The Proud, the Stubborn

September 26, 2020 featured strong showings from both Lotto Texas and Powerball. Having been on top for the past 1.5 weeks, Lotto Texas wasn’t ready to give that up! The players were thwarted once again, and the jackpot hit $47 million.

Meanwhile, Powerball also saw a jackpot boost. The prize jumped from $25 million to $34 million, closing the gap between the two lotteries.

This Pattern has now played in 7.90% of the 1798 Lotto Texas drawings and was last seen August 5, 2020.

Now with 44 appearances, the 3 3 0 Specific Order has played in 31% of the 142 drawings where {3-3} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1798 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 2.45% of the time. Prior to Saturday night, the 3 3 0 Specific Order played August 7, 2019.

Four-Number Combinations

Lotto Texas was so content that repeating Four-Number Combinations weren’t necessary.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball’s jackpot boost got a little help from a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak! With winning numbers 11, 21, 27, 36, 62 and PB 24, this Pattern played for the fourth time in a row. Saturday night also marked the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern’s 200th appearance.

There have now been 520 Powerball drawings, and this Pattern has played 38.5% of the time. Recall that the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern was last seen September 23, 2020.

The [1-2-1-1-1] General Order, now with 50 appearances, has played in 25% of the 200 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 520 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 20% of the time. The [1-2-1-1-1] General Order was last seen August 29, 2020.

Now with 11 appearances, the 1 2 1 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 22% of the 50 drawings where the General Order was [1-2-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 5.5% of the 200 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 2.12% of all 520 drawings. We last saw the 1 2 1 0 1 1 Specific Order in the March 7, 2020 drawing.

Three-Number Combinations

 A trio of repeating Three-Number Combinations also came to Powerball’s aid:

Given the current rate things are going, it won’t be much longer before Powerball has the largest jackpot. Lotto Texas will either have to start seeing larger jackpot increases or will have to get reacquainted to not being top dog. Will Powerball’s dream come true soon?

A Reset Deferred

It’s been exactly one week since the Powerball jackpot was won. Since that time, Powerball continues to pick up the pieces, and Lotto Texas remains on top. The prize in that lottery is now worth $45.5 million. The natural order hasn’t been restored in Powerball’s mind. No way that Lotto Texas stayed on top! What’s a “disgraced” lottery to do?

A {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat was part of Powerball’s arsenal, though that wasn’t enough to soothe the fevered desire to be back on top. Even with a volley of repeating Three-Number Combinations, the jackpot rose just a bit, from $22 million to $25 million. Patience, dear Powerball. Patience.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The gulf between the Lotto Texas and Powerball jackpots was as expansive as the Outback. With winning numbers 10, 11, 22, 32, 45 and 54, the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order gave the jackpot a leap forward. An Australia Play has occurred 244 times.

Will Powerball’s wish for Lotto Texas to be knocked from the top come true Saturday night, or will the lottery from down south hold strong?

At the Top and Twice as Much

Lotto Texas was in a world of its own. Powerball was forced to reset, and Lotto Texas was now on top. And, after what happened September 19, 2020, it extended its stay until at least the next drawing. The players failed once more to match all six numbers. Rather than go all out, a sliver of that old-time Lotto Texas respectability shone through. The jackpot rose to “just” $44 million.

Powerball began the task of rebuilding its clout. Things got off to a nice start, for players there failed to match all the numbers as well. In fact, $22 million isn’t a bad prize. Although, it was a reminder to Powerball that Lotto Texas had a jackpot now worth twice as much. A bitter pill to swallow for a lottery notorious for monster-sized jackpots, to be sure.

Three-Number Combinations

A couple of repeating Three-Number Combinations got caught up in the shuffle:

Neither Mega Millions nor Powerball are strangers to being the ones on top, but for Lotto Texas, it’s a wondrous, yet terrifying experience. Staying on top can either be long-lasting, or short-lived. And, Lotto Texas hasn’t forgotten that when the time comes for its reset, the climb back to the top will be much harder and much longer. Will it be able to hold off the reset for at least another drawing?

The Uppity Lottery

Mega Millions lost some of its clout this past Tuesday night, and one lottery endured the same fate. Lotto Texas, known for being meek and respectable, became more confident as 2020 rolled on. Some would say that the lil ol’ lottery from down South got uppity. Well, if you were expecting the return of respectable Lotto Texas…it did not return. On September 16, 2020, that “uppity” lottery had its jackpot rise to $42.75 million!

What happened to Powerball? Well, Powerball got knocked in the head by an Empire (State) apple and when it woke up, had only $20 million remaining. At least Mega Millions gained a grumbling partner.

Both the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order and the 1 1 1 2 0 1 Specific Order were last seen August 1, 2020.

Three-Number Combinations

Powerball’s bruised ego didn’t allow for repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Lotto Texas reigns supreme but deep down, it knows this moment won’t last forever. Mega Millions and Powerball will relish the day when the “uppity” lottery is put back in its place. Will Saturday night give Lotto Texas more time at the top?

Jackpots Ride Again!

Salutations again, Lotterytrend fans! This is guest blogger Romulun Harris, filling in for Freyja Harris, and giving you the latest updates in Lotto Texas and Powerball.

The Ongoing Class Struggle of Lottery Society

Eight months, or close to it. That’s how long it’s been since someone claimed the grand prize in Lotto Texas. A lot sure has happened in eight months. One thing that didn’t change September 9, 2020 was, believe or not, the state of Lotto Texas. Having found itself, it firmly planted roots and continued to grow its jackpot. With no one picking the six numbers, the prize climbed to $40.5 million.

Powerball chuckled. Sure, Lotto Texas’s jackpot grew, but its jackpot did as well. With a jackpot that ascended to $85 million, the gap between the lotteries widened.

General Lottery Analysis

Lotto Texas took a great leap with another Australia Play! With winning numbers 5, 11, 21, 35, 40 and 48, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order have played 243 times.

Powerball is closer to $100 million and Lotto Texas is on a jackpot high! Will life for these lotteries continue to be roses and bourbon Saturday night, or will the party end for at least one of them?

The Grand Combination Explosion

When lotteries get into lofty positions, they’re (usually) not willing to give them up easily. Lotto Texas has had a taste of the lottery high life. What with its jackpot closer to $40 million than it ever has been in a very long time, it’s has no plans to go down so easily! And even though Powerball is no stranger to being in such a comfortable spot, it too must put up the occasional fight to prove its worth.

When you come for lotteries, you best not miss.

Except, everyone missed September 5, 2020. Both lotteries had the insane idea of lobbing at least one repeating Four-Number Combination. Lotto Texas also threw in a similar spread for good measure. Sure, the country club hall is a mess, but Lotto Texas was pleased as punch upon reaching $39 million. Powerball was content with $75 million and thought there was no way that “uppity” Lotto Texas could catch up.

The uncommonly seen {4-2} Pattern made its 194th appearance, with winning numbers 4, 9, 16, 17, 20 and 35.

This Pattern has now played in 10.8% of the 1792 Lotto Texas drawings and was last seen August 15, 2020.

Now with 43 appearances, the 4 2 0 Specific Order has played in 22.2% of the 194 drawings where {4-2} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1792 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 2.40% of the time. Prior to Saturday night, the 4 2 0 Specific Order played June 6, 2020.

Similar Spread

Saturday night’s numbers had a spread of 05:07:01:03:15. March 18, 2017 had a spread similar to this. That night, the winning numbers were 12, 15, 16, 23, 38 and 43, and their spread was 03:01:07:15:05. Different numbers played both nights but notice that the differences between numbers were the same, although in different orders. A fine specimen of a similar spread, wouldn’t you say?

Four-Number Combinations

Four repeating Four-Number Combinations were invited to the party:

  • 4, 9, 17, 35 (Debuted November 29, 2008)
  • 9, 16, 20, 35 (Debuted March 24, 2001)

This Pattern has now played in 2.92% of the 514 Powerball drawings and was last seen May 27, 2020.

The [4-1-1] General Order, now with seven appearances, has played in 46.7% of the 15 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 514 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has also played 1.36% of the time. The [4-1-1] General Order was last seen November 13, 2019.

Now with a grand total of two appearances, the 0 4 0 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in 28.6% of the seven drawings where the General Order was [4-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 13.3% of the 15 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.39% of all 514 drawings. The 0 4 0 1 0 1 Specific Order made its first appearance in the May 16, 2018 drawing.

Four-Number Combination

Powerball’s contribution to the repeating Four-Number Combination pot was 21, 27, 47, and PB 7.

This Combination debuted in the July 11, 2018 drawing.

Three-Number Combinations

Of course, that repeating Four-Number Combination had four repeating Three-Number Combinations as part of its entourage:

  • 21, 27, 47
  • 21. 27, PB 7
  • 27, 47, PB 7
  • 21, 47, PB 7

The top three Combinations made their debut in the July 11th drawing mentioned earlier. Although the last Combination in the group played on that date (naturally), its debut was January 27, 2018.

But, wait! There’s one more Combination: 15, 22 and 27 debuted June 24, 2020.

Blue and red abound! Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com

As the days grow shorter, the jackpots grow larger. Lotto Texas isn’t going to go down without a fight, and Powerball is content with the gap between them. Of course, if Powerball isn’t careful, it may find itself looking at Lotto Texas from behind. On the other hand, fate may deal Lotto Texas a bad hand, leaving Powerball to gloat as the “uppity” little lottery from down South has to start all over again at $5 million. What awaits these lotteries in the week ahead?

Lottery Euphoria

September 2, 2020 was a win for lottery high society.

The euphoria was strong in Lotto Texas. So strong, in fact, that it didn’t notice the mob of players on the country club grounds, just itching to take it down. Their efforts failed, and the winnings climbed to $37.5 million. Ah well, they thought. Let’s try for Powerball.

Except, the mob had been escorted off the premises before they could go for Powerball. As it, too, saw no grand prize winners, the jackpot rose to $66 million.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The mob got a swift kick to the pants with an Australia Play. With winning numbers 7, 13, 26, 32, 46 and 54, the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 242nd appearance together.

The Greatest Flattery

In a chaotic world that appears to be growing ever more chaotic, humans evolved a little something they like to call “escapism”. Something to make them forget about the pain, suffering, and needless tedium in their lives. Let’s delve into a little bit of that escapism and look at the continuing strife between Lotto Texas and Powerball. In the case of the former, nothing else mattered in its quest to remain in the good graces of lottery high society.

The night of August 29, 2020 saw these lotteries imitate one another. Not only did they both play their most commonly seen Patterns, these were encores! Lotto Texas was rewarded with a jackpot that rose to $36.75 million, and Powerball rose to $56 million.

Still, the question remains: Who imitated whom?

Lotto Texas

The {3-2-1} Pattern encore was made possible with winning numbers 7, 18, 22, 33, 35 and 39. This Pattern has now played 950 times.

Now with 159 appearances, the 2 3 1 Specific Order has played in 16.8% of the 950 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also played in 8.88% of the 1790 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, the 2 3 1 Specific Order played August 1, 2020.

As it is in the human world, it’s difficult to attain clout. What took months to achieve a dream for Lotto Texas can easily be undone in the next drawing. And Powerball, though it always had a “higher” starting position, isn’t immune, either. Will both lotteries continue their climb at the start of September, or will at least one of them fall?

Concerning Patterns and Groups

As I went through my email last night, I came upon this message:

What does the 2 2 1 1, 2 1 2 1 and 4-2 patterns mean? Like what does the number mean? Do you have a blog about that?

Those are good questions and there is a blog post now!

The numbers in Patterns like {4-2} represent how many numbers come from a Group. The {4-2} Pattern is exclusive to Lotto Texas, so let’s start there. Lotto Texas has three Groups:

  • Group 1 is 1 – 18
  • Group 2 is 19 – 36
  • Group 3 is 37 – 54

The {4-2} Pattern is made up of numbers from two Groups. For example, we can have four numbers from Group 1, and two from Group 3. A more in-depth explanation of Lotto Texas Groups and Patterns can be found here and here.

A similar logic applies to Mega Millions and Powerball. Both are made up of six Groups, though it’s broken down a little differently. Mega Millions is like this:

  • Group 1 is 1 – 14
  • Group 2 is 15 – 28
  • Group 3 is 29 – 42
  • Group 4 is 43 – 56
  • Group 5 is 57 – 70
  • Group 6 is MB (Mega Ball) 1- 25

Powerball’s Grouping is like Mega Millions’ until we get to Group 5. In Powerball, Group 5 goes from 57 to 69 and Group 6 is PB (Powerball) 1 to PB 26.

Let’s look at the {2-2-1-1} Pattern. We can, for example, have two numbers from Group 1, two from Group 4, one from Group 5, and one from Group 6 (Mega Ball or Powerball, depending on lottery). Note that with Mega Millions and Powerball, the last group is always Group 6. The main Mega Millions and Powerball sites break it down visually on their Groups and Patterns pages.
