Although the coronavirus has put normal life on hold, Megamillions continues giving out surprises. Freyja Harris will return tomorrow to give you the latest updates. This is guest blogger Romulun Harris signing off. Happy Fourth of July!

June is Pattern Streak Season

Lotto Texas has grown so much! Once a quiet, unassuming little lottery, it’s not only more confident, it has a large jackpot. This jackpot has grown over the course of several months, and thanks to the {3-2-1} Pattern streak, it received another boost! With no one able to pick all six winning numbers, the jackpot climbed to $23.5 million.

Powerball didn’t have a {3-1-1-1} Pattern encore to end its June run. Playing another Pattern sent the jackpot to $51 million.

Both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their most commonly seen Patterns at the end of their June run. Will the {3-2-1} and the {2-1-1-1-1} Patterns kick off July?

The Heat of a Three-peat

It’s hot outside and it’s hot in Mega Millions! June is almost over, and this lottery continued to hold onto the {3-2-1} Pattern. The Pattern’s three-peat made things unbearably hot for the players, with no one able to claim the grand prize. Naturally, the jackpot went up; $53 million is now up for grabs.

General Lottery Analysis

The {3-2-1} Pattern of June 26, 2020 was thanks to 19, 33, 37, 56, 57 and MB 6. This Pattern has now played 251 times.

Will Mega Millions hold onto the {3-2-1} Pattern in Tuesday’s drawing?

Forty-Four Million Step Encore Program

Forty-four million steps. That’s roughly 3.67 million people going through a Twelve-Step program all at once. If there are 806 kilometers in one million steps of average stride, then 44 million steps would be 35,464 kilometers. Today’s post is about a different kind of 44 million.

After the June 23, 2020 Mega Millions drawing, $44 million is the prize now up for grabs. And it was brought about by a Pattern encore.

General Lottery Analysis

Fresh from June 19, 2020, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 250th appearance! The winning numbers were 6, 20, 37, 40, 48 and MB 15.

Is the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern setting itself up for a Pattern streak to end June? Maybe, but it needs to see a three-peat on Friday first!

Sticking with What Mega Millions Knows

Mega Millions learned a Very Important Lesson ™ in being itself June 19, 2020. Rather than borrow from Lotto Texas, it decided to stick with what it knew. Instead of a {3-2-1} Pattern three-peat, this lottery returned to its most commonly seen Pattern: {2-1-1-1-1}. And it wasn’t just the appearance of a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern that sent the jackpot to $35 million!

With winning numbers 11, 34, 36, 52, 66 and MB 7, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 249th appearance.

Three-Number Combinations

Everyone knows, or should know, that a repeating Four-Number Combination never acts alone. Four repeating Three-Number Combinations made up the entourage. In fact, one Combination played twice before!

With Mega Millions returning to its roots, so to speak, will it stick with the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern for the rest of the month?

The Fight for Dominance

Today’s title isn’t something you’d expect for a Lottery Binge post. But you see, things haven’t been exactly “normal” in the lottery world these past few weeks. We had a lottery that’s known for its respectability (rhymes with “Potto Lexus”) become the one with the largest jackpot. In fact, this past Saturday saw its jackpot rise (again!) to $21.25 million. Powerball, determined to not have its jackpot won so easily, pulled itself back up. With no one able to pick all six numbers, the jackpot rose to $22 million.

Lotto Texas

  • 2, 50, PB 5 (Debuted February 10, 2016)

With Powerball on top, it appears that the “rightful” order has been restored. As we head into another week of lottery madness, will Powerball get past $22 million this time? Will the Lotto Texas jackpot keep climbing?

The Twisted Jackpot Tale

For the longest time, Lotto Texas was the “respectable” lottery. While Mega Millions and Powerball flirted with monstrously large jackpots from time to time, Lotto Texas never dared to go that high.

Sometime over the past few months, it developed an attitude shift. We’re not sure when this change in personality occurred, but June 6, 2020 was another night that the Lotto Texas jackpot resisted a takedown. As a result, it climbed to $20.75 million.

Powerball’s reset point isn’t as high as it once was. Whether that caused a boost in Lotto Texas’s confidence remains to be seen. Regardless, a prize that bumped up to $22 million is plenty to start that (early) retirement nest egg!

Saturday night’s results may be the opening for an active week. We’ll need to keep an eye out for a potential {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat in Powerball. We’ll also know if Lotto Texas can continue on its jackpot high or if it will be brought down to size.

The Devilishly Delicious Delirium of a Double Encore

There are no words to describe what happened the night of June 3, 2020. Powerball’s jackpot was brought down to size by a lone winner from West Virginia. This, along with encores from both Lotto Texas’s Pattern and Specific Order, caused a disturbance the likes of which had never been seen before. Because the Lotto Texas jackpot rose to $19.5 million and the Powerball jackpot reset to $20 million, there is now only a $500,000 difference between them!

Even after what happened this past Wednesday night, it isn’t likely that Lotto Texas’s jackpot will surpass Powerball’s. Getting back to the present, it appears that both lotteries played their most commonly seen Patterns. Will Saturday night produce encores for either the {3-2-1} Pattern or the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern?

For the 19th, an Encore

The school year is winding down and Memorial Day Weekend is right around the corner! What better way for Mega Millions to get psyched about summer than to push out a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore? The May 19, 2020 drawing also saw another boost in the jackpot; it stopped just shy of $300 million ($298 million).

One Goes Up, One Goes Away

Remember how it looked like the {2-2-1-1} Pattern was gearing up for a Pattern streak? That got quashed in the May 15, 2020 Mega Millions drawing. However, if you like jackpots that are worth more than a quarter billion dollars (who doesn’t?), then you’ll be happy to know that it stayed that way! With no grand prize winners, the jackpot climbed to $274 million.
