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.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The {3-2-1} Pattern went for the three-peat with winning numbers 2, 9, 23, 37, 42, and 50. This Pattern has now played 872 times.

Three cheers for the three-peat! Source: lotterytrend.com.

Of the 1657 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 52.6% of the time. Recall that the {3-2-1} Pattern was last seen May 18th, 2019.

Now with 121 drawings, the 2 1 3 Specific Order has played in 13.9% of the 872 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1657 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 7.30% of the time. Prior to Wednesday night, the 2 1 3 Specific Order played January 16th, 2019.

Similar Spread

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. The spreadfor Wednesday night’s numbers was 07:14:14:05:08. This was similar to the spread seen on February 23rd, 2008. That night, the winning numbers were 2, 7, 21, 35, 43, and 50; the spread was 05:14:14:08:07.

Four-Number Combination(s)

With a three-peat and a similar spread, you’d think Lotto Texas would have its fill. There was enough room for three repeating Four-Number Combinations!

  • 2, 23, 37, 50 (Debuted May 11th, 2013)

Of the 379 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played in 37.2% of them and was last seen May 15th, 2019.

The [2-1-1-1-1] General Order, now with 38 appearances, has played in roughly 27% of the 141 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in roughly 10% of all 379 drawings. Prior to Wednesday night, the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order played March 27th, 2019.

Now with seven appearances, the 2 1 0 1 1 1 Specific Order has played in 18.4% of the 38 drawings where the General Order was [2-1-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 4.96% of the 141 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.85% of all 379 drawings. The 2 1 0 1 1 1 Specific Order was last seen November 17th, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

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!

Lotto Texas

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

There’s always more to the numbers. Source: lotterytrend.com.

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.

Shoring up the rear. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com

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.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 8, 15, 24, 27, 34, and 43, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its 863rd appearance.

Of the 1635 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has now played 52.8% of the time and was last seen February 23rd, 2019.

Now with 140 appearances, the 2 3 1 Specific Order has played in 16.2% of the 863 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also played in 8.56% of all 1635 drawings. Prior to Wednesday night, the 2 3 1 Specific Order played January 12th, 2019.

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.

A Pattern encore is just one attack. Source: lotterytrend.com.

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.

Propelling Powerball sky high. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

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.

The six numbers that shattered a record. Source: lotterytrend.com.

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?

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball remained immune to streak fever, but it had a strong night. With winning numbers 2, 18, 19, 24, 34, and PB 3, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 60th appearance.

Of the 308 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played in 19.5% of them, and was last seen on June 23rd, 2018.

The [1-3-1-1] General Order made its 17th appearance and has now played in 28.3% of the 60 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. When taking all 308 drawings into consideration, this General Order has played 5.52% of the time. Prior to Saturday night, the [1-3-1-1] General Order played on February 7th, 2018.

Now with three appearances, the 1 3 1 0 0 1 Specific Order has played in 17.6% of the 17 drawings where the General Order was [1-3-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 5% of the 60 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.97% of all 308 drawings. The 1 3 1 0 0 1 Specific Order was last seen on July 30th, 2016.

Three-Number Combination(s)

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

Top the heap. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

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?

The Five Voyages of a Common Pattern

Pattern streak fever was present in Mega Millions this past Friday, and it spread to Lotto Texas on September 8th. The Lottery World was set on fire Saturday night with a five-peat and other things so wild they can’t be talked about in an introduction! The only other thing we can say is that the grand prizes rose for both Lotto Texas and Powerball. The respective prizes are now $6 million and $132 million.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 14, 21, 33, 43, 47, and 48, the {3-2-1} Pattern went on to play for the fifth time in a row! This Pattern has now played 828 times.

Of the 1584 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played 52.3% of the time. September 5th was when we last saw the {3-2-1} Pattern.

Now with 147 appearances, the 1 2 3 Specific Order has played in 17.8% of the 828 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern, and in 9.28% of all 1584 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, the 1 2 3 Specific Order played on June 2nd, 2018.

Similar Spread

The key thing to remember about a similar spread is that this happens when the numbers in the spreads are the same, but the orders are different. The spread for Saturday night was 07:12:10:04:01. This is similar to the spread that was seen on November 26th, 2014. That night, the winning numbers were 14, 21, 31, 35, 36, and 48 and the spread was 07:10:04:01:12.

Lotto Texas developed a fondness for similar spreads last month, even seeing them happen back-to-back. Could another similar spread appear Wednesday night?

Four-Number Combination(s)

Believe it or not, there were no repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Although Lotto Texas dominated this past Saturday, Powerball still had a respectable showing and had its own surprises!

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 92nd appearance with winning numbers 3, 13, 20 32, 33, and PB 21.

Of the 306 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played in 30.1% of them, and was last seen on September 1st, 2018.

The [2-1-2-1] General Order has played 28 times and has now appeared in 30.4% of the 92 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has played in 9.15% of all 306 drawings, and previously played on August 25th, 2018.

Now with five appearances, the 2 1 2 0 0 1 Specific Order has played in 17.9% of the 28 drawings where the General Order was [2-1-2-1]. This Specific Order has also appeared in 5.43% of the 92 drawings where the winning Pattern was {2-2-1-1}. When taking all 306 drawings into consideration, this Specific Order has played 1.63% of the time. The 2 1 2 0 0 1 Specific Order was last seen on March 22nd, 2017.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball may not have seen a Pattern encore, but there were two repeating Three-Number Combinations:

The big things to look out for Wednesday night are similar spreads and Pattern streaks. Will the {3-2-1} Pattern streak continue in Lotto Texas, and could either lottery see a similar spread?

Everything’s Better with Similarities

There’s a very good chance that Lotto Texas and Powerball casted off the August Doldrums for good! August 25th had strong showings for both lotteries. Not only did their respective grand prizes rise to $6 million and $80 million, there were some similarities to what we saw last time.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 3, 10, 23, 32, 36, and 48, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its 824th appearance.

Of the 1580 Lotto Texas drawings, this Pattern has played in 52.2% of them, and was last seen on August 11th, 2018.

Now with 134 appearances, the 2 3 1 Specific Order has played in 16.3% of the 824 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This statistic becomes 8.48% when taking all 1580 drawings into consideration. Prior to Saturday night, the 2 3 1 Specific Order played in the July 14th, 2018 drawing.

Similar Spread

A similar spread happened for the second drawing in a row! If you recall our last post, this phenomenon happens when the numbers in the spreads are the same, but the orders are different. Saturday night had a spread of 07:13:09:04:12. This is similar to the one that occurred on May 13th, 2015. That night, the winning numbers were 2, 15, 22, 31, 43, and 47, with a spread of 13:07:09:12:04.

This the first time in Lottery Binge history that a similar spread occurred in either lottery back-to-back.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Once again, Lotto Texas saw a repeating Four-Number Combination! This time, the Combination was 3, 23, 32, and 36.

This Combination debuted in the August 5th, 2000 drawing. That was eighteen years ago!

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball liked the {2-2-1-1} Pattern so much that it was brought back for an encore. This time, the winning numbers were 20, 25, 54, 57, 63, and PB 8.

A Pattern encore is just as nice. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Given that there have been 302 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played 29.8% of the time.

The [2-1-2-1] General Order made its 27th appearance and has now played in 30% of the 90 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in 8.94% of all 302 drawings. The [2-1-2-1] General Order was last seen in the June 6th, 2018 drawing.

Now with three appearances, the 0 2 0 1 2 1 Specific Order played in 11.1% of the 27 drawings where the General Order was [2-1-2-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 3.33% of the 90 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern. When taking all 302 drawings into consideration, this Specific Order has played 0.99% of the time. The 0 2 0 1 2 1 Specific Order previously played on August 30th, 2017.

The lone repeating Three-Number Combination, 54, 57, and PB 8, made its debut in the October 25th, 2017 drawing.

Could the unthinkable happen in Wednesday’s drawing with a third-consecutive similar spread? Could Powerball’s {2-2-1-1} Pattern go for the three-peat?

Doldrums-B-Gone

The jackpots for Lotto Texas and Powerball inched upwards once more. Their respective jackpots are now $5.75 million and $70 million. But that’s not the focus of today’s post. Not really.

Let it be known that the night of August 22nd was the night when Lotto Texas and Powerball joined forces and cast off the yoke of the “August Doldrums”! How was this achieved? Well, the introduction alone can’t do justice to what happened.

Prior to Wednesday night, both the {4-1-1} Pattern and the 1 1 4 Specific Order previously played on August 15th, 2018. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we had ourselves a playback!

And there was more. So much more.

Similar Spread

Lotto Texas also saw a similar spread. This happens when the numbers in the spreads are the same, but the orders are different. The spread for Wednesday night was 14:12:01:13:02. This is similar to the one that occurred on June 4th, 2008. That night, the winning numbers were 4, 6, 18, 19, 32, and 46, with a spread of 02:12:01:13:14.

Four-Number Combination(s)

The repeating Four-Number Combination of the evening was 11, 25, 37, and 38.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Lotto Texas may have been the strongest party Wednesday night, but Powerball’s results were nothing to sneeze at, either. With winning numbers 1, 7, 45, 47, 69, and PB 13, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 89th appearance.

Given that there have been 301 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played 29.6% of the time. Like the {4-1-1} Pattern seen in Lotto Texas, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern played in the earlier-mentioned August 15th drawing.

The [2-2-1-1] General Order made its 36th appearance and has now played in 40.4% of the 89 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has also played in roughly 12% of all 301 drawings. Prior to Wednesday night, this General Order played in the July 28th, 2018 drawing.

Now with three appearances, the 2 0 0 2 1 1 Specific Order has played in 8.33% of the 36 drawings where the General Order was [2-2-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 3.37% of the 89 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern. When looking at all 301 drawings, this Specific Order has played 1% of the time. The 2 0 0 2 1 1 Specific Order previously played on July 7th, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball didn’t see any repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball be able to keep the August Doldrums away on Saturday?

The Wednesday Night Thaw

To start today’s post, here are a couple of facts about Australia:

  1. It’s the only country that’s also a continent.
  2. It’s one of the warmest spots on the planet right now.

Seeing how it’s almost summer down there, it’s fitting that an Australia Play was seen on December 13th. Biggest play of the night, in fact. The appearance of the most commonly seen Pattern, an encore at that, was a big play, don’t get us wrong. It’s just that more happened in the lottery that saw the Australia Play.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Lotto Texas had the honor of hosting the Australia Play for the 204th time! Wednesday’s winning numbers were 12, 14, 19, 34, 39, and 47.

Now with there being 1507 Lotto Texas drawings, both the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order have played 13.5% of the time. An Australia Play was last seen November 29th, 2017.

Similar Spread

This Australia Play saw a spread of 02:05:15:05:08, which was like the spread on May 8th, 2010. That night, the spread was 02:08:15:05:05, and the winning numbers were 12, 14, 22, 37, 42, 47. What makes this a similar spread is that even though the numbers in the spreads are the same, their orders are different. Yes, even if three of the six numbers drawn are shared between the drawings.

Four-Number Combination(s)

The Australia Play continued to go big with two repeating Four-Number Combinations:

  • 12, 19, 34, 47 (Debuted December 31st, 2008)
  • 12, 14, 19, 34 (Debuted July 18th, 2001)

And it likes to go big. Source: lotterytrend.com.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

By process of elimination, it was Powerball that saw the Pattern encore. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, King of the Powerball Patterns, saw its 83rd appearance with 2, 24, 28, 51, 58, and PB 7.

An encore is nothing to sneeze at. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Out of the 229 Powerball drawings, this Pattern has played in 36.2% of them.

The [1-2-1-1-1] General Order made its 23rd appearance, and was seen alongside the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern in this past Saturday’s drawing. This has now played in 27.7% of the 83 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. When taking all 229 drawings into account, this General Order has played about 10% of the time.

Now with four appearances, the 1 2 0 1 1 1 Specific Order has played 17.4% of the time. This Specific Order has also played in 4.82% of the 83 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.75% of all 229 drawings. Prior to Wednesday night, the 1 2 0 1 1 1 Specific Order had played in the April 15th, 2017 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

The Pattern encore was the only big play for Powerball. There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will Saturday’s drawing lead to either an Australia Play encore or a {2-1-1-1-1} three-peat?

A Playback and a Spread

The word “Uneventful” does not describe the night of December 2nd. This was the night of the playback, and the similar spread. Which lottery saw which event?

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 12, 15, 17, 31, 38, and 47, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its 781st appearance.

This Pattern has played in 51.9% of the 1504 Lotto Texas drawings, and was last seen November 25th, 2017.

Now with 145 appearances, the 3 1 2 Specific Order has played in 18.6% of the 781 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has now played in 9.64% of all 1504 drawings. And, it was seen alongside the {3-2-1} Pattern in the November 25th drawing.

Because the {3-2-1} Pattern and the 3 1 2 Specific Order were seen together in a previous drawing, we here at Lottery Binge call this a playback.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Lotto Texas thought the playback was enough. There were no repeating Four-Number Combinations.

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

The {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 43rd appearance, with winning numbers 28, 30, 32, 36, 58, and PB 6.

These numbers ruled the night. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

Given that there have been 226 Powerball drawings so far, this Pattern has played about 19% of the time. It was last seen in the November 15th, 2017 drawing.

The [1-3-1-1] General Order has now played 14 times, and has thus appeared in 32.6% of the 43 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order has played 6.19% of the time when looking at all 226 drawings. Prior to Saturday, this General Order played in the September 23rd, 2017 drawing.

Now with four appearances, the 0 1 3 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 28.6% of the 14 drawings where the [1-3-1-1] General Order appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 9.30% of the 43 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} pattern appeared. Finally, when looking at all 226 Powerball drawings, the 0 1 3 0 1 1 Specific Order has played 1.77% of the time. We last saw this Specific Order in the May 24th, 2017 drawing.

Similar Spread

It just so happens that Powerball also saw a similar spread. The spread was shared with the numbers in the February 18th, 2017 drawing. That night, the winning numbers were 3, 7, 9, 31, 33, and PB 20. The spread was 04:02:22:02. The spread for Saturday’s numbers was 02:02:04:22. Remember that with similar spreads, the numbers in the spreads are the same, but their orders are different.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There was also one lone repeating Three-Number Combination: 32, 36, and 58.

Not even six months and it shows up again. Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com.

It wasn’t that long ago that this Combination made its debut. More specifically, it was the June 24th, 2017 drawing.

Will either Pattern make an encore presentation in Wednesday’s drawing? Will there be more similar spreads?
