Drawings of Olympian Proportions

The time has come once more. In a few days, the Summer Olympics will be broadcasted live from Tokyo. As we humans find ourselves embroiled in controversy concerning the games, Lotto Texas and Powerball engaged in something scandalous themselves. July 17, 2021 was a night abound with mass outpourings of repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations. One even had enough room for a similar spread! To add on to the spectacle, the jackpots rose to $8 million and $161 million, respectively.

The Spreading Power of Jackpots

Special thanks to guest blogger Romulun Harris for filling in on Saturday!

The Mega Millions jackpot was the talk of the lottery world. For three months, that oak tree was nurtured by specific Patterns and the frustration of determined players. That frustration came to an end this past Friday when a Pennsylvanian player cut the mighty tree down.

As one tree fell, two others stood tall. May 22, 2021 was a busy night for Lotto Texas and Powerball. A Pattern three-peat and a similar spread were two stand-out developments. These fed into the jackpots rising once again. Lotto Texas jumped to $17.5 million, and Powerball expanded to $236 million.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

Lotto Texas fell in love with the number 2, in a way. The 200th appearance of the {4-2} Pattern was made possible by winning numbers 4, 12, 25, 30, 31 and 33.

Similar Spread

The 200th appearance of an uncommonly seen Pattern was a momentous occurrence after all. Perhaps it was fitting to throw in a similar spread as well! Saturday night’s spread was 08:13:05:01:02. This spread is similar to the one featured in the September 19, 2001 drawing. The winning numbers for that night were 8, 13, 15, 28, 29 and 37 with a spread of 05:02:13:01:08. Remember: the differences between numbers are the same, though not so for the order of the numbers.

The Mega Millions Springtime Spread

The phrase that best defined the night of April 20, 2021 for Mega Millions was, “Onward and Upward”. This lottery decided not to hang out with either the {2-1-1-1-1} or {3-2-1} Patterns, as it had been of late. As it went looking for another Pattern to pal around with, a similar spread got picked up along the way. That, and the jackpot rose to $277 million.

Double the Pattern, Double the Beatdown

Something interesting took place January 23, 2021. Lotto Texas and Powerball were in tandem with each other. See, they both played the same Pattern.

Lottery Party Mix: 2020 Edition

Chex Party Mix is one of many Christmastime snacks. For those unfamiliar with Chex, it’s a cereal from the U.S. Like Rice Krispies, it appears to be more popular as the key ingredient of a snack rather than part of a complete breakfast.

Now, a party mix wouldn’t be a mix without other goodies, would it? Chex can be mixed with all sorts of things, like pretzels, marshmallows, peanuts. It’s your choice what goes into the mix!

Lotto Texas and Powerball made their own party mix December 19, 2020. One lottery saw a Pattern three-peat, and another saw a similar spread. Throw in repeating Three and Four-Number Combinations and well sir, you got yourself a lottery party mix! To make it sweeter, both Lotto Texas and Powerball received a boost in their jackpots. The respective prizes increased to $6.5 million and $321 million.

The Powerball jackpot continues soaring to great heights, and the drawing before Christmas looks to be one for the ages. Question is, will it be the jackpots growing once more, or someone winning a coveted prize?

The Ghost of October 21st

What’s Christmas without at least one reference to A Christmas Carol? Whether you’ve seen the various adaptations or read it, you know about the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Believe it or not, this perennial Christmas classic is tied to today’s post.

Lotteries are constantly visited by the past; that’s part of their nature, and what makes Lottery Trend possible. What made December 5, 2020 interesting was the prominence of the number 21. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball were visited (haunted?) by the ghost of October 21. The visitation generated a boost to both their jackpots! Lotto Texas rose to $5.5 million and Powerball’s prize climbed to $262 million.

No repeating Three-Number Combinations for Powerball this time.

Will next week be one where Pattern streaks and similar spreads dominate, or will the lotteries have other plans?

Some Things are Not Worth Repeating

It finally happened. After 8.5 months, Lotto Texas was brought down. Oh, don’t feel sorry for Lotto Texas; it had to happen sooner or later. Although both the {3-3} Pattern and the 3 3 0 Specific Order were a hit last time, they brought about the crash of September 30, 2020 and made a lone player from Seguin much richer. Mega Millions and Powerball hugged and high-fived each other, happy that the “uppity little lottery” was put back in its place. The prize was reset to $5 million.

Amidst the chaos, Powerball held strong. With the help of an Australia Play, its position in lottery high society was maintained. The jackpot increased to $41 million.

Now with 45 appearances, the 3 3 0 Specific Order has played in 31.5% of the 143 drawings where {3-3} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1799 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 2.50% of the time.

Both the {3-3} Pattern and the 3 3 0 Specific Order were last seen September 26, 2020.

Similar Spread

What about a similar spread? That should’ve been enough to keep Lotto Texas in the good graces of lottery high society, right? No. No it wasn’t.

The spread for this past Wednesday night’s numbers was 07:05:03:08:03. This was similar to the spread from the November 1, 2000 drawing. That night, the winning numbers were 27, 30, 35, 38, 45 and 43, with the spread being 03:05:03:07:08. Different numbers played both nights but notice that the differences between numbers were the same, although in different orders.

Four-Number Combinations

A trio of repeating Four-Number Combinations were a part of the scene, one of which played twice before:

  • 4, 11, 19, 27 (Debuted March 15, 2017)
  • 4, 16, 19, 30 (Debuted March 29, 2014)
  • 4, 11, 16, 27 (Debuted October 20, 2012 and previously played December 19, 2015)

Fine showings all around, but they just weren’t enough.

Given that there have been 521 drawings, 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 have played 5.37% of the time. We last saw them in the May 9, 2020 drawing.

Three-Number Combinations

There was also room for two repeating Three-Number Combinations!

With Lotto Texas out of the way, Powerball can now focus on other things, like, “How long will it take to have a monster-sized jackpot?” It may a while yet but to Powerball, the natural order has been restored and all is right with the world.

As for Lotto Texas? Well, it had a taste of the high life, and it’s not going to let this setback get in the way! But we must get through Saturday’s drawing first. It isn’t likely that the {3-3} Pattern will make a three-peat, but it is 2020, after all. We’ll need to keep an eye on it!

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.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

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)

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

Powerball also decided to play one of its rarer Patterns. With winning numbers 15, 21, 22, 27, 47 and PB 7, the {4-1-1} Pattern made its 15th appearance.

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.

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?
