Lotto Texas and Powerball’s Golden Opportunity

Playing the lottery is like a game of cat-and-mouse. Players are after the big bucks, and the lottery itself is avoiding capture for as long as possible. Although no one would turn their nose up at $50 million, just about everyone would salivate at the potential to win $200 million or even $1 billion!

A billion-dollar jackpot is a ways off. In any case, fortune smiled upon Lotto Texas and Powerball Wednesday night. That good fortune, of course, was not getting caught! This opened a golden opportunity to boost their jackpots and getting the players psyched up to try again. Lotto Texas clocked in at $8.75 million and Powerball at $199 million.

Will Saturday night see the return of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern in Powerball, and could either lottery see a playback?

The Juneteenth Playback Special

June 19th, or Juneteenth, commemorated the end of slavery in Texas. Although the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed in 1863, it wasn’t until June 19, 1865 that Union soldiers sailed into Galveston and read the Emancipation Proclamation that slavery was abolished in Texas.  

Yet, slavery hadn’t been fully abolished in the United States. Kentucky and Delaware, both Union states, continued to practice slavery until the ratification of the 13th Amendment six months later. This is because the Emancipation Proclamation only applied to the Confederacy, of which Texas was a part of.

Today, Juneteenth commemorates the end of slavery in the United States, and as of this past Thursday, a federal holiday. Not only is Juneteenth a day of remembrance for black Americans,  but it’s also a day of celebration.

Lotto Texas and Powerball were linked to this momentous occasion this year. Lotto Texas kept it classy while the jackpot grew to $6 million. Meanwhile, Powerball took a different approach to get its jackpot up to $63 million.

A Lottery’s Sense of Normalcy

Given that we’re dealing with lotteries here, the term “normalcy” is loaded. What’s “normal” for a lottery is far different than what we mere humans consider such. Oh, we crave excitement, but our actions show that we desire stability and predictability. Many of us wouldn’t be able to cope if our lives had the peaks and valleys most commonly seen in lotteries. There’s no set time for how long a jackpot grows; it can be over a period of several months, or it can be claimed just a single drawing after the reset.

The “normalcy” that returned on June 2, 2021 was Lotto Texas getting knocked back down to $5 million. A Plano player saw an opportunity and went for it. Meanwhile, Powerball’s jackpot was unashamedly high. With no one able to knock it off its high horse, the jackpot there grew to $286 million.

The Spreading Power of Jackpots

Special thanks to guest blogger Romulun Harris for filling in on Saturday!

The Mega Millions jackpot was the talk of the lottery world. For three months, that oak tree was nurtured by specific Patterns and the frustration of determined players. That frustration came to an end this past Friday when a Pennsylvanian player cut the mighty tree down.

As one tree fell, two others stood tall. May 22, 2021 was a busy night for Lotto Texas and Powerball. A Pattern three-peat and a similar spread were two stand-out developments. These fed into the jackpots rising once again. Lotto Texas jumped to $17.5 million, and Powerball expanded to $236 million.

Lotto Texas

Similar Spread

The 200th appearance of an uncommonly seen Pattern was a momentous occurrence after all. Perhaps it was fitting to throw in a similar spread as well! Saturday night’s spread was 08:13:05:01:02. This spread is similar to the one featured in the September 19, 2001 drawing. The winning numbers for that night were 8, 13, 15, 28, 29 and 37 with a spread of 05:02:13:01:08. Remember: the differences between numbers are the same, though not so for the order of the numbers.

Playback and Something Like It

The playback buzz was in the air this past Wednesday night. Its presence was certainly felt in Lotto Texas and although it grabbed a hold of Powerball, it didn’t stick the landing. The only thing these lotteries had in common February 3, 2021 was rising jackpots. These rose to $6 million and $30 million, respectively.

In the meantime, 2020 paid a visit to Lotto Texas and Powerball December 9th. This visitation was enough to edge out all the other years completely.

However, those who cheer for increasing jackpots will be happy to hear that the prizes did indeed increase! Lotto Texas grew to a respectable $5.75 million and Powerball ascended to $277 million.

Repeating Four-Number Combinations: The Aftermath

Two repeating Four-Number Combinations: one in Lotto Texas, and one in Powerball. That last mention wasn’t a typo. A Powerball’s repeating Four-Number Combination always gives birth to four repeating Three-Number Combinations. It’s a law of nature.

All that happened over the weekend. Then came November 18, 2020 and both Lotto Texas and Powerball were still picking up the pieces. They were too exhausted to deal with Pattern encores or anything fancy like an Australia Play. Only one lottery had the strength to play a repeating Four-Number Combination (three guesses who) but they both saw a jump in their jackpots. Lotto Texas grew to $8.5 million and Powerball grew to $192 million.

October 17, 2020 was one of those nights. Both lotteries saw their jackpots increase. Lotto Texas stepped up to $6.25 million and Powerball ascended to $91 million.

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.

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.

Lotto Texas

The uncommonly seen {4-2} Pattern made its 194th appearance, with winning numbers 4, 9, 16, 17, 20 and 35.

This Pattern has now played in 10.8% of the 1792 Lotto Texas drawings and was last seen August 15, 2020.

Now with 43 appearances, the 4 2 0 Specific Order has played in 22.2% of the 194 drawings where {4-2} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1792 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 2.40% of the time. Prior to Saturday night, the 4 2 0 Specific Order played June 6, 2020.

Similar Spread

Saturday night’s numbers had a spread of 05:07:01:03:15. March 18, 2017 had a spread similar to this. 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?

Four-Number Combinations

Four repeating Four-Number Combinations were invited to the party:

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball also decided to play one of its rarer Patterns. With winning numbers 15, 21, 22, 27, 47 and PB 7, the {4-1-1} Pattern made its 15th appearance.

This Pattern has now played in 2.92% of the 514 Powerball drawings and was last seen May 27, 2020.

The [4-1-1] General Order, now with seven appearances, has played in 46.7% of the 15 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 514 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has also played 1.36% of the time. The [4-1-1] General Order was last seen November 13, 2019.

Now with a grand total of two appearances, the 0 4 0 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in 28.6% of the seven drawings where the General Order was [4-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 13.3% of the 15 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.39% of all 514 drawings. The 0 4 0 1 0 1 Specific Order made its first appearance in the May 16, 2018 drawing.

Four-Number Combination

Powerball’s contribution to the repeating Four-Number Combination pot was 21, 27, 47, and PB 7.

This Combination debuted in the July 11, 2018 drawing.

Three-Number Combinations

Of course, that repeating Four-Number Combination had four repeating Three-Number Combinations as part of its entourage:

  • 21, 27, 47
  • 21. 27, PB 7
  • 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?
