreads Out

Some spreads are nicer than others. Bedspreads add a layer of finesse to freshly made beds. Jellies and jams can help mask the toast that got burnt (again). Mega Millions has no need for beds or strawberry jam, but it does like spreads. All while this lottery engages in its love-hate relationship with the players, a similar spread does pop up once in a while. August 17, 2021 was one of those “once in a while” occasions. That and a playback cut short pushed the jackpot to $256 million.

General Lottery Analysis

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 301st appearance with winning numbers 3, 6, 16, 38, 56 and MB 24.

The differences between the numbers played on both nights were the same but remember, their orders were different.
