The Season of (Repeating) Four-Number Combinations

Lotto Texas and Powerball finally slept off the Thanksgiving leftovers and jumped into the Christmas madness Saturday night. Powerball was the most energetic, with its {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore and the presence of a repeating Four-Number Combination! Speaking of, the presence of a repeating Four-Number Combination wasn’t all that Lotto Texas and Powerball had in common. With neither lottery seeing a grand prize winner, their respective jackpots rose to $11.5 million and $140 million.

With 2.5 weeks left before Christmas, there’s plenty of time for Pattern streaks to get established and for jackpots to enter crazy-high territory (like Mega Millions). Will Powerball’s {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern have a streak for the ages, or will another Pattern block its chances of a three-peat Wednesday night? Will Lotto Texas’s {4-2} Pattern do something “uncharacteristic” and go for the encore?

Roasted Playback & Encore Gravy

Thanksgiving Eve is undoubtedly one of the busiest days of the year. Be it braving the roads (or skies) or making that last-minute trip to the store, there’s hardly a dull moment!

Lotto Texas and Powerball were making their own Thanksgiving preparations. They spent the evening roasting up a Pattern playback, with a Pattern encore for dressing. The side dishes were repeating Four-and Three-Number Combinations, and for dessert, rising jackpots. Lotto Texas offered up a jackpot that rose to $9.75 million while Powerball’s was a prize that climbed to $110 million.

Lotto Texas and Powerball Fall Back

After gorging yourself on Halloween candy and jumping onto a holiday sale, what better way to sleep it off than with setting the clock back one hour? If you’re reading this blog from either the U.S. or Canada, you most likely set your clock back one hour this weekend, making the already early sunsets come even earlier.

Lotto Texas and Powerball also “fell back” November 2nd, 2019. Neither lottery had any big plays in their arsenals. Perhaps this was the opening one Powerball player needed as he (or she) became the sole winner of $150 million! Naturally, the jackpot reset to $40 million. Lotto Texas chugged along, building itself up to $7.75 million.

“Un-4-2-itous!”

We’ve hit a snag at Lottery Trend headquarters. The computer we use to build our websites BSODed on us, thanks to a wonky Windows update. No updated sites mean no pictures. Hopefully, it’ll be up and running soon and I can grab the pictures then. Well, as they say, the show must go on!

Update 10/23/19: There are now pictures! Keep scrolling to see them.

There was nothing wonky about either Lotto Texas or Powerball this past Saturday. The lotteries kept players on their toes, and away from the grand prizes, once again. Lotto Texas took the path of an uncommon Pattern and boosted the jackpot to $6.75 million. Powerball played its most common Pattern and sent its grand prize to $120 million.

Coming Down and Going Up

A five-month streak of no winners is a tough act to follow, and September 28th, 2019 was a night of resting and regaining composure. The main takeaway was that no one could claim the grand prize in either Lotto Texas or Powerball. Their respective jackpots rose to $5.25 million and $60 million.

It looks like October is off to a quiet start but that doesn’t mean the month will stay that way. This was the month that produced beastly jackpots after all!

A Lotto-Tight Fist

An unexpected character evolution has taken hold in the lottery world over the past few months. Lotto Texas, generally the meek, unassuming lottery, has gotten a taste of crazy jackpot fever, relatively speaking. There were no grand prize winners September 7th, 2019, and this pushed the jackpot over the $20 million mark ($20.5 million, in fact)!

Powerball’s jackpot hasn’t received the “nurturing” Lotto Texas has. These past few months have seen the prize reset three times. Not so Saturday night. With no grand prize winner, the jackpot now stands at $50 million.

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.

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.

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?

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!
