Spreading Out and Rising Up

Lottery-wise, Wednesday nights are crowded. Rather than one lottery, two are vying for attention and adoration of players far and wide. Even as people are caught up in the allure of becoming an (almost) overnight millionaire, there’s an organized madness behind the scenes. Lotto Texas and Powerball, from their quietest nights to their biggest blowouts, embrace it willingly. A cold Wednesday night in mid-November is just as good as any.

November 16, 2022 was the night for “organized madness”. One lottery embraced the wonders of a similar spread while the other flirted with a repeating Combination that played twice before. Regardless of the path that was taken, both Lotto Texas and Powerball’s respective jackpots grew to $15.25 million and $93 million.

This Pattern has now played in 10.5% of the 2086 Lotto Texas drawings and was last seen October 31, 2022.

Now with 43 appearances, the 0 4 2 Specific Order has played in 19.6% of the 219 drawings where {4-2} was the winning Pattern. Once all 2086 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 2.06% of the time. Prior to Wednesday night, the 0 4 2 Specific Order played June 8, 2022.

Similar Spread

Lotto Texas figured a bigger impression with the {4-2} Pattern could be made with a similar spread. Wednesday night’s numbers saw a spread of 02:04:06:05:01. The March 10, 2010 drawing featured winning numbers 36, 42, 47, 48, 52 and 54 with a spread of 06:05:01:04:02. Remember that with similar spreads, the differences between numbers played are the same but their orders (and the numbers played) are different.

The Jackpot Express Reaches the End of the Line

Greetings, Lotterytrend fans! Romulun Harris here. Last night, on November 7, 2022, after traveling along the rails for over the past quarter year, Powerball’s Jackpot Express finally reached the end of the line when its jackpot worth around a record-breaking $2 billion—yes, $2 billion! —had finally been won by someone in the Golden State on the West Coast. To whoever that winner is, I wish him good luck. While Powerball’s jackpot reset itself back to $20 million, Lotto Texas’s jackpot increased to $13.25 million—and has been gaining momentum since September 21, 2022. And now, the details.

LOTTO TEXAS

Wow! That was some incredible journey for Powerball. I can’t imagine how much its jackpot would’ve been if this had gone on all year long! All I can say is, probably a heck of a lot.

Increasing Jackpots and Fallouts

Greetings Lotterytrend fans! Romulun Harris here. October 19, 2022 was when more leaves started falling. One of those leaves was Powerball’s jackpot increasing up to $550 million. And there were even more surprises in those falling leaves, especially with Lotto Texas. And now, the details.

LOTTO TEXAS

Some of those falling leaves were in the form of Lotto Texas winning numbers 7, 14, 16, 21, 44, and 45. This resulted in the frequently played {3-2-1} Pattern making its 1094th appearance.

September’s Seismic Shift

Great changes came about in the lottery world Saturday night. Lotto Texas, lest it start to think too highly of itself, was knocked back down to earth. Naturally, the jackpot reset to $5 million. The greatest shift was in Powerball. Out of the madness of an Australia Play came a similar spread, an entourage of repeating Three-Number Combinations, and a jackpot that grew to $238 million.

Lotto Texas

September 17, 2022 was the night of the {3-2-1} Pattern, with winning numbers 5, 9, 18, 22, 35 and 48. This Pattern has now played 1087 times.

There have now been 2060 Lotto Texas drawings, and the {3-2-1} Pattern has been featured 52.8% of the time. This Pattern was last seen September 7, 2022.

Four-Number Combinations

Having been forced to reset the jackpot left Lotto Texas in no mood for repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and Powerball decided to take a cue from Lotto Texas with an Australia Play of its own. Thanks to 5, 25, 36, 51, 61 and PB 1, 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 made their 48th appearance.

An Australia Play has been featured in 6.14% of the 782 Powerball drawings and was last seen August 22, 2022.

Similar Spread

“Grand” best described September 17th’s Australia Play, and what better demonstration than a similar spread? Saturday night’s numbers had a spread of 20:11:15:10. Similarly, the September 2, 2017 drawing had a spread of 15:20:11:10. That night, the winning numbers were 6, 21, 41, 52, 62 and PB 26. Although the differences between numbers were the same, the orders in which the numbers played, and the numbers themselves, were different.

Saturday Night Spread and a Dose of Playback

As one lottery flirts with the possibility of a billion-dollar jackpot, two lotteries proved they were just as worthy of attention. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw a shakeup Saturday night. Lotto Texas, ever graceful, took a chance with an uncommon Pattern. The payoff was a jackpot that grew to $8 million. On the Powerball side, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak came to an end and with it, a jackpot that grew to $130 million.

Lotto Texas

The July 23, 2022 Lotto Texas drawing featured the 165th appearance of the {3-3} Pattern with winning numbers 6, 7, 14, 20, 26 and 31.

The winning numbers were 24, 29, 30, 36, 42 and 49. Even though the differences between numbers were the same, note that their orders (and of course, the numbers that played) were different.

Four-Number Combinations

Lotto Texas continued its break from repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak came to an end thanks to the {2-2-1-1} Pattern. With winning numbers 39, 41, 54, 59, 62 and PB 12, this Pattern made its 219th appearance!

Summer Spread & Summer Streak

Whether the summers really are getting longer and hotter or it’s just you, air conditioning is a blessing. All you need to do is turn down the thermostat, plop on the couch, and let the cool air blow. That is, unless the air conditioner breaks down and you’re dripping in sweat. You may then be tempted to take off some or even all your clothes and walk around just to feel a breeze. Thankfully, lotteries don’t engage in that kind of streak. Interestingly, things get hotter in the lottery world whenever there’s a streak. A Pattern streak, that is!

July 16, 2022 was the night that Powerball’s {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern got into streak mode. Entering “streak mode” unleashed a bombardment of repeating Three-Number Combinations and helped push the jackpot to a robust $89 million. Meanwhile, Lotto Texas took to a different approach. Ever the classy one, this lottery switched out Patterns, which pushed the jackpot to $7.25 million.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Instead of a {3-3} Pattern encore, Lotto Texas opted for the {4-1-1} Pattern instead. This Pattern’s 222nd appearance was made possible by 15, 19, 42, 48, 49 and 50.

Similar Spread

As classy as Lotto Texas was, that didn’t prevent this lottery from spreading out! Saturday night’s numbers had a spread of 04:23:06:01:01. If we go back to the August 26, 2009 drawing, the numbers that played that night – 14, 15, 16, 22, 26 and 49 – had a spread of 01:01:06:04:23.

The Pattern Done Lost its Grip

Well, folks, it had to come to an end sooner or later. Since May 4th, the {3-2-1} Pattern reigned in Lotto Texas, and on Saturday night, it got pushed aside for another Pattern. Even though the Pattern changed, one element did stay consistent: the rising jackpot. In the end, the Lotto Texas jackpot grew to $16 million.

Earlier in the week, the {3-2-1} Pattern paid Powerball a visit as well. This Pattern isn’t as common there as it is in Lotto Texas, so the lack of an encore wasn’t that surprising. In its place was Powerball’s most played Pattern and a jackpot that grew to $125 million.

Similar Spread

Not feeling content with a playback (Remember: All Australia Plays are playbacks, but not all playbacks are Australia Plays), Lotto Texas decided to throw in a similar spread! Saturday night’s numbers had a spread of 01:05:03:13:08. If we look further back, June 2, 2012 saw a spread of 01:08:13:03:05, thanks to 2, 3, 11, 24, 27 and 32. Notice how even though the differences between numbers were the same, their orders were different.

The Spread is Strong with These Two

“May the fourth be with you.”

You probably hear this at least once every May 4th. For those out of the loop, May 4th is the unofficial holiday known as Star Wars Day. Sure, this series can be celebrated any day, but if you think about it, May 4th is fitting!

While “Star Wars” fans got their geek on, Lotto Texas and Powerball were engaged in a battle in a galaxy not so far away. May 4, 2022 was a night of similar spreads, a Pattern encore, and rising jackpots. Lotto Texas ascended to $12.5 million, and Powerball propelled itself to $51 million.

That night, the winning numbers were 2, 9, 14, 22, 35 and 36, and their spread was 07:05:08:13:01. The differences between the numbers played on both nights may have been the same, but their orders were different.

Lotto Texas and Powerball March Into April

March 30, 2022 fell on a Wednesday, which meant the last drawings of the month for both Lotto Texas and Powerball. One thing for certain was that neither lottery ended the month quietly! A playback here, a similar spread there, among other things, not only gave these lotteries a power boost, but their jackpots received a boost as well! Lotto Texas gracefully rose to $7.75 million, and Powerball’s jackpot strolled upward and onward to $222 million.

Similar Spread

As if an uncommon Pattern making a mid-week appearance wasn’t enough, how about a similar spread to spice things up even more? Wednesday night’s numbers had a spread of 02:19:07:01:05. Similarly, the October 23, 2013 drawing had a spread of 01:05:19:02:07, thanks to 12, 13, 18, 37, 39 and 46. Looking closely, we can see that even though the differences between numbers both nights were the same, their orders (and the numbers played) were different.
