Mix One Near-Playback with One Repeating Combination Cluster

We’re halfway through June and two things have been consistent: hot days and a rising Mega Millions jackpot. Upon taking a closer look at the June 14, 2022 drawing, that jackpot went one way, and that was up! After the dust settled, the prize had grown to $273 million.

General Lottery Analysis

Rather than go for a {3-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat, Mega Millions decided to go with the uncommonly seen {4-1-1} Pattern. With winning numbers 30, 37, 38, 42, 58 and MB 22, this Pattern has played 17 times.

There have now been 784 Mega Millions drawings, and this Pattern has now played 2.17% of the time.

The [4-1-1] General Order, now with nine appearances, has played in 52.9% of the 17 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 784 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 1.15% of the time.

Both the {4-1-1} Pattern and the [4-1-1] General Order were last seen September 4, 2020.

Now with two appearances, the 0 0 4 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 22.2% of the nine drawings where the General Order was [4-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 11.8% of the 17 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.26% of all 784 drawings. The 0 0 4 0 1 1 Specific Order made its first appearance April 21, 2015.

Three-Number Combinations

 A couple of interesting things happened with the repeating Three-Number Combinations. For starters, one of the Combinations played twice before. The other? Well, would you believe they all debuted in the same year?

Will the jackpot soar ever higher Friday night?

The Saturday Night Summer Chiller

From the madness of repeating Combinations to a jackpot winner, Lotto Texas and Powerball had quite a week! After an eventful week (there was a holiday after all), these lotteries took it down a notch Saturday night. By the power of uncommonly played Patterns, both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their respective jackpots rise to $5.25 million and $198 million.

The Reigning Combination Affliction

Last time we saw our dear friends Lotto Texas and Powerball, there were mutterings of a conspiracy amongst them. Both lotteries took it upon themselves to bombard everyone with repeating Combinations aplenty. Based off what happened April 30, 2022, the word “conspiracy” caught one lottery off-guard. In contrast to earlier in the week, this lottery took it down a notch. Meanwhile, the other lottery didn’t care a whit, further delving into the madness. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their respective jackpots climb to $11.25 million and $27 million.

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 Patterns Less Played…

What is it they say about the Patterns less played? They don’t play often, obviously, but how does that impact lottery players? Well, in that regard, they’re just like their brethren who show up more often. At least one person is going to walk away much wealthier after a lottery drawing, or there will be much (subdued) anger and disappointment. Yet, that anger and disappointment subside. When no one wins the grand prize, that means another chance, and another chance means even more money to win. After all, how boring would the lottery be if there wasn’t a shakeup now and then?

Lotto Texas and Powerball certainly shook things up Wednesday night! What could have been a night of Pattern repeats, and they certainly had the Patterns that lend themselves to that sort of thing, went in a different direction. By providing exposure to Patterns that don’t play often, they pushed the jackpots upward once again! Lotto Texas ascended gracefully to $7 million, and Powerball barged in with $180 million.

Shades of Christmas…in January

The days are getting longer, it’s the dead of winter, and it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Wait, what?! Christmas was last month! True, but it’s colder than it was last month, and there’s always that one person who leaves up Christmas decorations year-round. Let’s not forget that the lottery world doesn’t adhere to our sense of time. Holidays, or shades of them, can strike at any time.

Lotto Texas saw shades of Christmas January 26, 2022, and saw its jackpot rise to $7.75 million. Powerball didn’t see any shades of Christmas (that was last week), but that had no effect on the jackpot. After the dust settled, the Powerball jackpot rose to $104 million.

From a Playback to a Common Pattern

The lotteries’ respective jackpots climbed to $10 million and $205 million.
