A Reset Deferred

It’s been exactly one week since the Powerball jackpot was won. Since that time, Powerball continues to pick up the pieces, and Lotto Texas remains on top. The prize in that lottery is now worth $45.5 million. The natural order hasn’t been restored in Powerball’s mind. No way that Lotto Texas stayed on top! What’s a “disgraced” lottery to do?

A {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat was part of Powerball’s arsenal, though that wasn’t enough to soothe the fevered desire to be back on top. Even with a volley of repeating Three-Number Combinations, the jackpot rose just a bit, from $22 million to $25 million. Patience, dear Powerball. Patience.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The gulf between the Lotto Texas and Powerball jackpots was as expansive as the Outback. With winning numbers 10, 11, 22, 32, 45 and 54, the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order gave the jackpot a leap forward. An Australia Play has occurred 244 times.

Will Powerball’s wish for Lotto Texas to be knocked from the top come true Saturday night, or will the lottery from down south hold strong?

At the Top and Twice as Much

Lotto Texas was in a world of its own. Powerball was forced to reset, and Lotto Texas was now on top. And, after what happened September 19, 2020, it extended its stay until at least the next drawing. The players failed once more to match all six numbers. Rather than go all out, a sliver of that old-time Lotto Texas respectability shone through. The jackpot rose to “just” $44 million.

Powerball began the task of rebuilding its clout. Things got off to a nice start, for players there failed to match all the numbers as well. In fact, $22 million isn’t a bad prize. Although, it was a reminder to Powerball that Lotto Texas had a jackpot now worth twice as much. A bitter pill to swallow for a lottery notorious for monster-sized jackpots, to be sure.

Neither Mega Millions nor Powerball are strangers to being the ones on top, but for Lotto Texas, it’s a wondrous, yet terrifying experience. Staying on top can either be long-lasting, or short-lived. And, Lotto Texas hasn’t forgotten that when the time comes for its reset, the climb back to the top will be much harder and much longer. Will it be able to hold off the reset for at least another drawing?

Mega Millions Rebuilds

So began another cycle of build->win->rebuild! That is:

  • Build – build up the jackpot
  • Win – at least one player picks the six winning numbers
  • Rebuild – starting over; Mega Millions (and Powerball) start at $20 million

After being dealt a blow to the jackpot (and ego), Mega Millions focused on building up again. Fortune favored Mega Millions, for no one picked the six winning numbers. Imagine the uproar, the scandal, of being knocked down twice in a row! A jackpot whose worth jumped to $22 million is as good a start as any.

Will Mega Millions continue to rebuild Tuesday night, or will it have to start over yet again?

The Uppity Lottery

Mega Millions lost some of its clout this past Tuesday night, and one lottery endured the same fate. Lotto Texas, known for being meek and respectable, became more confident as 2020 rolled on. Some would say that the lil ol’ lottery from down South got uppity. Well, if you were expecting the return of respectable Lotto Texas…it did not return. On September 16, 2020, that “uppity” lottery had its jackpot rise to $42.75 million!

What happened to Powerball? Well, Powerball got knocked in the head by an Empire (State) apple and when it woke up, had only $20 million remaining. At least Mega Millions gained a grumbling partner.

Three-Number Combinations

Powerball’s bruised ego didn’t allow for repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Lotto Texas reigns supreme but deep down, it knows this moment won’t last forever. Mega Millions and Powerball will relish the day when the “uppity” lottery is put back in its place. Will Saturday night give Lotto Texas more time at the top?

Megamillions Still Got It

Salutations, Lotterytrend fans! This is guest blogger Romulun Harris, filling in for Freyja Harris, and giving you the latest updates in Megamillions. Last night was the 19th anniversary of that unexpected and devastating September 11 attack. But Megamillions brought out its secret weapons of defense in the form of a frequently played pattern and combination repeats.

And although the Labor Day holiday along with kids returning to school may have caused the infamous COVID-19 to once again gain momentum, Megamillions has also gained momentum as it continues to stay above the $100 million border by climbing up to $119 million.

Six Hundred Cheers for Mega Millions

The 600th Mega Millions drawing was held September 8, 2020. Six hundred drawings chock full of encores, Pattern streaks, and jackpots that reached the stratosphere. Here’s to 600 more drawings!

Now that we’ve gotten the obligatory congratulations out of the way, it’s time to catch up with the current king of the lottery hill. Perhaps in the spirit of the day after Labor Day being the traditional first day of school, Mega Millions didn’t go for a bombastic celebration. As it put on classy airs, its jackpot crossed the $100 million threshold. More specifically, it climbed to $108 million.

The Greatest Flattery

In a chaotic world that appears to be growing ever more chaotic, humans evolved a little something they like to call “escapism”. Something to make them forget about the pain, suffering, and needless tedium in their lives. Let’s delve into a little bit of that escapism and look at the continuing strife between Lotto Texas and Powerball. In the case of the former, nothing else mattered in its quest to remain in the good graces of lottery high society.

The night of August 29, 2020 saw these lotteries imitate one another. Not only did they both play their most commonly seen Patterns, these were encores! Lotto Texas was rewarded with a jackpot that rose to $36.75 million, and Powerball rose to $56 million.

Still, the question remains: Who imitated whom?

The {3-2-1} Pattern encore was made possible with winning numbers 7, 18, 22, 33, 35 and 39. This Pattern has now played 950 times.

With 1790 Lotto Texas drawings having taken place, this Pattern has played 53.1% of the time. Recall that the {3-2-1} Pattern was seen August 26, 2020.

Now with 159 appearances, the 2 3 1 Specific Order has played in 16.8% of the 950 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also played in 8.88% of the 1790 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, the 2 3 1 Specific Order played August 1, 2020.

As it is in the human world, it’s difficult to attain clout. What took months to achieve a dream for Lotto Texas can easily be undone in the next drawing. And Powerball, though it always had a “higher” starting position, isn’t immune, either. Will both lotteries continue their climb at the start of September, or will at least one of them fall?

Hurricane Laura made landfall on the Gulf Coast of the United States early this morning, leaving a path of devastation. Although Lottery Trend headquarters dodged a bullet, our neighbors to the east did not. Please keep those affected by Laura in your thoughts and, if you can, donate.

Lotto Texas is loving the clout, the high life, even, and it wasn’t going to give that up easily. Playing safe with a {3-2-1} Pattern encore reaped big rewards! The jackpot rose to $36 million, and Lotto Texas got to extend its stay in the club.

Powerball, meanwhile, quietly rose to $47 million. It could rest easy knowing an $11 million gap existed between it and Lotto Texas.

Lotto Texas remains in the good graces of lottery high society, but for how long?

Price Tag: $57 Million

Nothing like a weekend road trip to get away for a bit! Oh sure, there’s that whole pandemic thing going around, but this is also a camping trip, and there’s just no way you’ll run into anyone else, right? And you left on a Friday, but you left just before the traffic picked up. One great thing about road trips is that you can stop over at greasy spoons or snap pictures of landmarks. Try doing that from an airplane! Oh, and it’s cheaper than flying, too.

Mega Millions managed to escape the crowd, but it wasn’t easy. Teasing players with the idea of a playback (Spoiler: there wasn’t one, though it was close) and throwing in a repeating Three-Number Combination kept players at bay. All that to the tune of a jackpot hike to $57 million.

“Spreading the Jackpot Madness” or “The Inner Workings of Lottery Society”

The lottery world has always been a strange place. Numbers are the dominant species, and clout is in the form of jackpot size. The larger your jackpot, the higher your status.

In this strange world, Lotto Texas has gained clout, and is determined to hold on to it. With the help of a rarely seen Pattern and a similar spread, this lottery cemented itself in high society. The jackpot climbed to $34.25 million.

Powerball’s jackpot rises and falls, like jackpots are wont to do. However, it could reassure itself that it was of a “better” stock than that Lotto Texas! Well, Powerball was able to continue its climb upward. With no grand prize winner, the jackpot there ascended to $29 million.

Differences between the numbers that played were the same, yet the orders in which they played on those nights were different. Now, some lotteries may gripe, saying this was a case of try-hard, but a similar spread was a touch of class. Who classier than Lotto Texas?

Four-Number Combinations

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball decided to go in the opposite direction and play a commonly seen Pattern, its most common Pattern, to be precise. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 194th appearance with 13, 23, 47, 55, 58 and PB 23.

The [1-1-1-2-1] General Order, now with 39 appearances, has played in 20.1% of the 194 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 509 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 7.66% of the time. We last saw the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order June 27, 2020.

Now with eight appearances, the 1 1 0 2 1 1 Specific Order has played in 20.5% of the 39 drawings where the General Order was [1-1-1-2-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 4.12% of the 194 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.57% of all 509 drawings.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Repeating Three-Number Combination 47, 55 and 58 debuted December 1, 2018.

While it is nice to be at the top, it would do Lotto Texas good to remember that the bigger they come, the harder they fall. It doesn’t take much effort for Powerball to rise to the $30 million+ range. Will Lotto Texas continue its time in the lottery high society, or will it feel the sting of a captured jackpot and the painful crash?
