Números Calientes (Hot Numbers)

If August 14th, 2019 was anything to go by, it may be a while yet before either Lotto Texas or Powerball cool down! Wednesday night saw them join forces and keep their respective prizes away from all who sought them. Lotto Texas continued its adventure in madness as the prize rose to $16 million. Powerball kept it classy (for now) as its prize rose to $149 million.

As summer vacation winds down, will Lotto Texas and Powerball follow suit, or will they continue to crank up the heat?

A Lesson from Mega Millions

School is back in session, and Mega Millions players got schooled. There was no {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore in the August 13th, 2019 drawing. Playback? Australia Play? No; both were absent. The lesson Tuesday night was “Don’t make assumptions!” If none of those awesome plays showed up, what did propel the grand prize to $70 million?

Will there be a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore Friday night, or will Mega Millions have a different lesson plan?

The Playback Blowtorch

It was a scorcher Wednesday night, and we don’t just mean a heat wave! August 7th, 2019 was the night both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw a playback. Additionally, one of these lotteries was also neck-deep in encores. The intensity of this blowtorch kept players away from the grand prizes. These rose to $15.25 million for Lotto Texas and $128 million for Powerball.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 1, 3, 16, 22, 31, and 35, the {3-3} Pattern made its 136th appearance.

This Pattern has played in 8.10% of the 1679 Lotto Texas drawings.

Now with 43 appearances, the 3 3 0 Specific Order has played in 31.6% of the 136 drawings where {3-3} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1679 drawings are taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 2.56% of the time.

Would you believe that both the {3-3} Pattern and the 3 3 0 Specific Order came back for an encore? They were last seen together August 3rd, 2019. How often do you see an encore double as a playback?

Similar Spread

Lotto Texas, normally the “quiet one”, has had an interesting summer. Just one week ago, we saw a similar spread. Wednesday night gave us another one; the spread was 02:13:06:09:04. This time around, its spread was similar to the one seen November 19th, 2016. The spread for that night was 04:02:13:06:09 and the winning numbers were 15, 19, 21, 34, 40, and 49. Remember: although the differences between numbers are the same in both these drawings, the orders are different.

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were more shenanigans to be had when repeating Four-Number Combination 1, 3, 16, and 35 showed up!

Three-Number Combination(s)

Believe it or not, Powerball kept it classy with two repeating Three-Number Combinations:

Two was plenty. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

August is the hottest month of the year and Lotto Texas and Powerball have taken it to heart! Could there be more playback madness Saturday night, or will things cool down?

The $60 Million Pattern

The title you have just read may be misleading. No one was able to claim the grand prize in the August 6th, 2019 Mega Millions drawing. This, in turn, caused the prize to rise to the titular amount. All of this was thanks to the wonders of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern.

General Lottery Analysis

This Pattern, fresh from its appearance this past Friday, had another go! The 216th appearance was marked by 11, 17, 31, 43, 55, and MB 16.

Is a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat in the forecast for Friday night?

For Want of an Encore

A new month means more opportunities to win the lottery. Of course, this also means more lottery shenanigans! August is one of those hot, and strangely, “boring” months. Sure, there’s the whole back-to-school thing, but Lottery Trend Country (the US of A) doesn’t have any holidays. Nothing on the federal level, at least.

Mega Millions took the hint and there was no {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore August 2nd, 2019. Instead, a safe, common approach was taken. The aftermath was the players’ efforts to win the grand prize thwarted once again. For everyone keeping track, the prize rose to $55 million.

It’s too early to say what August will really have in store for Mega Millions. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern is fond of encores! Could one be in the cards Tuesday night?

Spreading at the End of the Month

July is over. It’s still too hot to do much of anything except swim (or bake) and there’s only two weeks* until school starts. Time keeps on slippin’, as they say!

*Length of time may be different, depending on where you are.

Now, July 31st, 2019 didn’t rock the boat too much. Save for a similar spread, it was a quiet night. Neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball saw a grand prize winner, and their jackpots rose to $14.5 million and $102 million, respectively.

Lotto Texas

The spread for Wednesday night was 04:10:02:05:03. This was similar to the one seen March 25th, 2015. That night, the winning numbers were 1, 6, 8, 11, 15, and 25 and the spread was 05:02:03:04:10. Note that although the differences between numbers were the same in both drawings, the orders were different.

Taking Nothing for Granite

There was more to the July 23rd, 2019 drawing than someone becoming $168 million richer. For the first time, New Hampshire saw a Mega Millions winner! Would you believe that it was the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern that reset the jackpot to $40 million?

As we begin to wrap up July, will the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern keep a hold on Mega Millions Friday night?

Saturday Night Playback Special

This weekend was about celebrating a milestone in human achievement and looking forward to what the future may bring. Lotteries, you see, can’t hold countdowns, throw commemorative parties, or reminisce. Instead, they engage in playbacks.

Mega Millions got bit by the playback bug this past Friday. That bug bit at least one other lottery July 20th, 2019. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their respective jackpots swell to $12.75 million and $63 million. Question is, which lottery got bit?

Lotto Texas

Hopping Back to {2-1-1-1-1}

After an unexpected Australia Play encore, Mega Millions shook things up again Tuesday night. We watched as the lottery hopped back into the arms of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern in the July 16th, 2019 drawing. That move brought the jackpot up to $154 million.

Too Many Encores? No Such Thing!

July 13th, 2019 can be described as such: “Encores! Encores everywhere!”

The Pattern streak in Lotto Texas held strong Saturday night and that played a hand in no one winning the jackpot. The prize there rose to a respectable $11.75 million.

Saturday night belonged to Powerball. Not only was there a Pattern three-peat, but one player in Tennessee became $198 million richer! As such, the prize got knocked back down to $40 million.
