The World According to Lotto Texas (and Powerball)

Lotto Texas dominated the lottery landscape August 28th, 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?

August Sweeps

August isn’t so boring after all. For Lotto Texas especially, it’s been one hell of a ride! Nothing could bring it down and the aftermath was a jackpot that leapt upwards to $17.25 million.

Now, Lotto Texas wasn’t the only one wild and out August 21st, 2019. Powerball gained the courage to do something quite daring. This risk paid off for it, as players failed to pick all six winning numbers. The prize climbed to $50 million as a result.

Both the {3-2-1} Pattern and the 1 3 2 Specific Order were last seen in the August 10th, 2019 drawing.

Similar Spread(s)

A playback wasn’t all Lotto Texas had in its arsenal. It had not one but two similar spreads! That’s two times where the differences in numbers were the same but the orders were different. The spread for Wednesday night’s numbers was 10:01:07:12:04. Let’s see when the others were.

The first spread happened November 26th, 2014. The winning numbers were 14, 21, 31, 35, 36, and 48 and the spread was 07:10:04:01:12.

The second spread happened in the September 8th, 2018 drawing. The winning numbers were 14, 21, 33, 43, 47, and 48 and the spread was 07:12:10:04:01.

Looks like neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball could wait until the weekend to unleash the fireworks! Speaking of, will this level of madness show up again Saturday night, or will they take a breather?

For the Love of Spread

This August has been anything but boring in the lottery world. Sometime during the summer, Lotto Texas developed a love of shenanigans. This normally peaceful lottery has partaken in a love of similar spreads and playbacks. It even let the {3-3} Pattern have a taste of “the encores”! The shenanigans continued August 10th, 2019 with more similar spread action and a prize that climbed to $15.75 million.

In a surprising turn of events, Powerball has taken the role of the chaste lottery. Even so, it too has kept players at bay. The prize grew to $138 million.

Similar Spread

Would you believe that this is the second drawing in a row that a similar spread showed up? Saturday night’s spread was 01:08:09:12:04. On April 13th, 2013, the winning numbers were 4, 13, 14, 18, 26, and 38; their spread was 09:01:04:08:12. Whether similar spreads are spread out or a back-to-back occurrence, the differences between numbers can be the same, but their orders are different.

In spite of the madness, there were no repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Will there be more fun with similar spreads next week, or Pattern encores? Could Lotto Texas and/or Powerball do something even more unexpected?

The Playback Blowtorch

It was a scorcher Wednesday night, and we don’t just mean a heat wave! August 7th, 2019 was the night both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw a playback. Additionally, one of these lotteries was also neck-deep in encores. The intensity of this blowtorch kept players away from the grand prizes. These rose to $15.25 million for Lotto Texas and $128 million for Powerball.

Would you believe that both the {3-3} Pattern and the 3 3 0 Specific Order came back for an encore? They were last seen together August 3rd, 2019. How often do you see an encore double as a playback?

Similar Spread

Lotto Texas, normally the “quiet one”, has had an interesting summer. Just one week ago, we saw a similar spread. Wednesday night gave us another one; the spread was 02:13:06:09:04. This time around, its spread was similar to the one seen November 19th, 2016. The spread for that night was 04:02:13:06:09 and the winning numbers were 15, 19, 21, 34, 40, and 49. Remember: although the differences between numbers are the same in both these drawings, the orders are different.

July is over. It’s still too hot to do much of anything except swim (or bake) and there’s only two weeks* until school starts. Time keeps on slippin’, as they say!

*Length of time may be different, depending on where you are.

Now, July 31st, 2019 didn’t rock the boat too much. Save for a similar spread, it was a quiet night. Neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball saw a grand prize winner, and their jackpots rose to $14.5 million and $102 million, respectively.

Three-peats and Terrors

Monsters of the “number-y” kind were unleashed upon the world May 22nd, 2019. Powerball’s beast of a jackpot expanded to $308 million, probably inspired by sister Mega Millions. Lotto Texas, ever respectable, sprouted upward to $6.25 million. That ever respectable lottery was responsible for a few terrors of its own.

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations. The madness in Lotto Texas was enough for both lotteries.

Will a {3-2-1} Pattern streak solidify and could the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern see an encore Saturday night? Both Patterns love making repeat appearances!

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!

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!

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.

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?

From the Ashes

March 6th was Ash Wednesday. For practicing Catholics, it was the first day of Lent, a time of fasting, prayer, and repentance. For everyone else, it marked another Mardi Gras come and gone. Regardless of what you practice, Wednesday was a reserved night for Lotto Texas and Powerball.

Except for the similar spread in Lotto Texas and the rampaging beast of a jackpot in Powerball. With no one to claim the grand prize for either lottery, their respective grand prizes are now a cool $9.25 million and a staggering $414 million.

Other than those, quiet night. Totally.

Similar Spread

Before we continue, a little refresher. A similar spread occurs when the difference between the numbers in two drawings are the same, but orders of said numbers are different.

Wednesday’s night spread was 07:09:03:07:09. This spread was similar to the one  seen on March 7th, 2018. That night, the spread was 07:09:07:09:03 and the winning numbers were 9, 16, 25, 32, 41, and 44. Can you believe that these similar spreads appeared 52 weeks apart?

Four-Number Combinations

Repeating Four-Number Combinations took a backseat. The {3-2-1} Pattern thought having a similar spread was enough showing off for one night.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 129th appearance with winning numbers 6, 10, 21, 35, 46, and PB 23.

Given that there have been 357 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played 36.1% of the time and was last seen February 27th, 2019.

The [2-1-1-1-1] General Order made its 36th appearance and has now played in 27.9% of the 129 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 357 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 10.1% of the time. Prior to Wednesday night, the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order played February 6th, 2019.

Now with nine appearances, the 2 1 1 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in 25% of the 36 drawings where the General Order was [2-1-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 6.98% of the 129 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 2.52% of all 357 drawings. We last saw the 2 1 1 1 0 1 Specific Order on January 30th, 2019.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

With no Pattern streaks in either lottery, there could be either a Pattern encore or something completely unexpected. We’re also looking at a beast of a jackpot for Powerball heading into Saturday’s drawing. Will someone catch the beast, or will it evade capture?

Going Big(ger) (or Lotto Texas & Powerball in “Jackpot Happy”)

October is an active month, indeed. Football season is in full swing, post-season baseball games are taking place (Will the ‘stros make it to the World Series again?), not to mention Halloween being right around the corner. If you also read the Mega Millions blog posts, then you know about the monster lurking about there. Now, I don’t mean to alarm you, but another monster was spotted October 13th. The grand prize for Powerball shot up to $345 million! Lotto Texas may be the “runt” with its $11.75 million jackpot, but it had the most impactful attacks of the evening.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The {3-2-1} Pattern was loved so much after showing up October 10th that it was invited back. This encore, and the 835th appearance of the Pattern, was thanks to winning numbers 14, 19, 30, 42, 47, and 51.

Of the 1594 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 52.4% of the time.

Now with 149 appearances, the 1 2 3 Specific Order has played in 17.8% of the 835 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern and in 9.35% of all 1594 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, this Specific Order played on September 15th, 2018.

Similar Spread

Lotto Texas went straight for the jugular with a similar spread. The spread for Saturday night was 05:11:12:05:04, which was similar to what was seen on October 4th, 2006. That night, the winning numbers were 1, 13, 18, 22, 27, and 38, with a spread of 12:05:04:05:11. Notice that although the differences between numbers were the same, the orders were different.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Of course, what accents the impact of a Pattern encore more than a repeating Four-Number Combination? The Combination of the evening was 14, 30, 47, and 51, which made its debut in the February 20th, 2013 drawing.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball took a note from the Lotto Texas playbook and played its most commonly seen Pattern again. Except here, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made a three-peat. With winning numbers 11, 14, 32, 43, 65, and PB 15, this Pattern made its 113th appearance.

Of the 316 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played in 35.8% of them.

The [2-1-1-1-1] General Order made its 30th appearance and has now played in 26.5% of the 113 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in 9.49% of all 316 drawings and was last seen on August 4th, 2018.

Now with five appearances, the 2 0 1 1 1 1 Specific Order has played in 16.667% of the 30 drawings where the General Order was [2-1-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also appeared in 4.42% of the 113 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. When taking all 316 drawings into consideration, the 2 0 1 1 1 1 Specific Order has played 1.58% of the time. This Specific Order was last seen in the earlier-mentioned August 4th, 2018 drawing alongside the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations. Powerball felt that the Pattern encore, and the crazy-large jackpot, were enough damage.

As the daytime hours wane, and the days (hopefully) continue to get cooler, the grand prizes continue to reach monumental heights. Will either the {2-1-1-1-1} or {3-2-1} Patterns make another repeat appearance Wednesday night and could one of those repeats allow at least one person to obtain a monstrous jackpot?

The Great and Powerful Pattern

What can be said about September 15th? Other than it being the halfway mark in September, it’s not that big of a deal, is it? After all, there’s nothing that great about the grand prizes for Lotto Texas and Powerball going up to $7.5 million and $163 million, is there? Nothing that great about the {3-2-1} Pattern playing seven times in a r–.

Who are we kidding!? Saturday night was a mighty big deal and not just because the jackpots rose! It was in Lotto Texas, the “small fry” of the Big Three lotteries, that a Pattern played seven times in a row. Not even the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, King of Mega Millions, has ever performed such a feat!

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The record-breaking “seven-peat” featured winning numbers 2, 21, 24, 41, 46, and 52. This brings the number of times the {3-2-1} Pattern has played up to 830.

Of the 1586 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 52.3% of the time. Recall that we last saw this Pattern on September 12th, 2018.

Now with 148 appearances, the 1 2 3 Specific Order has played in 17.8% of the 830 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. When taking all 1586 drawings into consideration, this Specific Order has played 9.33% of the time. Prior to Saturday night, the 1 2 3 Specific Order played on September 8th, 2018. How interesting it would’ve been if a playback occurred!

Similar Spread

Instead, another level of awesomeness was applied when a similar spread showed up. The spread for Saturday night’s numbers was 19:03:17:05:06. This is similar to the spread seen on September 25th, 2010. That night, the winning numbers were 1, 7, 26, 43, 46, and 51 and the spread was 06:19:17:03:05. Note how the numbers in the spreads are the same, but the orders are different.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Of course, Lotto Texas couldn’t have just a {3-2-1} Pattern “seven-peat” or a similar spread. There had to be a repeating Four-Number Combination thrown into the mix, too!

And what of Powerball? Was it struck with a touch of Pattern Streak Fever?

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball’s contribution to the “awesome sauce” pot was the repeating Three-Number Combination 2, 18, and 19.

This Combination made its debut in the March 4th, 2017 drawing.

It can be said without a doubt that September 15th was one of, if not the biggest night Lottery Binge has covered. Lotto Texas has developed a love affair with the {3-2-1} Pattern and we’ll need to keep an eye on whether the record-breaking streak continues, or there’s a break-up. Powerball hasn’t seen an encore in a while. Could a {3-1-1-1} Pattern encore show up Wednesday night?
