A Spread Here and a Debut There

Lotto Texas and Powerball took things down a notch Saturday night. For starters, the former didn’t see an Australia Play return, and the latter didn’t go as crazy on the repeating Three-Number Combinations as it did last time. Nevertheless, the momentum of rising jackpots was still present. Lotto Texas, with an assist from a not-so-common Pattern, pushed the jackpot to $6.5 million. Powerball also went with the root of playing an uncommonly seen Pattern and sent its jackpot to $65 million.

Similar Spread

Before we get to the repeating Four-Number Combinations (mild spoiler: there was one), we need to talk about the similar spread. Saturday night’s numbers had a spread of 01:05:04:01:05. This was similar to what was seen back on May 4, 2002. Then, the winning numbers were 4, 5, 10, 11, 16 and 20, and their spread was 01:05:01:05:04. Even though the differences between the numbers played were the same, note that the order in which they played is different.

Will either of these uncommonly played Patterns show up again in Monday night’s drawing?
