How Jackpots Stay Warm

One good thing about January is that the days start to get longer. Thing is, that’s when winter really begins; the Christmas season is usually an appetizer. The snowplows and shovels get a workout, kids (and adults) pray for a snow day, and those in warmer climates hope, sometimes in vain, that they get to try on their winter wardrobe at least once this season. Those who hate the cold would rather hibernate, or at least stay inside where it’s warm. Better yet, they’d travel to the Southern Hemisphere if they could. After all, it is summer down there. Maybe with a little help from Lotto Texas and Powerball, the escape to a warm, far away place will come to pass.

Lotto Texas and Powerball crushed those dreams this past Wednesday night. In fact, Lotto Texas, saw fit to go Down Under alone. That had the effect of keeping the jackpot kicking and hopping up to $6.25 million. Powerball saw to it that its jackpot would be better off rising to a toasty $48 million than exposed to the cold.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Lotto Texas felt January 12, 2022, was a good night for an Australia Play. With winning numbers 7, 12, 19, 33, 39 and 40, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 267th appearance.

An Australia Play has been featured in 13.7% of the 1954 Lotto Texas drawings and was last seen December 29, 2021.

Similar Spread

Wednesday night’s Australia Play was no mere Australia Play! The numbers had a spread of 05:07:14: 06:01. If we look at the winning numbers of May 18, 2016, 20, 26, 40, 47, 48 and 53, they had a spread that night of 06:14:07:01:05. Remember that even though the differences between numbers were the same on both nights, their orders (and the numbers played) were different.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Of course, Lotto Texas went above and beyond with a trio of repeating Four-Number Combinations:

  • 7, 19, 33, 40 (Debuted March 10, 2001)
  • 12, 19, 33, 40 (Debuted April 10, 2010)

Holiday Couplings: Lottery Style

Humans are social creatures by nature. All of us at some time or another desire companionship and a genuine connection with others. Some people have strong family units, others have a strong social network, and others still have either both or none of the above. Through the power of marketing and how many Christmas traditions came about, there’s an even stronger desire for most of us to have companionship at this time of year. Sometimes, that desire manifests as coupling up. Christmas stories wouldn’t be a thing otherwise!

Lotteries don’t concern themselves with romance, naturally. However, they are known to grow attached to different Patterns during their lives…

December 15, 2021 meant Lotto Texas and the {3-2-1} Pattern sticking together another night. This union led to the jackpot sitting pretty at $13 million. A Pattern streak with {2-1-1-1-1} looked to be in the making for Powerball, but that wasn’t meant to be. Upon further analysis, it was discovered that such a streak wasn’t necessary to raise the prize to $353 million.

This Time with More Pep

Last week was a wild one for Mega Millions. From having four repeating Three-Number Combinations to having a similar spread, one wouldn’t blame this lottery for taking it easy. In fact, this past Tuesday was the first time in a while where there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations. Friday night was more active but still a long way from what we saw last week. That didn’t stop the jackpot from rising to $148 million, though!

The {2-2-1-1} Spread-Out

This past Friday night meant not only the start of another weekend, but it also meant Mega Millions’ long-awaited foray into December. The {2-2-1-1} Pattern stuck around for another drawing, and the love for similar spreads is, well, spreading! All these elements came together to push the jackpot to $122 million.

General Lottery Analysis

A {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore was featured December 3, 2021. With winning numbers 22, 45, 48, 58, 61 and MB 13, this Pattern has now played 204 times.

The Holiday Pattern Shift

The shift into Christmas doesn’t just mean a shift in holidays; a change of seasons is also afoot. In our neck of the woods, fall is falling by the wayside and winter is starting to make a stake, even if it doesn’t necessarily feel like winter outside. Just as Mother Nature does what she wants, lotteries also have a way of doing things.

Mega Millions decided to shake things up Tuesday night. Instead of continuing the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak, November 30, 2021 saw another Pattern go up to bat. This sent the jackpot up to $112 million.

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 7, 8, 26, 30, 39 and MB 17, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 203rd appearance.

A quartet of repeating Three-Number Combinations hit the scene:

Funny enough, the winning numbers for May 11, 2021 were 7, 8, 20, 36, 39 and MB 22. It was almost as if for Tuesday night, the last two digits were switched on the middle two numbers. That is, instead of 20 and 36, we saw 26 and 30.

Will the {2-1-2-1} Pattern return Friday night?

Having Monday on Saturday

Rather than bring back the {4-1-1} Pattern or the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, Lotto Texas and Powerball decided to go another route Saturday night. November 20, 2021 saw a playback in Lotto Texas, and although Powerball appeared to have the makings of a playback, it fell just short. This led to a boon of repeating Combinations (mostly the Three-Number kind) and rising jackpots. Lotto Texas stepped up to $10.25 million, and Powerball’s jackpot soared to $213 million.
