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.

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.

Four-Number Combination(s)

And what’s an Australia Play without a repeating Four-Number Combination? The Combination of the evening was 9, 11, 35, and 44.

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]. This Specific Order has also played in 7.87% of the 127 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 2.87% of all 349 drawings. Prior to Wednesday night, the 2 1 1 0 1 1 Specific Order played December 12th, 2018.

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!

Powerball

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?

October is right around the corner and there has yet to be a grand prize winner for either Lotto Texas or Powerball. Likewise, neither lottery is starting the month with a Pattern streak. Will either lottery see an encore, or even see a grand prize winner, in Wednesday’s drawing?

 

Megamillions Gets It Too!

Like I said before, it’s not often that we see a Four-Number Combination repeat a short while after its debut.

 

Powerball

Everybody Loves Australia (Plays)

Who doesn’t love Australia, right? What with the surfing, the wildlife, the weather…

But seriously. August 8th was a night like no other. In fact, something so wild, so crazy happened that we can’t talk about it in this paragraph. All we can tell you right now is that the jackpots for Lotto Texas and Powerball rose to a respective $16 million and $245 million.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 12, 16, 28, 29, 46, and 54, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 220th appearance.

Powerball

Powerball also got struck with Australia Play fever! The winning numbers were 10, 21, 30, 43, 63, and PB 17.

With those six numbers, 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 22 times. Given the 297 Powerball drawings, the Australia Play has played 7.41% of the time.

Here’s the kicker. Both Australia Plays were previously seen on July 25th, 2018!

Three-Number Combination(s)

The lone repeating Three-Number Combination, 10, 43, and 63, made its debut in the October 19th, 2016 drawing.

Could another first take place Saturday night with both Australia Plays making an encore?

 

The Australia Play Double Feature

Someone became at least $522 million richer after the July 24th, 2018 Mega Millions drawing. Any lottery that had a drawing the next night would have its work cut out for it. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball rose to the occasion July 25th. Not only did their jackpots rise to $13 million and $168 million, respectively, they both saw an Australia Play! To learn more about what an Australia Play is, click here. Although the post covered Lotto Texas, the same principle applies to Powerball and Mega Millions.

Lotto Texas

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations Wednesday night.

Will either Australia Play do the “unthinkable” and go for an encore Saturday night? Will other Patterns be the ones to end July?

Sucker Punch Combinations & A Pattern Encore

June ended with a bang. With no grand prize winners in either Lotto Texas or Powerball, the jackpots are now $8.25 million and $70 million, respectively. Other noteworthy events were the end of the (brief) {3-2-1} Pattern streak in Lotto Texas and possibly the start of one in Powerball.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Although the {3-2-1} Pattern didn’t see a “four-peat”, there was something else that might have rivaled it: an Australia Play! That is, the Pattern and the Specific Order were the same. Furthermore, the Specific Order is unique to said Pattern.

With winning numbers 5, 8, 29, 32, 40, and 48, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 218th appearance.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Lotto Texas may have had the lion’s share of the action, but Powerball had its own plans. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance with winning numbers 3, 9, 20, 42, 61, and PB 24.

100 appearances later, it reigns among Powerball Patterns. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Not only was this an encore, this marked the 100th appearance of the Pattern. With that said, there have been 286 Powerball drawings to date, and this Pattern has played in roughly 35% of them. Recall that the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern previously played this past Wednesday.

The [2-1-1-1-1] General Order, with 27 appearances, has now played in 27% of the 100 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in 9.44% of all 286 drawings. We last saw the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order on June 2nd, 2018.

Now with eight appearances, the 2 1 1 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 29.6% of the 27 drawings where the General Order was [2-1-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 8% of the 100 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern, and in roughly 2.86% of all 286 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, the 2 1 1 0 1 1 Specific Order played on March 21st, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

For those of you reading from the U.S., Wednesday is the Fourth of July. Will Lotto Texas and Powerball go all-out with encores and crazy (repeating) Combination action or will another surprise be in store?
