Mega Millions’ Right to a Near Playback

The human world is a messy place. Things aren’t always what they seem, and nothing can ever be taken for granted. Although lotteries have their fancies and like to play tricks on players from time to time, they have no pretenses. In the lottery world, indeed the number world, what you see is what you get. Numbers don’t lie. There is a method to their madness, and Mega Millions’ madness was on display June 24, 2022.

No {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore was in the cards, and an Australia Play? Forget about it! However, in a prime display of “Almost doesn’t count”, we were graced with the presence of a “near” playback. Of course, that jackpot didn’t care one way or the other, for that “near” playback sent the jackpot to an astonishing $328 million!

The Quiet and Effective Lottery Double Strike

One thing both Lotto Texas and Powerball excel at is grabbing attention. Between Pattern streaks and monstrously large jackpots, these lotteries are difficult to ignore! Even though they’re masters of grandstanding, Powerball more so, they also excel in the art of subtlety.

There was no grandstanding to be had June 11, 2022. In fact, the big event in both lotteries this past Saturday night was their rising jackpots. Lotto Texas, no stranger to subtlety, saw the jackpot grow to $6 million. Meanwhile, Powerball’s mighty jackpot grew to an even mightier $243 million.

Is another quiet and effective night in store for Lotto Texas and Powerball Monday night?

Hot Weather. Hotter Mega Millions

August in June. That’s what it currently feels like in some parts of the U.S. Case in point, Lottery Trend headquarters is flirting with triple digits! It’s times like these we should be thankful for the many ways we can escape the heat like air conditioning, swimming pools, and lotteries.

Believe it or not, lotteries are great for escaping the heat. In the moments you’re picking out numbers, you’re forgetting about how hot it is, or at least trying to. With the millions and millions of dollars up for grabs, you can escape on a Caribbean cruise. If that’s still too warm, you can mosey on down to Australia, where winter is on its way! Unfortunately, if you played Mega Millions June 10, 2022, then you’ll be putting off those escape plans for now.

Mega Millions sent a powerful message by bringing back the {3-1-1-1} Pattern. With it came ripped up tickets, swearing and gnashing of teeth, and a jackpot that grew to $247 million.

The {3-1-1-1} Pattern encore was made possible by 3, 12, 14, 18, 32 and MB 4. This Pattern has now played 148 times.

There have now been 783 Mega Millions drawings, and this Pattern has played 18.9% of the time. Recall that the {3-1-1-1} Pattern was last seen June 7, 2022.

The [3-1-1-1] General Order, now with 58 appearances, has played in 39.2% of the 148 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 783 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 7.41% of the time. May 3, 2022 was the last time the [3-1-1-1] General Order played.

Now with eight appearances, the 3 1 1 0 0 1 Specific Order has played in 13.8% of the 58 drawings where the General Order was [3-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 5.41% of the 148 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.02% of all 783 drawings.

So far, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern appears to be dominating June, and the jackpot is nearly a quarter of a billion dollars! Could it be a {3-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat that keeps the jackpot rising, or will Mega Millions have other plans?

Night of the Three-peat Blocker

Mega Millions began June the same way it ended May: with an appearance by the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern. This Pattern is the most common Pattern in Mega Millions, and one reason for that is its tendency to repeat itself. Once the Pattern makes an appearance, an encore may not be far behind! And why stop there? That encore can be the steppingstone to a larger Pattern streak! But to get there, a three-peat needs to happen first. Thing is, that three-peat isn’t always meant to be.

A {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern certainly wasn’t meant to be Tuesday night. That three-peat blocker sent the jackpot to $226 million.

June 7, 2022 was a night for the {3-1-1-1} Pattern to shine. With winning numbers 4, 34, 40, 41, 53 and MB 3, this Pattern has now played 147 times.

The Weekend Playback with a Side of Combination Explosion

Ever since the end of April, Lotto Texas and Powerball have been fired up. Whether they’re blasting everyone with repeating Combinations or similar spreads, these lotteries don’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon! However, if we take a closer look at what happened May 7, 2022, that’s not entirely true.

One lottery saw a Combination explosion Saturday night, but the other didn’t. Both strategies paid off in the whole “Evading the players” scheme, though. Lotto Texas continued to hold strong with a jackpot of $13 million, and Powerball’s pushed onward to $59 million.

The Mega Millions Pattern Streak Strikeout

As Mega Millions bid farewell to April, it did so with an assist from the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern. Having played three times in a row,  a Pattern streak to start May wouldn’t have been out of the question. After all, this Pattern is no stranger to streaks! However, Mega Millions had other plans. A Pattern streak may not have come to fruition, but the momentum persisted as the jackpot grew to $70 million.

Lotto Texas and Powerball’s Grand Combination Conspiracy

Lotto Texas and Powerball did something nuts last Wednesday. While the former lottery took a break from repeating Four-Number Combinations, the latter took that ball and ran with it! Jackpots climbed and methodical madness ensued. Then, things eased up a bit that weekend, but that serenity didn’t last. Lotto Texas maintained some composure, but Powerball went crazy with the repeating Three-Number Combinations. Surely a midweek drawing would mean a quieter night, right?

Well, folks, the madness continued April 27, 2022. This time, Lotto Texas also took a walk on the wild side, bringing forward a repeating Five-Number Combination and the associated aftermath. Once the dust settled, a jackpot worth $10.75 million was left standing. Powerball went crazy with the repeating Three-Number Combinations again, and all it had to show for it was a jackpot that reset to $20 million. At least Powerball gave a player in Arizona 473 million reasons to be happy!

Lotto Texas and Powerball’s Weekend Wind Down

For those of us with traditional M-F, 9-to-5 jobs, the weekend can be a welcome breath of fresh air. Whether going into the office, working from home, or a mix of the two, everyone needs time to explore, to unwind, to chill. The act of relaxing is especially important after a busy week, for both man and lottery alike.

Lotto Texas’s reputation of being the most relaxed of the lotteries held strong Saturday night. There was no need for flashy plays to push the jackpot to $10.25 million. Powerball, however, was another story. After producing two repeating Four-Number Combinations in the span of a week, the glamour wore off some. Nonetheless, the beast of a jackpot remained. Taking it easy boosted the jackpot to $421 million.

The Thing About a Repeating Four-Number Combination Spring Fling

Novelty and spring go hand in hand. Although the flowers have since bloomed and everything is ever greener, spring is an excellent time to try new things. Take Powerball for instance. Did you know that Powerball likes repeating Four-Number Combinations now? Oh sure, it plays with the idea from time to time, but Powerball is really into them lately!

Barely half a week went by before a repeating Four-Number Combination popped up in Powerball. This, among other things, fueled the jackpot’s growth to $400 million. But, before we get to Powerball and the madness a repeating Four-Number Combination wrought, there’s the matter of Lotto Texas. This ever-patient lottery’s jackpot graciously crossed the $10 million jackpot threshold, and this is where we begin our analysis for April 20, 2022.
