The Reigning Combination Affliction

Last time we saw our dear friends Lotto Texas and Powerball, there were mutterings of a conspiracy amongst them. Both lotteries took it upon themselves to bombard everyone with repeating Combinations aplenty. Based off what happened April 30, 2022, the word “conspiracy” caught one lottery off-guard. In contrast to earlier in the week, this lottery took it down a notch. Meanwhile, the other lottery didn’t care a whit, further delving into the madness. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their respective jackpots climb to $11.25 million and $27 million.

As Lotto Texas and Powerball make way for May, will Lotto Texas continue to embrace the way of the repeating Five-Number Combination?

Lotto Texas and Powerball’s Grand Combination Conspiracy

Lotto Texas and Powerball did something nuts last Wednesday. While the former lottery took a break from repeating Four-Number Combinations, the latter took that ball and ran with it! Jackpots climbed and methodical madness ensued. Then, things eased up a bit that weekend, but that serenity didn’t last. Lotto Texas maintained some composure, but Powerball went crazy with the repeating Three-Number Combinations. Surely a midweek drawing would mean a quieter night, right?

Well, folks, the madness continued April 27, 2022. This time, Lotto Texas also took a walk on the wild side, bringing forward a repeating Five-Number Combination and the associated aftermath. Once the dust settled, a jackpot worth $10.75 million was left standing. Powerball went crazy with the repeating Three-Number Combinations again, and all it had to show for it was a jackpot that reset to $20 million. At least Powerball gave a player in Arizona 473 million reasons to be happy!

Lotto Texas and Powerball Do a Flip

Lotto Texas and Powerball couldn’t be any more different! Why, just a few posts ago, we talked about Lotto Texas’s grace and poise and how audacity was Powerball’s raison d’etre. What we forgot to mention was that their personalities flip once in a while.

Most recently, that personality swap took place on February 9, 2022. Lotto Texas was the one who decided to throw grace to the wind for a change and use the power of a repeating Five-Number Combination to boost its jackpot to a respectable $9.25 million. Powerball borrowed the grace Lotto Texas casted aside and quietly used an Australia Play encore to grow the jackpot to $172 million.

Will Powerball’s Pattern streak continue to the end of the month?

The World According to Lotto Texas (and Powerball)

Lotto Texas dominated the lottery landscape August 28, 2019. The winless streak continued as the prize climbed to $18.25 million. What made this lottery stand out Wednesday night was that it had

  • An encore
  • A playback
  • A similar spread
  • A repeating Five-Number Combination
  • Seven repeating Four-Number Combinations

Seriously, it was like Lotto Texas had this checklist of “Awesome Ways to End the Month” and had a field day!

Powerball had its own brand of insanity. A Specific Order debut and a couple of  repeating Three-Number Combinations may seem like small potatoes, but that was enough to propel the grand prize to $70 million.

Lotto Texas and Powerball will have the joint honor of playing the last day of August. Will the lead-up to September be just as wild as Wednesday, or will the month end on a quieter note?

Lottery Summer Block Party

For the past couple of drawings, both Lotto Texas and Powerball took it easy with the wild plays and crazy jackpots. Summer is about relaxing, after all. But summer is also a time of boldness, and that’s what we saw June 22, 2019.

The first Saturday of summer saw Lotto Texas, usually the humble one, rule the night! This lottery’s boldness kept players on their toes and ultimately prevented anyone from winning the grand prize. The jackpot rose to $8.25 million as a result. Even though Lotto Texas dominated, Powerball didn’t slack off. Thanks to its own tricks, the jackpot over there rose to $122 million!

Five-Number Combination

The {3-2-1} Pattern was determined to return bigger and badder than before. This was achieved by the power of a repeating Five-Number Combination!

This Pattern has played in 2.58% of the 388 Powerball drawings and was last seen February 20, 2019.

The [4-1-1] General Order, now with five appearances, has played in 50% of the 10 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 388 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 1.29% of the time. The [4-1-1] General Order was last seen February 9, 2019.

Powerball’s contribution to the block party was the debut of the 4 0 0 0 1 1 Specific Order! With that said, this Specific Order has now played in 20% of the five drawings where the General Order was [4-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 10% of the 10 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.26% of all 388 drawings.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Three-Number Combinations didn’t show up at the party.

A repeating Five-Number Combination is a tough act to follow! Not much can top it save maybe a Pattern streak or a crazy large jackpot. The crazy large jackpot is more Powerball’s territory, but the {3-2-1} Pattern in Lotto Texas might be able to squeeze out a streak to end the month. Although, one must wonder if another repeating Five-Number Combination will show up next week, or if this was one of those “Snow in Florida” kind of things.
