There be Lottery Fireworks

To our readers in the United States: Happy Fourth of July! May it be full of grilling, companionship, relaxation, and fireworks.

On July 3, 1996, one movie took the world by storm. An alien invasion movie with plucky, loveable characters, special effects that (mostly) hold up to this day, and a stellar (no pun intended) soundtrack. That movie was Independence Day, and for everyone who saw it in the theater, especially for the 90s kids out there (like yours truly), it was a thrill like no other. Twenty-five years later, and the movie has become a staple of holiday viewing.

July 3, 2021 saw a dazzling display of fireworks from both Lotto Texas and Powerball. A three-peat and a playback were featured, and the jackpots shot up once more! The Lotto Texas jackpot blasted its way up to $7 million, and Powerball’s jackpot soared to $113 million.

“Spreading the Jackpot Madness” or “The Inner Workings of Lottery Society”

The lottery world has always been a strange place. Numbers are the dominant species, and clout is in the form of jackpot size. The larger your jackpot, the higher your status.

In this strange world, Lotto Texas has gained clout, and is determined to hold on to it. With the help of a rarely seen Pattern and a similar spread, this lottery cemented itself in high society. The jackpot climbed to $34.25 million.

Powerball’s jackpot rises and falls, like jackpots are wont to do. However, it could reassure itself that it was of a “better” stock than that Lotto Texas! Well, Powerball was able to continue its climb upward. With no grand prize winner, the jackpot there ascended to $29 million.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

August 19, 2020 saw the 63rd appearance of the {5-1} Pattern with winning numbers 20, 24, 29, 31, 33 and 51.

This Pattern has now played in 3.53% of the 1787 Lotto Texas drawings and was last seen March 28, 2020.

Now with 11 appearances, the 0 5 1 Specific Order has played in 17.5% of the 63 drawings where {5-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1787 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 0.62% of the time. Prior to Wednesday night, the 0 5 1 Specific Order was last seen March 25, 2017.

Similar Spread

The spreadfor August 19th was 04:05:02:02:18. On March 19, 2008, numbers 17, 35, 40, 42, 46 and 48 had a spread of 18:05:02:04:02. Differences between the numbers that played were the same, yet the orders in which they played on those nights were different. Now, some lotteries may gripe, saying this was a case of try-hard, but a similar spread was a touch of class. Who classier than Lotto Texas?

Four-Number Combinations

Of course, Lotto Texas wasn’t done. There were also two repeating Four-Number Combinations!

  • 20, 29, 31, 51 (Debuted January 5, 2008)

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball decided to go in the opposite direction and play a commonly seen Pattern, its most common Pattern, to be precise. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 194th appearance with 13, 23, 47, 55, 58 and PB 23.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Repeating Three-Number Combination 47, 55 and 58 debuted December 1, 2018.

While it is nice to be at the top, it would do Lotto Texas good to remember that the bigger they come, the harder they fall. It doesn’t take much effort for Powerball to rise to the $30 million+ range. Will Lotto Texas continue its time in the lottery high society, or will it feel the sting of a captured jackpot and the painful crash?

#LTX&PBKeepYourselvesAtHome

Saturday came and went, and would you believe that it was even quieter? The grand prizes in Lotto Texas and Powerball went unclaimed once more March 28, 2020, with jackpots rising to $10.25 million and $170 million, respectively.

Lotto Texas and Powerball will have the honor of ushering in April. Will they shower us with Pattern encores and other wild plays or take us for April fools?

Wednesday Night Streak Smashers

It’s a fact of life in the lottery world that some Patterns don’t get as much play as others. Sometimes, when those uncommon Patterns play, they leave a big impact.

This past Wednesday night saw the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak come to an end in Powerball. Likewise, the {3-2-1} Pattern streak of Lotto Texas was over before it could even start. All that was left were jackpots that rose to $60 million and $6.5 million, respectively.

Could either the {3-1-1-1} of Powerball or the {5-1} of Lotto Texas do the unbelievable and make an encore Saturday night?

The Playback Zone

Of the many lottery-related phenomena covered in Lottery Binge, the playback is quite the character. It shows up when the Pattern, General Order (not applicable to Lotto Texas), and Specific Order all played together on a previous date. The obvious one is the Australia Play, where the Pattern, General Order (again, not applicable to Lotto Texas), and Specific Order were the same, like the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order in Lotto Texas. What about the playbacks that aren’t so obvious?

All this week, there have been several posts on the playback. At least one was seen in Mega Millions recently and our last Lotto Texas post covered an Australia Play. The playback seen on April 13, 2019 brought one Lotto Texas winner $15.75 million. This knocked the prize down to $5 million going into Wednesday.

Powerball’s jackpot, meanwhile, rose quietly to $118 million.

Alright, Powerball wasn’t entirely quiet. As a playback happened in Lotto Texas, there were rumblings of a Pattern streak. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern went for the three-peat with winning numbers 4, 17, 26, 32, 49, and PB 10, bringing its number of appearances up to 134.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There don’t appear to be any “monstrous” jackpots going into next week. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern in Powerball is just as fond of Pattern streaks as the one in “sister” Mega Millions, so it’s something to keep an eye for. Will that Pattern streak solidify Wednesday night, or will another Pattern take the reins?

Three-Quarters In

Three-quarters.

That’s 75%.

March 23rd is roughly the three-quarter mark of the month. Perhaps it was fitting that the result of Saturday night’s Powerball drawing is a grand prize now worth $750 million. That’s three-quarters of a billion dollars!

Lotto Texas held on strong. With no grand prize winner, $12.25 million will be up for grabs Wednesday.

The only thing that’s certain going into next week is that there’s a crazy-large jackpot in Powerball. Wednesday could see that prize being won or the prize growing once again. That {2-2-1-1} Pattern is one of the most common. Will there be a three-peat?

The year is off to a quiet start for Lotto Texas and Powerball. Will Saturday night be a mellow one, or will there be a shakeup?

Lotto Texas and Powerball’s Attention-Grabbing Patterns

The biggest story of Lottery Binge this summer has been Mega Millions. This lottery’s grand prize has soared into the stratosphere and is close to half a billion, yes billion dollars! Even though Mega Millions has had the lion’s share of buzzworthy news, Lotto Texas and Powerball are not down for the count. After July 21st, Powerball is feeling the urge to rise, and its jackpot is now $147 million. Lotto Texas isn’t likely to see a prize that large anytime soon ($12.25 million ain’t too shabby), but it had its own way of generating buzz—throwing a rarely-played Pattern into the ring.
