Exactly What It Spreads

Lottery Binge has been gracing the Internet for almost three years. We’ve covered playbacks, Pattern streaks, monster-sized jackpots, similar spreads, and so much more. You can rarely go wrong expecting at least one of the lotteries to see a rise in their jackpots. For instance, Lotto Texas and Powerball will be going into Saturday night with $5.25 million and $136 million, respectively. There just isn’t anything new to cover. Just variations of what we’ve seen before, right?

Wrong!

April 17th, 2019 was a night like no other. For the first time ever, we’re covering a little something called

THE EXACT SPREAD!

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The {4-2} Pattern made its 178th appearance with winning numbers 7, 8, 15, 17, 29, and 30.

Of the 1647 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 10.8% of the time, and was last seen March 13th, 2019.

Now with 38 appearances, the 4 2 0 Specific Order has played in 21.3% of the 178 drawings where {4-2} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1647 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 2.31% of the time. Prior to Wednesday night, the 4 2 0 Specific Order played March 9th, 2019.

Exact Spread

It was Lotto Texas. Yes, the (often) reserved Lotto Texas that saw the exact spread.

Now, you’ve all heard of the similar spread. For those who haven’t, or need a refresher, a similar spread is what happens when the difference between the numbers in two drawings are the same, but orders of said numbers are different. With an exact spread, both the differences between the numbers in two drawings and the orders of said numbers are the same!

Wednesday night’s numbers had a spread of 01:07:02:12:01.

On April 21st, 2012, the winning numbers were 23, 24, 31, 33, 45, and 46. The spread that night was 01:07:02:12:01. To think that it was almost seven years ago!

Four-Number Combination(s)

There were also two repeating Four-Number Combinations:

  • 7, 17, 29, 30 (Debuted November 12th, 2011)
  • 7, 15, 17, 29 (Debuted April 16th, 2014)

Lotto Texas may never see its jackpot rise to the heights seen in Powerball, but it more than makes up for it with its own wild plays. Speaking of Powerball, a Pattern streak is under way.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 1, 15, 17, 46, 66, and PB 15, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern went on to make its fourth consecutive appearance.

Given the 369 Powerball drawings so far, this Pattern has played 36.6% of the time.

The [1-2-1-1-1] General Order appeared to be in the early stages of streak! With its three-peat, this General Order has now played 37 times. Of the 135 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern, this General Order has played 27.4% of the time and in roughly 10% of all 369 drawings.

Both the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern and the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order were last seen April 13th, 2019.

Now with seven appearances, the 1 2 0 1 1 1 Specific Order has played in 18.9% of the 37 drawings where the General Order was [1-2-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 5.19% of the 135 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in roughly 1.90% of all 369 drawings. We last saw the 1 2 0 1 1 1 Specific Order February 2nd, 2019.

Imagine if Powerball had seen a playback! It seems the lottery gods thought that would’ve been too much for mere mortals.  

Three-Number Combination(s)

Of course, who needs a playback when there’s at least one repeating Three-Number Combination, right? The lone Combination, 15, 66, and PB 15, made its debut August 26th, 2017.

A holiday weekend is coming up, so it’s possible that Powerball’s Pattern streak may hold. Of course, it could also slip away. Still, there are decent-sized jackpots up for grabs Saturday night.

(C’mon. You wouldn’t turn your nose up at $5.25 million!)

Will Saturday night be hopping mad, or will everything stew in silence?

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 13th 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.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 1, 4, 10, 14, 15, and 26, the {5-1} Pattern made its 60th appearance.

A rare Pattern packs a big punch! Source: lotterytrend.com.

Given the 1646 Lotto Texas drawings to date, this uncommonly seen Pattern has played 3.65% of the time.

Now with ten appearances, the 5 1 0 Specific Order has played in roughly 16.667% of the 60 drawings where {5-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1646 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 0.61% of the time.

Both the {5-1} Pattern and the 5 1 0 Specific Order were last seen March 23rd, 2019.

Four-Number Combinations

The lone repeating Four-Number Combination, 1, 10, 14, and 15, debuted in the September 5th, 2001 drawing.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

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.

A Pattern streak in the works? Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Of the 368 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played 36.4% of the time.

Not only did the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern make a third consecutive appearance, the [1-2-1-1-1] made an encore as well! With its 36th appearance, this General Order has played in 26.9% of the 134 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 9.78% of all 368 drawings.

Both the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern and the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order were last seen April 10th, 2019.

Now with four appearances, the 1 2 1 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in 11.1% of the 36 drawings where the General Order was [1-2-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 2.99% of the 134 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.09% of all 368 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, the 1 2 1 1 0 1 Specific Order played August 5th, 2017.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Along for the ride were two repeating Three-Number Combinations:

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?

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!

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

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

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

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

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 1, 8, 20, 35, 51, and 52, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 227th appearance!

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.

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)

A dynamic duo. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

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?

For April, a Pattern Encore

The momentum was strong with Lotto Texas and Powerball April 3rd. There weren’t any jackpots in “crazy-rich” territory (think $100 million+) but they were robust! Lotto Texas played hard to get; with no grand prize winner, it’ll be going into Saturday with $14.5 million. Powerball settled down with a $68 million prize, for it too couldn’t claim a jackpot winner.

Now for the big question: Who saw the encore?

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 3, 17, 21, 23, 36, and 51, the {3-2-1} Pattern came back for an encore! This Pattern has now played 866 times.

Will April be a month of soaring jackpots and Pattern streaks?

End of Month Lottery Ruckus

With the end of March comes the end of the first quarter of 2019. Now, the month may be over, but neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball are going into April quietly!

There were no Pattern streaks, let alone encores, and with the monster jackpot already won, it’s tempting to let our guards down. But lotteries care not for mortal feelings! The results from March 30th were good for those who enjoy robust jackpots. With no grand prize winners in either Lotto Texas or Powerball, their respective prizes are now $13.5 million and $54 million.

Lotto Texas

Will April shower us with Pattern streaks and large jackpots, or will the second quarter of 2019 start off with something more low-key?

Kangaroos and Cheese

Such an odd name for a Lottery Binge post, but what happened on March 27th, 2019 was odd. In a good way.

Lotto Texas continued its frolic through “double digit millions” country. Thanks to an Australia Play, it hopped towards a $12.75 million jackpot.

Along the way, the $768.4 million (formerly $750 million) prize in Powerball got kicked over, and a Wisconsinite walked away with the golden ticket! Powerball has since settled down to $40 million.

For the curious: a bit on Wisconsin cheese.

Three-Number Combination(s)

As if a jackpot worth more than three-quarters of a billion dollars weren’t enough, there was a lone repeating Three-Number Combination!

Bottom of the table, yet a leader. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

With the crazy-large Powerball jackpot claimed, it appears that March may go out like a lamb. Still, $40 million is nothing to sneeze at, and Lotto Texas is going strong. We’ll have to wait until Saturday’s drawing to see if either Pattern makes an encore.

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.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Even though it doesn’t have a beastly jackpot, Lotto Texas made waves with the rarely-seen {5-1} Pattern. With winning numbers 1, 2, 3, 6, 8, 18, and 24, this Pattern made its 59th appearance.

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?  

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

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.

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?

Jackpot Madness: Spring Fever Edition

The calendar says “Winter”, but Lotto Texas and Powerball are ready for spring! March 16th saw a warm-up in the Lottery World, although “warm-up” may be a bit of an understatement. With no grand prize winners, Powerball’s jackpot officially went past the half-billion-dollar mark. More specifically, we’re looking at least $550 million going into Wednesday night! Lotto Texas had a touch of the “Jackpot Fever”, with a prize now at $11 million. Although not nearly as monstrous as Powerball, that’s plenty robust.

This Wednesday marks the official start of spring. Powerball’s prize is currently $550 million, but there’s a good chance it’ll climb again before the actual playdate. This is something to keep an eye on. On a lighter note, will either the {3-2-1} or {3-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore?
