Spreading Lottery-Brand Madness

We’ve all been told (or should have been told) to never judge a book by its cover. That piece of advice must always be considered when performing lottery analysis. On the surface, both Lotto Texas and Powerball’s six numbers are unassuming. After all, they’re just numbers.

Well, this past Saturday saw a monstrous jackpot grow even larger, a Pattern encore, and a similar spread. The jackpot climbed to $5.25 million in Lotto Texas and $343 million in Powerball. Just numbers, indeed!

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The January 18th, 2020 Lotto Texas drawing saw an encore for the {4-1-1} Pattern! This Pattern made its 189th appearance with winning numbers 17, 20, 27, 33, 35, and 45.

This Pattern has now played in 11% of the 1726 drawings and was last seen January 15th, 2020.

Now with 63 appearances, the 1 4 1 Specific Order has played in 33.3% of the 189 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1726 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 3.65% of the time. Prior to Saturday night, the 1 4 1 Specific Order played January 4th, 2020.

Similar Spread

The {4-1-1} Pattern encore wasn’t the only Lotto Texas highlight. A similar spread was nestled inside! The spread for Saturday night was 03:07:06:02:10. On June 18th, 2011, the winning numbers were 22, 29, 35, 37, 40, and 50, and the spread was 07:06:02:03:10. When you see a similar spread remember this sage advice: The differences between drawn numbers are the same, but their orders are different.

Four-Number Combinations

Saturday night was sans-repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

Going into next week, we’ll need to keep an eye out for Powerball. That beast of a jackpot will get toppled sometime, but will it be Wednesday night, and with a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore? Meanwhile, the {4-1-1} Pattern isn’t known to make three-peats in Lotto Texas, but nothing seems too out of the ordinary for these lotteries!  

One Jackpot Falls. Another Stands

The ride of a jackpot high has to end sometime, and on January 15th, 2020, that time came for one lottery. Lotto Texas came into the new year riding on the high of its increasing jackpot. With the $17.5 million prize now won, the jackpot reset itself to $5 million. The Powerball jackpot stood firm, rising to $321 million.

This current ride on the jackpot high will end for Powerball one day. Will it be Saturday night, or will it be much later?

Weekend at Lotteries’

The first weekend of 2020 got off a quiet start in the lottery world. For instance, “sister” lottery Mega Millions went into hibernation mode this past Friday. The payoff was a larger jackpot heading into Tuesday. Now, how long that will last is anyone’s guess.

Lotto Texas and Powerball copied their “sister” and decided to take it easy. Powerball was able to exert a bit more energy though, with a couple of showings from repeating Three-Number Combinations. That was overshadowed by the jackpot rising to $258 million. Lotto Texas may have been at rest, but it wasn’t about to pass up the opportunity to send its jackpot to $16.5 million.

The {4-1-1} on New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve is a time of reflection and a time to party. Drinks, movies, games, all these are well and good, but no celebration is complete without fireworks! Mega Millions said “Adios!” to 2019 with a fireworks display of its own by showcasing an uncommonly seen Pattern and an entourage of repeating Three-Number Combinations. As the fireworks show ended, the players were left with a jackpot that climbed to $60 million.

It’s a Lottery Kind of Christmas

Christmas 2019 was a doubleheader lottery-wise! Lotto Texas and Powerball may not have the power to bring Peace on Earth and Goodwill To Men ™, but they had the power to bring merriment and hope. Winning millions of dollars would make an excellent gift at anytime of the year. But, as is the paradoxical nature of lotteries, Lotto Texas and Powerball brought great joy…and great sorrow. With no grand prizes claimed in either lottery, their respective jackpots rose to $14.75 million and $200 million.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

In our last post, we were wondering if a {3-2-1} Pattern three-peat would be in the cards. Lotto Texas decided to offer the {4-1-1} Pattern instead, with winning numbers 8, 15, 16, 17, 25, and 49. This Pattern has now played 186 times.

A Three-Peat and a Spread Start a Fire

Nothing like a nice cup of hot tea on a brisk autumn day to warm up, right? Oh, you’re not the tea type? Perhaps you’re a coffee fiend, or a cocoa connoisseur, or going straight for the bourbon? Whatever your drink preference, you just want to sit by the fire with your buddies or, even better, get away from it all with a trip to Florida or the Caribbean. But, to make that dream come true, you need the money for that trip. Or, even better, enough to retire to Florida or the Caribbean! And, why not win it all in one night?

Except, Lotto Texas and Powerball didn’t play nice Wednesday night. In fact, they got a kick out of perplexing players far and wide. The grand prizes went unclaimed in both lotteries. Powerball had the most fun, toying with a similar spread and all, not to mention the debut of a Specific Order. All that led to a prize rise to $70 million. Lotto Texas didn’t stand idly by; its {3-2-1} Pattern three-peat made the climb to $8.5 million possible.

Once all 429 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 1.40% of the time. The [4-1-1] General Order was last seen in the June 22nd, 2019 drawing.

One of Powerball’s big strikes of the evening was the debut of the 0 4 0 0 1 1 Specific Order! With that said, this Specific Order has now played in 16.67% of the six drawings where the General Order was [4-1-1], 8.33% of the 12 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern, and in 0.23% of all 429 drawings.

Similar Spread

The other big strike was the similar spread. Wednesday’s spread was 03:01:01:38. On February 20th, 2016, the numbers 11, 12, 15, 16, 54, and PB 25 were drawn. Their spread was 01:03:01:38. Remember, in a similar spread the differences between the numbers drawn are the same, but their orders are different.

Three-Number Combination(s)

The final blow came with the repeating Three-Number Combination 23, 28, and 66.

This Combination made its debut in the May 1st, 2019 drawing.

Lotto Texas seems to have fallen in love with the {3-2-1} Pattern, and we’ll have to see if a four-peat is in the cards Saturday night. On the Powerball front, could the {4-1-1} Pattern be bold enough to go for the encore?

A Lucky Night for {4-1-1}

Friday night: The gateway to the weekend. From football to eating out to binge watching, there are activities for everyone! For those of you out there in Internet Land who want to retire early (who doesn’t?!), there’s Mega Millions, ready to greet you with robust jackpots. Why, every now and then, the jackpot is beastly.

Whether a taunt or a blessing in disguise, the prize couldn’t be claimed by anyone. The October 18th, 2019 drawing led to the jackpot rising to $82 million, all thanks to an appearance from the {4-1-1} Pattern.

As luck would have it, the {4-1-1} Pattern made its 13th appearance with 18, 58, 60, 65, 67, and MB 20.

The 0 1 0 0 4 1 Specific Order was first seen in the October 6th, 2015 drawing, reconstructed from the 0 1 0 1 3 1 Specific Order.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations Friday night.

With an uncommonly seen Pattern making the rounds Friday night, it would truly be something if it comes back for an encore Tuesday night! Encore or no, we’ll have to see if the jackpot will continue to rise, or will it be brought down to size.

What in the World?!

After another very long day on the job, I was unable to provide y’all with the latest lottery news. In the meantime, here’s a special post by the Lottery Trend architect herself, Mary Harris. I want to thank her for writing this up last night. Everything will be “on schedule” tomorrow.

Hi! Mary Semiene Harris, here, filling in for Lotterymeister, Freyja Harris.   I really don’t know the first thing about blogging. I’ve read some blogs, but I don’t know about blogs, per se. So, here goes.  

I assume that if you are reading this, it is because you are looking for information on either Lotto Texas or Powerball or both. And you’ve come to the right place.  Lottery Trend offers a consistent and unique perspective on the draws from Lotto Texas, Powerball, and Mega Millions. Unique in that we provide information that helps the reader get a better handle on selecting winning combinations. 

We Started with the TEXAS Lottery

With very little money in hand, about $5.00 or so, I picked winning Four-Number Combinations A LOT. I started playing in November 1992, and later, got a little lottery club together (four or five people at any given time). Between us we played a total of 18 to 24 combinations, spending anywhere from $18.00 to $24.00, and came very close to winning the jackpot itself, around Christmas (1996?). Again, we picked a winning Four-Number Combination, and we were one-digit off with the remaining two numbers. Texas changed its system from 1-50 to 1-54, and I got involved in other things. I did not play the lottery for at least seven years, but in 2006, for reasons I will not go into, I got dragged back in. I started winning Four-Number Combinations again, and swore when I hit the 30 mark, I would quit counting. I hit my 30th Four-Number Combination win in 2008, and I stopped counting. I’ve won Four-Number Combination sets several times since, but needless to say, I’m ready for that jackpot, but I can’t complain too much since $5.00 is my limit and I don’t play all the time. As of this writing, it has been over two years since I played at all. I’d always said that I needed to put a club together (more money available for playing means increased odds of winning, and no additional financial risk), but I, personally, have not had the time. I’m still working behind the scene on Lottery Trend.

But this is my vision for Lottery Trend: That people who come to the website, would see the value of it, and then they could form their own lottery clubs, and would start winning jackpots, implementing strategies based on information provided by Lottery Trend. But back when we first introduced Lottery Trend, a relative gave me his honest opinion, telling me that he did not want anyone to know about the website. “Aah,” I thought. “That could be a problem.”

I noticed that this blog’s followers are few, but the actual visitors to this blog every month are in the thousands and from around the world. Not many are choosing to follow, but they don’t have to, because the information provided is free and easily accessible. No hurdles or anything to jump over.

Future plans are to expand the websites, providing more specifics, such as (1) providing odd/even statistics associated with each pattern, which will be based on six groups, rather than the present three for Lotto Texas, (2) providing and contrasting theoretical and actual pattern percentages, including general and specific order (i.e., what is running ahead/behind, and by how many drawings), and (3) by way of monthly or quarterly reports, providing an overall lottery synopsis covering said period.

We already possess the above-mentioned capability for all three lotteries but providing this information will depend on whether there is enough interest in subscribing (@ $5.00/month) to Lottery Trend . Stay tuned!

Now for the October 2, 2019 analysis. We’re going to start with the {4-1-1} Pattern

Texas Lottery

October kicked off with the {4-1-1} Pattern playing the numbers 9, 26, 39, 42, 47, and 49, Specific Order 1_1_4.

New month, new Pattern. Source: lotterytrend.com.

Did you know that if this was the pattern you played last night, your odds of winning were about 1 out of 3,000,000, rather than 1 out of 26,000,000 (see what strategy does?)? If you played this specific order, your odds improved to about 1 out of 1,000,000. If you spent $10.00 playing this Specific Order last night, even better – 1 out of 100,000. Now imagine that you were part of a club…

Specific Order 1_1_4 comprises 35% of the winning drawings that make up the {4-1-1} Pattern, and 3.83% of all 1695 Lotto Texas drawings (numbers ranging from 1 through 54). The {4-1-1} Pattern characterizes 10.91% of those same 1695 drawings. Both the Pattern and Specific Order had not seen the light of day since August 28 2019.

There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

Although the {3-2-1} Pattern dominates Lotto Texas (this pattern is based on arranging 1 through 54 into three groups, 18 numbers each), this is not so in Powerball. In Powerball, we divide 69 numbers into four groups, 14 numbers each, and a fifth group with the last thirteen numbers of 1 through 69.  We put all 26 Power balls into the sixth and last group. 

The {3-2-1} Pattern in Powerball makes up 5.47% of all Powerball drawings (compared to 52-53% in Lotto Texas) so far (1 through 69, Power Balls 1 through 26). This Pattern and the [3-2-1] General Order, were last seen on June 5, 2019.

Looking at Wednesday’s drawing, the [3-2-1] General Order slightly leads its counterpart, General Order [2-3-1], by 14 to 12, and that is due to the drawing of 4, 8, 10, 43, 53 and Power Ball 7

A quiet start for Powerball. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

The [3-2-1] General Order makes up 53.8% of all drawings designated as part of the {3-2-1} Pattern in Powerball, and 2.78% of all 417 Powerball drawings. That said, we hadn’t seen Specific Order 3_0_0_2_0_1 since its debut March 16, 2016. With only two appearance so far, it makes up 14.28% of the [3-2-1] General Order, 7.69% of the {3-2-1} Pattern, and  0.48% of all 417 Powerball drawings.

There we no repeat Three-Number Combinations.

 Freyja had other appointments today, and I volunteered to fill in. It was a pleasure blogging (is it “blogging to you” or “blogging for you”?). Oh, well. Have a nice evening!

The End of the Summer High

And so, it ended.

After a five-month streak, Lotto Texas  came down from its high September 25th, 2019. How fitting that this happened in the first drawing of the season! As is protocol, the prize receded to $5 million.

On the other side of the spectrum, Powerball didn’t see anyone claim the grand prize. A visit from a very uncommon Pattern sent the jackpot climbing quietly for $50 million.
