Happy Cinco De Mayo!

Arriba! Hola again Lottery Trend amigos and Happy Cinco De Mayo! This is guest blogger, Romulun Harris, giving you the latest lottery updates! As we smashed the pinata, we got several surprises in the form of an Australian play in Lotto Texas and the ever frequently played {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern. There was also a mariachi band composed of a trio of repeats in Three Number Combinations in Powerball! And now the details.

Lotto Texas

Last night on May 4, 2019, the winning numbers for Lotto Texas were 10, 14, 22, 28, 40, and 44.

There were no repeating Four-Number combinations.

Meanwhile, Powerball’s winning numbers were 6, 16, 23, 30, 61, and PB 2.

Well, amigos, looks like this was a great fiesta for the lottery world. Until next time, this is guest blogger, Romulun Harris, signing off. Happy Cinco De Mayo!

Hopping Away to Crazy Millions

Easter has come and gone, and the Mega Millions jackpot grew once again. The jackpot eluded capture in the April 23rd, 2019 drawing. The fallout was a prize now standing at $212 million.

How’d Mega Millions get away? By exchanging the opportunity for a {2-2-1-1} three-peat with a hopping mad Australia Play, of course!

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 7, 24, 30, 48, 67, and MB 9, Mega Millions saw its twelfth Australia Play.

Of the 456 Mega Millions drawings, that means the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order, and 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order have played 2.63% of the time. It wasn’t that long ago when we last saw an Australia Play. In fact, it was just two weeks ago in the April 9th, 2019 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

An Australia Play was mad enough, it seems. There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

April is just about over, and Mega Millions has a couple more opportunities for tricks before heading into May. The weekend will most certainly kick off with a crazy-large jackpot, or something close to it. Question is, will the Australia Play make an encore or will a more common Pattern appear?

Saturday Leftovers and then Some

Leftovers don’t have to be cold and tasteless. Sometimes when they’re reheated and a little extra kick is added, they taste even better!

April 10th was a night much like this past Saturday’s. For one, the prizes for Lotto Texas and Powerball rose once more, now at $15.75 million and $101 million, respectively. Not only that, but both Patterns made an encore and one was part of a playback package!

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 10, 15, 23, 28, 42, and 43, there have now been 228 Australia Plays in Lotto Texas.

Of the 1645 drawings to date, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order have played 13.9% of the time. Last we saw an Australia Play (The Ultimate Playback), it was April 6th, 2019.

Four-Number Combinations

What’s an Australia Play encore without a repeating Four-Number Combination? The lone repeating Four-Number Combination was 10, 23, 28, and 42.

Powerball

Another repeater from April 6th, 2019 was the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern! The 133rd appearance of this Pattern was thanks to winning numbers 12, 21, 23, 39, 67, and PB 6.

This Pattern has played in 36.2% of the 367 Powerball drawings.

The [1-2-1-1-1] General Order, now with 35 appearances, has played in 26.3% of the 133 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 367 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 9.54% of the time. Prior to Wednesday night, the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order played February 27th, 2019.

Now with six appearances, the 1 2 1 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 17.1% of the 35 drawings where the General Order was [1-2-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 4.51% of the 133 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.63% of all 367 drawings. We last saw the 1 2 1 0 1 1 Specific Order October 10th, 2018.

Could the Australia Play start a Pattern streak in Lotto Texas? Will the jackpots in both lotteries continue to ascend?

Down Under with Mega Millions

Spring is in full swing and summer is right around the corner here in Lottery Trend Country. Naturally, things heated up for Mega Millions April 9th. Thinking it could avoid the pressures of high expectations, it jaunted off to the wondrous world of the Australia Play! Tuesday night saw this lottery deliver a powerful kick. Part of the aftermath was a $140 million grand prize for Friday. The rest, well, a blog post introduction isn’t enough to do it justice.

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 11, 22, 34, 44, 58 and MB 9, the 11th Australia Play was made possible.

Of the 452 Mega Millions drawings, that means the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order, and the 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order have played 2.43% of the time. An Australia Play was last seen September 25th, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Bundled within that Australia Play were five repeating Three-Number Combinations!

The Australia Play isn’t that common, let alone in Mega Millions, so a Friday night encore isn’t likely. This lottery loves repeating Three-Number Combinations, though, so whether there’s a parade of them remains to be seen. Inquiring minds want to know: Will the jackpot in Mega Millions continue to climb?

That Hidden Pattern Bond

If there’s one sage piece of our childhoods we should remember, it’s “Never judge a book by its cover.” Lotto Texas and Powerball are as opposite as you can get with lotteries. One is more inclined to have monster jackpots while the other takes a more “respectable” approach to the madness. Lotto Texas leapt upwards to $15 million and Powerball climbed to $84 million.

Our analysis showed that April 6th was a night that the lotteries had something else in common.

Lotto Texas

Given that there have been 366 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played 36.1% of the time. Like our dear Australia Play in Lotto Texas, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern was last seen March 27th, 2019.

The [1-1-1-2-1] General Order, now with 38 appearances, has played in roughly 28.8% of the 132 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in 10.4% of all 366 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order played January 12th, 2019.

Now with nine appearances, the 0 1 1 1 2 1 Specific Order has played in 23.7% of the 38 drawings where the General Order was [1-1-1-2-1]. This Specific Order has also played in roughly 6.82% of the 132 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 366 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 2.46% of the time. We last saw the 0 1 1 1 2 1 Specific Order in the August 29th, 2018 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Both lotteries appear to be bounding along to large jackpots. Going into Wednesday’s drawing, we’ll need to keep an eye out for a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore or at least one of those prizes growing once again. Could the Pattern playdates be joined at the hip once more?

Who Loves Playbacks?

The theme of the week so far is “Playback”. Yesterday, we covered the playback in Mega Millions. Lotto Texas and Powerball, not wanting to be left out, received some playback love March 20th. It’s thanks to these playbacks that the normally unassuming Lotto Texas is now flirting with a $11.75 million grand prize. Powerball’s jackpot beast remained unleashed, and now stands tall at $625 million!

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 14, 15, 26, 29, 40, and 42, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order have played 225 times.

Of the 1639 Lotto Texas drawings, an Australia Play has happened in 13.7% of them; one was last seen February 6th, 2019.

Considering that March 20th was the first day of autumn in Australia, perhaps it’s fitting that Lotto Texas saw such a play.

Four-Number Combinations

The lone repeating Four-Number Combination of the evening was 14, 15, 26, and 42.

Of the 361 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played roughly 28% of the time.

With 43 appearances, the [2-2-1-1] General Order has now played in 42.6% of the 101 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 11.9% of all 361 drawings.

Now with six appearances, the 2 0 0 2 1 1 Specific Order has played in roughly 14% of the 43 drawings where the General Order was [2-2-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 5.94% of the 101 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.66% of all 361 drawings.

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern, [2-2-1-1] General Order, and the 2 0 0 2 1 1 Specific Order were last seen March 9th, 2019.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball kept the momentum going with two repeating Three-Number Combinations!

  • 10, 53, PB 21 (Debuted June 17th, 2017)
  • 10, 50, PB 21 (Debuted March 16th, 2016)

Powerball maintains much of the momentum heading into Saturday and it’s possible that the jackpot will jump again. Lotto Texas shouldn’t be discounted, though; the prize there is a more “respectable” sort of juggernaut. Will the results of Saturday night lead to another jackpot climb, or will at least one prize be won?

For Pattern Streak Kicks

The theme of the evening for February 6th was “Pattern streak”. After an astounding six consecutive appearances, Lotto Texas’s {3-2-1} Pattern bowed out. Meanwhile, Powerball looked to be developing a streak with its {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern.

One commonality between the lotteries was the lack of a grand prize winner. Their respective prizes climbed to $6.75 million and $224 million.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 9, 11, 34, 35, 44, and 48, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 224th appearance. One could say an Australia Play hopped in the {3-2-1} Pattern’s place.

Given that there have been 1627 Lotto Texas drawings, an Australia Play has occurred in 13.8% of them. We last saw one around these parts in the December 12th, 2018 drawing.

This Pattern has played in 36.4% of the 349 Powerball drawings and was last seen on February 2nd, 2019. Recall that the streak started January 30th, 2019.

Speaking of January 30th, that was when the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order was last seen! With 35 appearances, this General Order has now played in 27.6% of the 127 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in roughly 10% of all 349 drawings.

Now with ten appearances, the 2 1 1 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 28.6% of the 35 drawings where the General Order was [2-1-1-1-1].

Three-Number Combination(s)

In addition to the Pattern three-peat, there were two repeating Three-Number Combinations:

The dynamic duo of Lotto Texas and Powerball retained their momentum and look to be taking it into Saturday night. Will the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak continue in Powerball and could Lotto Texas’s Australia Play go crazy and make an encore?

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!

Lotto Texas

As quiet as Wednesday night may have appeared, Powerball had the most momentum. The 24th-ever Australia Play was thanks to winning numbers 6, 19, 37, 49, 59, and PB 22!

Given the 341 Powerball drawings, the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order, and the 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order have all played 7.04% of the time. We last saw an Australia Play right after Christmas. More specifically, on December 26th, 2018.

Will the “quiet approach” continue Saturday night, or will Lotto Texas and Powerball be touched with weekend madness?

Gift of the Powerball

Lotto Texas and Powerball were like the Northern and Southern Hemispheres December 26th. They were polar opposites (no pun intended)! While it’s winter in New York City, it’s summertime in Sydney.

Speaking of New York City, Powerball gifted one player from Brooklyn with $298.4 million! That brought the jackpot down to a more “respectable” $40 million. Lotto Texas, ever the classy one, saw its jackpot ease on upward to $10 million.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The {3-2-1} Pattern was so well-loved that Lotto Texas asked for it to come back for an encore! With winning numbers 5, 26, 33, 40, 42, and 47, this Pattern has now played 848 times.

Of the 1615 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 52.5% of the time.

Now with 152 appearances, the 1 2 3 Specific Order has played in 17.9% of the 848 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern and in 9.41% of all 1615 drawings. We last saw this Specific Order on December 1st, 2018.

Four-Number Combination(s)

An encore wasn’t all the {3-2-1} brought with it; there were also two repeating Four-Number Combinations.

  • 5, 26, 40, 42 (Debuted October 30th, 2002)
  • 26, 33, 40, 47 (Debuted May 31st, 2017)
Encore comes with two repeating Combinations of the four-number kind. Source: lotterytrend.com.

Hard to believe that one of these Combinations debuted sixteen years ago, and to think that we’re on the cusp of a new year! Time keeps on slipping, as they say.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Would you believe that it was an Australia Play that gifted the sole Powerball winner? The winning numbers were 5, 25, 38, 52, 67, and PB 24.

Given the nature of the Australia Play, that means the {1-1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order, and 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order have played 23 times. With there being 337 Powerball drawings, the Australia Play has appeared in 6.82% of them. Prior to Wednesday night, the Australia Play was seen August 8th, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Hopping alongside the Australia Play was lone repeating Three-Number Combination 25, 52, and 67.

The last lottery drawing of the year is this Saturday. Will the year end with a Pattern streak in Lotto Texas or perhaps someone becoming $10 million richer?
