Monstrous and Mischievous Jackpots

The “January lull”, for the most part, didn’t exist for Lotto Texas and Powerball this year. A month that saw a repeating Five-Number Combination and a similar spread saw more madness Saturday night with a Pattern three-peat. Not only was there a three-peat to contend with, a not-so-common Pattern wanted in on the action and one lottery’s (*cough*Powerball’s*cough*) monstrous jackpot grew ever larger to $394 million. Lotto Texas, normally the “classy” one, kept up its mischievous streak with a prize that grew to $5.75 million.

Three-Number Combination(s)

A towering jackpot was all Powerball needed to make its presence known.

Powerball goes forward with a monster jackpot and a potential Pattern streak. Will either of these hold going into Wednesday night?

Encore and Hops

Today’s title means one of two things. Either Lottery Binge has decided to venture into the world of craft beer brewing (and should quit before even getting started) or there was an Australia Play and a Pattern encore. We’re going to go with the latter.

This past Wednesday night was also good for fans of repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations. As busy as the night was, there were no grand prize winners in either lottery. Lotto Texas’s jackpot climbed to $5.5 million while Powerball waltzed into $373 million.

Will a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat in Powerball send its jackpot to $400 million or close to it? Could Lotto Texas see an Australia Play encore?

Spreading Lottery-Brand Madness

We’ve all been told (or should have been told) to never judge a book by its cover. That piece of advice must always be considered when performing lottery analysis. On the surface, both Lotto Texas and Powerball’s six numbers are unassuming. After all, they’re just numbers.

Well, this past Saturday saw a monstrous jackpot grow even larger, a Pattern encore, and a similar spread. The jackpot climbed to $5.25 million in Lotto Texas and $343 million in Powerball. Just numbers, indeed!

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The January 18th, 2020 Lotto Texas drawing saw an encore for the {4-1-1} Pattern! This Pattern made its 189th appearance with winning numbers 17, 20, 27, 33, 35, and 45.

On June 18th, 2011, the winning numbers were 22, 29, 35, 37, 40, and 50, and the spread was 07:06:02:03:10. When you see a similar spread remember this sage advice: The differences between drawn numbers are the same, but their orders are different.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

Going into next week, we’ll need to keep an eye out for Powerball. That beast of a jackpot will get toppled sometime, but will it be Wednesday night, and with a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore? Meanwhile, the {4-1-1} Pattern isn’t known to make three-peats in Lotto Texas, but nothing seems too out of the ordinary for these lotteries!  

Reduced-Strength Encore and a Combination Triple Offense

The weekend is a cherished time. It’s meant to be the two-day reprieve from the grinds of work and school. It’s a time to catch up, a time to hang out, and a time to rest.

Lotto Texas most certainly took the “rest” part to heart. There was indeed a {4-2} Pattern encore, but this appearance wasn’t nearly as explosive. An over-the-top play wasn’t needed to send the jackpot to $17.5 million.

Powerball kept it classy. However, underneath that class was a monster of a jackpot that underwent another growth spurt. The prize climbed to $296 million.

Lotto Texas

The {4-2} Pattern encore of January 11th, 2020 was brought to you by 5, 13, 20, 25, 27, and 31. This Combination has now played 191 times.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There was just a single repeating Three-Number Combination, one that played twice before:

Two questions weigh on our minds as we head into Wednesday: Will the {4-2} Pattern be bold enough to go for a three-peat in Lotto Texas? Will the prizes in both Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to grow, or will they be reset?

It’s a Lottery Kind of Christmas

Christmas 2019 was a doubleheader lottery-wise! Lotto Texas and Powerball may not have the power to bring Peace on Earth and Goodwill To Men ™, but they had the power to bring merriment and hope. Winning millions of dollars would make an excellent gift at anytime of the year. But, as is the paradoxical nature of lotteries, Lotto Texas and Powerball brought great joy…and great sorrow. With no grand prizes claimed in either lottery, their respective jackpots rose to $14.75 million and $200 million.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

In our last post, we were wondering if a {3-2-1} Pattern three-peat would be in the cards. Lotto Texas decided to offer the {4-1-1} Pattern instead, with winning numbers 8, 15, 16, 17, 25, and 49. This Pattern has now played 186 times.

Pattern Encores for Solstice

This past Saturday marked the Winter Solstice in our part of the world. Not cold enough for a parka (very rarely does it ever get that cold in Houston) but cold enough for a jacket, hot cocoa, and of course, playing the lottery!

Lotto Texas and Powerball had the honor of showing up for Solstice this year. They must have read each other’s minds because both of them saw encores for their most common Patterns! That, and said encores boosted their respective lottery’s jackpot to $14.25 million and $183 million.

45 Million Kinds of Chill

No place like home for the holidays! The kids are out, college students are heading home, and workers are looking for ways to burn off that remaining PTO. This past Friday night had all sorts of entertainment options available, be it new movies, checking out Christmas light displays, or braving the mall crowds.

If you weren’t into those things (or even if you were), you probably grabbed a Mega Millions ticket or two. Sure, you wouldn’t have become monstrously wealthy, but $40 million isn’t small change! Hope you’re ready to try again Christmas Eve. After Friday night, the prize climbed to $45 million, and no big plays were needed.

While (some of) you were tempting fate, Lotto Texas and Powerball prepared by boosting their jackpots to $13.5 million and $171 million, respectively. This past Wednesday was almost exactly like December 11th, save for the numbers that played of course. One of these lotteries saw a playback, while the other came close. Which one saw what?

To think that Lotto Texas and Powerball will have the honor of playing Christmas Day! Both lotteries saw their most common Patterns: {3-2-1} and {2-1-1-1-1}, respectively. Will either of these Patterns try to form a streak for Christmas?

Snowballing into Millions

When braving the crowds of Christmas shoppers, you need to keep your wits about you and stand strong. When you want to create larger jackpots, you throw snowballs at the players. By “snowballs”, we mean repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations.

Lotto Texas and Powerball were full of energy, and pummeled players with those earlier-mentioned snowballs. Powerball had so much energy that it piled on a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat! That was enough to send the prize to $150 million. Lotto Texas saw nothing in terms of Pattern encores, but its jackpot soared to $12.25 million.
