The Ghost of October 21st

What’s Christmas without at least one reference to A Christmas Carol? Whether you’ve seen the various adaptations or read it, you know about the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Believe it or not, this perennial Christmas classic is tied to today’s post.

Lotteries are constantly visited by the past; that’s part of their nature, and what makes Lottery Trend possible. What made December 5, 2020 interesting was the prominence of the number 21. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball were visited (haunted?) by the ghost of October 21. The visitation generated a boost to both their jackpots! Lotto Texas rose to $5.5 million and Powerball’s prize climbed to $262 million.

Visit from “Distant Patterns”

Happy Thanksgiving to all our U.S. readers. Stay safe and use good judgement!

Many of us have “those relatives”. They seem to only come by during the holiday season, gifting you and the family with something cool or hoarding the pie. Or you’ve only met them once or twice when you were a little kid and don’t see them again until several years later (if ever).  

The Patterns that played in both Lotto Texas and Powerball on November 25, 2020 were much like those relatives. These rarely seen Patterns had their say and boy did they have a lot to say! So much, in fact, that the jackpot climbed to $9 million in Lotto Texas and $216 million in Powerball.

Why, Whatever “Four”?

That time of year is almost here. A time of treats, trickery, turkey, and bright decorations. That’s right: “Hallowthankmas” is upon us! While people scramble to find the best deals, what do lotteries do to prepare for this cherished time?

If you were Lotto Texas or Powerball on October 21, 2020, then you fell in love with the number 4. Well, repeating Four-Number Combinations, anyway. Yes, Powerball got in on the repeating Four-Number Combination action and believe it or not, one of its “babies” is a repeating Three-Number Combination that played for the fourth time! This love of repeating Four-Number Combinations paid off for the lotteries. Lotto Texas jumped to $6.5 million and Powerball crossed over the $100 million line; $102 million became the prize.

Naturally, a repeating Four-Number Combination births four repeating Three-Number Combinations. One Combination, 1, 3, and 13, has done this three times before, and all in the same year no less! This Combination actually debuted in the January 11, 2017 drawing. Subsequent appearances were October 11, 2017 and December 23, 2017.

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to show their love for repeating Four-Number Combinations Saturday night or will they step back?

The Grand Combination Explosion

When lotteries get into lofty positions, they’re (usually) not willing to give them up easily. Lotto Texas has had a taste of the lottery high life. What with its jackpot closer to $40 million than it ever has been in a very long time, it’s has no plans to go down so easily! And even though Powerball is no stranger to being in such a comfortable spot, it too must put up the occasional fight to prove its worth.

When you come for lotteries, you best not miss.

Except, everyone missed September 5, 2020. Both lotteries had the insane idea of lobbing at least one repeating Four-Number Combination. Lotto Texas also threw in a similar spread for good measure. Sure, the country club hall is a mess, but Lotto Texas was pleased as punch upon reaching $39 million. Powerball was content with $75 million and thought there was no way that “uppity” Lotto Texas could catch up.

That night, the winning numbers were 12, 15, 16, 23, 38 and 43, and their spread was 03:01:07:15:05. Different numbers played both nights but notice that the differences between numbers were the same, although in different orders. A fine specimen of a similar spread, wouldn’t you say?

  • 27, 47, PB 7
  • 21, 47, PB 7

The top three Combinations made their debut in the July 11th drawing mentioned earlier. Although the last Combination in the group played on that date (naturally), its debut was January 27, 2018.

But, wait! There’s one more Combination: 15, 22 and 27 debuted June 24, 2020.

As the days grow shorter, the jackpots grow larger. Lotto Texas isn’t going to go down without a fight, and Powerball is content with the gap between them. Of course, if Powerball isn’t careful, it may find itself looking at Lotto Texas from behind. On the other hand, fate may deal Lotto Texas a bad hand, leaving Powerball to gloat as the “uppity” little lottery from down South has to start all over again at $5 million. What awaits these lotteries in the week ahead?

A Near Playback at the Edge of $100 Million

Yet another holiday weekend is upon us. Labor Day is traditionally the last holiday of the summer season. Time to squeeze in that last beach party and have that blowout barbeque! Problem is, there’s a pandemic, and being stuck in a large crowd, intentionally or no, is not a bright idea.

Why not try for Mega Millions instead? If you’ve always dreamed of owning your own island, the winnings in that lottery should help you get started! Well sir (or ma’am), if you had tried your hand at this lottery September 4, 2020, you’re just going to have to keep dreaming.

Mega Millions was one step closer to joining the $100 million club. With no grand prize winners, the jackpot rose to $97 million. There were no tricks, nothing special that needed to be done. All it took was playing a rarely seen Pattern.

Fortifying the Jackpot Fortresses

A grand shift is underway. July is almost over, and there are only a few more weeks until the start of the school year. Pandemic or no, that time of year is filled with both excitement and dread. Such a shift doesn’t exist for Lotto Texas or Powerball. Instead, they spent the night of July 25, 2020 fortifying their jackpot fortresses.

Both lotteries saw rising jackpots, one of which was thanks to the power of a playback. Lotto Texas grew to $28.5 million, the highest this blog has covered. Powerball extended its membership in the nine-figure club with a prize worth $126 million.

Summertime Jackpot Hikes

Hiking is one way to explore the great outdoors! Just get your hiking gear, pack some sandwiches and water, drive until you see woods and…

Oh, wait. Wrong type of “hike”.

Today’s post is about a different kind of hike, the kind of hike you see when the cost of something, or in this case, a jackpot, rises. Lotto Texas has been on a roll; it jackpot is at the highest it’s been in a long time. Meanwhile, Powerball’s jackpot is getting closer to the $100 million mark.

Will the jackpots in Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to rise like the summer temperatures?

A Canyon-Wide Jackpot Difference

Arizona gets hot in the summer. So hot, in fact, that plastic recycle bins melt and you can bake cookies on your car’s dashboard. Despite this, summer is the most popular time of year tourists go to view one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.

Why this fixation on Arizona? Because on June 9, 2020, it was a single player from this sizzling hot state who took down the monstrous jackpot! Additionally, thirteen other players were able to get five of the six numbers, winning them a cool $1 million each.

Like Powerball, the Mega Millions jackpot resets to $20 million. Would you believe that this is currently the smallest of the Big Three jackpots?
