Números Calientes (Hot Numbers)

If August 14th, 2019 was anything to go by, it may be a while yet before either Lotto Texas or Powerball cool down! Wednesday night saw them join forces and keep their respective prizes away from all who sought them. Lotto Texas continued its adventure in madness as the prize rose to $16 million. Powerball kept it classy (for now) as its prize rose to $149 million.

As summer vacation winds down, will Lotto Texas and Powerball follow suit, or will they continue to crank up the heat?

Spreading at the End of the Month

July is over. It’s still too hot to do much of anything except swim (or bake) and there’s only two weeks* until school starts. Time keeps on slippin’, as they say!

*Length of time may be different, depending on where you are.

Now, July 31st, 2019 didn’t rock the boat too much. Save for a similar spread, it was a quiet night. Neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball saw a grand prize winner, and their jackpots rose to $14.5 million and $102 million, respectively.

Note that although the differences between numbers were the same in both drawings, the orders were different.

Will Powerball start August with a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore, and will Lotto Texas continue its jackpot climb?

Lotteries of Solitude

After the madness we saw this past Wednesday, Lotto Texas and Powerball earned a well-deserved rest. On June 15th, they said “No!” to wild plays and Pattern streaks. Save for a Pattern encore and prizes that respectively rose to $8 million and $92 million, Saturday night was one of the quietest we’ve had in a while.

Was Saturday night a prelude for how the rest of the month will be or is it the calm before the storm? There is another half of June left in play, after all!

Of Shattered Streaks and Jackpot Beasts

Lotto Texas had some of the biggest upsets this past Saturday night. The {3-2-1} Pattern, having already played three times in a row, did not go on to a fourth appearance. With the King of Lotto Texas Patterns knocked off the throne, the prize rose to a respectable $6.5 million.

Meanwhile, Powerball found itself getting acquainted with not just a Pattern encore, but a General Order encore as well! The beast of a jackpot continued its rampage unabated. It happily welcomed a growth spurt and shot up to $325 million.

What all was responsible for the madness that took place May 25th, 2019?

The {4-2} Pattern made sure a {3-2-1} Pattern streak couldn’t be solidified. With winning numbers 8, 17, 21, 30, 31, and 35, the {4-2} Pattern made its 179th appearance.

With May nearly done, Powerball has the jackpot momentum going for it. Wednesday will be the last drawing of the month for both lotteries and it remains to be seen if Powerball will surge onward to June or if the prize will be claimed. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern is fond of Pattern streaks, or at least trying to establish them, so a three-peat is something we’ll need to keep an eye on.

Lotto Texas, the ever-so-quiet one, can’t be counted out. The prize is nothing to sneeze at and it’s possible that the {4-2} Pattern may well surprise us!

Exactly What It Spreads

Lottery Binge has been gracing the Internet for almost three years. We’ve covered playbacks, Pattern streaks, monster-sized jackpots, similar spreads, and so much more. You can rarely go wrong expecting at least one of the lotteries to see a rise in their jackpots. For instance, Lotto Texas and Powerball will be going into Saturday night with $5.25 million and $136 million, respectively. There just isn’t anything new to cover. Just variations of what we’ve seen before, right?

Wrong!

April 17th, 2019 was a night like no other. For the first time ever, we’re covering a little something called

THE EXACT SPREAD!

The {4-2} Pattern made its 178th appearance with winning numbers 7, 8, 15, 17, 29, and 30.

There’s always more to the numbers. Source: lotterytrend.com.

Of the 1647 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 10.8% of the time, and was last seen March 13th, 2019.

Now with 38 appearances, the 4 2 0 Specific Order has played in 21.3% of the 178 drawings where {4-2} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1647 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 2.31% of the time. Prior to Wednesday night, the 4 2 0 Specific Order played March 9th, 2019.

Exact Spread

It was Lotto Texas. Yes, the (often) reserved Lotto Texas that saw the exact spread.

Now, you’ve all heard of the similar spread. For those who haven’t, or need a refresher, a similar spread is what happens when the difference between the numbers in two drawings are the same, but orders of said numbers are different. With an exact spread, both the differences between the numbers in two drawings and the orders of said numbers are the same!

Wednesday night’s numbers had a spread of 01:07:02:12:01.

On April 21st, 2012, the winning numbers were 23, 24, 31, 33, 45, and 46. The spread that night was 01:07:02:12:01. To think that it was almost seven years ago!

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were also two repeating Four-Number Combinations:

  • 7, 17, 29, 30 (Debuted November 12th, 2011)
  • 7, 15, 17, 29 (Debuted April 16th, 2014)

Lotto Texas may never see its jackpot rise to the heights seen in Powerball, but it more than makes up for it with its own wild plays. Speaking of Powerball, a Pattern streak is under way.

Given the 369 Powerball drawings so far, this Pattern has played 36.6% of the time.

The [1-2-1-1-1] General Order appeared to be in the early stages of streak! With its three-peat, this General Order has now played 37 times. Of the 135 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern, this General Order has played 27.4% of the time and in roughly 10% of all 369 drawings.

Both the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern and the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order were last seen April 13th, 2019.

Now with seven appearances, the 1 2 0 1 1 1 Specific Order has played in 18.9% of the 37 drawings where the General Order was [1-2-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 5.19% of the 135 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in roughly 1.90% of all 369 drawings. We last saw the 1 2 0 1 1 1 Specific Order February 2nd, 2019.

Imagine if Powerball had seen a playback! It seems the lottery gods thought that would’ve been too much for mere mortals.  

Three-Number Combination(s)

Of course, who needs a playback when there’s at least one repeating Three-Number Combination, right? The lone Combination, 15, 66, and PB 15, made its debut August 26th, 2017.

A holiday weekend is coming up, so it’s possible that Powerball’s Pattern streak may hold. Of course, it could also slip away. Still, there are decent-sized jackpots up for grabs Saturday night.

(C’mon. You wouldn’t turn your nose up at $5.25 million!)

Will Saturday night be hopping mad, or will everything stew in silence?

Springtime Lotto Rush

What a month it’s been so far! Since March started, we have yet to see anyone win the grand prize in either Lotto Texas or Powerball. And, after what happened March 13th, both prizes eluded lotto players all over.

Lotto Texas had a rowdy night, what with its Pattern encore and $10.25 million prize. Powerball, meanwhile, continued onward with its jackpot high, with a prize now at a staggering $495 million!

Powerball will most certainly get past that half-billion-dollar threshold going into Saturday’s drawing. Lotto Texas kept its momentum going with a {4-2} Pattern encore and although a {4-2} Pattern three-peat isn’t likely, stranger things have happened. Will anyone walk away with either of the grand prizes or will the lotteries continue their jackpot highs?

Lotto Texas and Powerball in “Spring Fever”

In our last Lotto Texas/Powerball analysis, we covered a night filled with reservation and solitude. The biggest event of the evening was a similar spread in Lotto Texas.

March 9th was a complete turnaround! Saturday night was grand for fans of repeating Combinations, both the Three and Four-Number kind. When it came to jackpots, Powerball was king. The prize is now a whopping $448 million! Lotto Texas, ever so classy, was no slouch, either. Its prize is a hardy $9.75 million.

This Combination made its debut May 12th, 2018.

Spring is about new beginnings, and in this case, insanely large jackpots. Powerball is eager to take the new season by the horns with its nearly half-billion-dollar prize. As the jackpot seems to do in times like this, it’ll most likely be at that half-billion-dollar point, if not close. That’ll be something to keep an eye on heading into Wednesday night.

Lotto Texas will continue to remain classy. As it’s not one to get bit by the crazy-large jackpot bug, we’ll need to keep an eye out for more repeating Four-Number Combinations. Who knows? Maybe another similar spread is waiting in the wings?

Far from the Madness

This past Saturday and January 9th, 2019 were worlds apart. On Saturday, we saw repeating Four-Number Combinations in both Lotto Texas and Powerball. Wednesday…was not like that. The lotteries took a subtler approach; no encores, no fireworks. Their respective grand prizes rose quietly to $12.5 million and $96 million. But, as (comparatively) quiet as things were, Wednesday night was far from boring!

Precursor to a Christmas Blowout?

There’s less than a week left until Christmas! That means a couple of weeks with the kids, panic-buying for gifts, and gettin’ down with the lottery.

Here’s the deal. Powerball is following in Mega Millions’s steps. The fallout of the December 19th drawing was the grand prize jumping to $281 million. Lotto Texas, gracious as it ever was, eased into a $8.75 million jackpot.
