Jackpot Madness: Spring Fever Edition

The calendar says “Winter”, but Lotto Texas and Powerball are ready for spring! March 16th saw a warm-up in the Lottery World, although “warm-up” may be a bit of an understatement. With no grand prize winners, Powerball’s jackpot officially went past the half-billion-dollar mark. More specifically, we’re looking at least $550 million going into Wednesday night! Lotto Texas had a touch of the “Jackpot Fever”, with a prize now at $11 million. Although not nearly as monstrous as Powerball, that’s plenty robust.

Four-Number Combinations

For fear of being overshadowed by the monster jackpot in Powerball, or other (mundane) reasons, there were no repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

This Wednesday marks the official start of spring. Powerball’s prize is currently $550 million, but there’s a good chance it’ll climb again before the actual playdate. This is something to keep an eye on. On a lighter note, will either the {3-2-1} or {3-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore?

From the Ashes

March 6th was Ash Wednesday. For practicing Catholics, it was the first day of Lent, a time of fasting, prayer, and repentance. For everyone else, it marked another Mardi Gras come and gone. Regardless of what you practice, Wednesday was a reserved night for Lotto Texas and Powerball.

Except for the similar spread in Lotto Texas and the rampaging beast of a jackpot in Powerball. With no one to claim the grand prize for either lottery, their respective grand prizes are now a cool $9.25 million and a staggering $414 million.

Other than those, quiet night. Totally.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 8, 15, 24, 27, 34, and 43, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its 863rd appearance.

Of the 1635 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has now played 52.8% of the time and was last seen February 23rd, 2019.

Now with 140 appearances, the 2 3 1 Specific Order has played in 16.2% of the 863 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also played in 8.56% of all 1635 drawings. Prior to Wednesday night, the 2 3 1 Specific Order played January 12th, 2019.

Similar Spread

Before we continue, a little refresher. A similar spread occurs when the difference between the numbers in two drawings are the same, but orders of said numbers are different.

Wednesday’s night spread was 07:09:03:07:09. This spread was similar to the one  seen on March 7th, 2018. That night, the spread was 07:09:07:09:03 and the winning numbers were 9, 16, 25, 32, 41, and 44. Can you believe that these similar spreads appeared 52 weeks apart?

Four-Number Combinations

Repeating Four-Number Combinations took a backseat. The {3-2-1} Pattern thought having a similar spread was enough showing off for one night.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 129th appearance with winning numbers 6, 10, 21, 35, 46, and PB 23.

The [2-1-1-1-1] General Order made its 36th appearance and has now played in 27.9% of the 129 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 357 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 10.1% of the time. Prior to Wednesday night, the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order played February 6th, 2019.

Now with nine appearances, the 2 1 1 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in 25% of the 36 drawings where the General Order was [2-1-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 6.98% of the 129 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 2.52% of all 357 drawings. We last saw the 2 1 1 1 0 1 Specific Order on January 30th, 2019.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

With no Pattern streaks in either lottery, there could be either a Pattern encore or something completely unexpected. We’re also looking at a beast of a jackpot for Powerball heading into Saturday’s drawing. Will someone catch the beast, or will it evade capture?

Mega Millions’ $273 Million March

After what happened this past Tuesday, Mega Millions had to step up its game in the March 1st, 2019 drawing. How could playing six repeating Three-Number Combinations, four of which were bundled up within a repeating Four-Number Combination be topped?

By having someone win the grand prize, of course! The $273 million jackpot was won by a single player from New Jersey. Going into Tuesday’s drawing, the prize will start at $40 million.

With no Pattern streak and the grand prize claimed, Tuesday night will be a quiet one. But this is early March, “In like a lion” and all that. Will the {3-2-1} Pattern do the unthinkable and go for the encore?

Pattern Love and a Wild Jackpot

February is just about over, and the love affair with the {3-2-1} Pattern continued in Lotto Texas. Meanwhile, Powerball moved on to yet another Pattern. Far be it from a quiet night, February 23rd saw sparks fly with repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations. With the grand prizes evading capture once again, the respective jackpots climbed to $8 million and $322 million.

As we end the month, it looks like Powerball will continue its crazy-high jackpot path. Lotto Texas and the {3-2-1} Pattern are getting along, and this Pattern is notorious for Pattern streaks. We’ll have to see Wednesday whether a {3-2-1} Pattern six-peat comes to fruition and if Powerball continues to climb.

A Streak and a Breakup

There appeared to be a shakeup in the Lottery World. After just two dates, Powerball called it quits with the {3-1-1-1} Pattern. Meanwhile, Lotto Texas and the {3-2-1} Pattern had another go. Things got even hotter with the debut of a new Specific Order and a repeating Three-Number Combination. Throw in rising grand prizes of $7.75 million and $304 million, February 20th was anything but a quiet night!

The {3-2-1} Pattern and 1 2 3 Specific Order just wanted Lotto Texas for themselves. This, in turn, led to the repeating Four-Number Combinations getting edged out.

Regardless of what happened last week, both lotteries finished strong. Lotto Texas may have a thing going with the {3-2-1} Pattern but Powerball has the whole “crazy-high” jackpot angle going into Saturday night. Will the love affair continue in Lotto Texas or is the (inevitable) breakup just around the corner?

Like (Lottery) Lovers Do

Right before Valentine’s Day, Lotto Texas and Powerball went on a double-date with the {3-2-1} Pattern and the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, respectively. The date was such a success that the Patterns wanted to go on another. That’s right; both lotteries saw a Pattern encore February 16th! To make the double-date even more memorable, interesting developments took shape in the repeating Four and Three-Number Combinations. That, and with prizes that rose to $7.5 million and $282 million, Saturday night was one to remember.

Lotto Texas

Two dates in one week. There is most certainly something to these relationships! Will Lotto Texas’s love affair with the {3-2-1} Pattern continue and will Powerball stick with the {3-1-1-1} Pattern Wednesday night?

El Amor de Las Loterías (Love of the Lotteries)

Happy Valentine’s Day! Before getting to tonight’s analysis, I would like to thank once more my guest blogger Romulun Harris for filling in on such short notice.

After a busy first half of the month, what with Pattern streaks and love affairs with repeating Combinations, February 13th was much quieter. Lotto Texas found its breakup with the {3-2-1} Pattern to be brief. Powerball decided to go with another Pattern, dashing the hopes of a second date with the {4-1-1} Pattern. With the prizes unclaimed, the lotteries’ respective prizes rose to $7.25 million and $260 million.

The February 9th Playback Spectacle

Momentum was ramped up Saturday night! For starters, Lotto Texas went ahead full throttle. This normally unassuming lottery appears to have developed a newfound spunk. Its affliction with Playback Fever was only tempered by its respectable $7 million grand prize.

Powerball, often seen as the grander of the two, showed a few symptoms of the Fever as well. However, a surprise Specific Order kept it from completely taking over. The prize continued climbing towards stratospheric heights, now standing at $242 million.

January truly was the month of the {3-2-1} Pattern and the results of Wednesday’s Lotto Texas drawing fortified it. This (normally) unassuming little lottery, what with its now $6.25 million prize, played its most common Pattern for the sixth time in a row!

Although Powerball didn’t see a Pattern encore, it too saw its most common Pattern make a play. The jackpot increased to $191 million, which gave it a boost going into February.
