Lotteries of Solitude

After the madness we saw this past Wednesday, Lotto Texas and Powerball earned a well-deserved rest. On June 15th, they said “No!” to wild plays and Pattern streaks. Save for a Pattern encore and prizes that respectively rose to $8 million and $92 million, Saturday night was one of the quietest we’ve had in a while.

Powerball liked the {3-1-1-1} Pattern so much that it was asked to come back! This Pattern made its 79th appearance with winning numbers 8, 11, 14, 16, 49, and PB 14.

Was Saturday night a prelude for how the rest of the month will be or is it the calm before the storm? There is another half of June left in play, after all!

Night of the Living “3”

June 12th, 2019 was taken over by the number 3! The little guy made himself at home in both Lotto Texas and Powerball, whether by showing up alone, as part of another number, or by other means. Means that were tied to a Combination, perhaps?

The invasion left both lotteries without a grand prize winner. Their respective jackpots rose to $7.75 million and $79 million.

Seems like Powerball loved “3” a little bit more than Lotto Texas! There was enough love to go around, and both lotteries got a healthy dose. Will either lottery continue its fascination with “3” on Saturday or will another number catch their attention?

Lotto Texas and Powerball Flee the Heat

You know it’s summer, or close to it, when it’s so hot outside you need to lower the car windows to let all the heat escape! When it’s that hot, the best remedies tend to be a dip in the pool, grabbing a snow cone or two, or staying put, giving glory to the wonders of air conditioning.

June 8th was so hot that Lotto Texas and Powerball didn’t exert themselves much. However, “taking it easy” did not mean “lazy” with these two! Both lotteries played their most-common Patterns. This “safe” play sent the grand prizes to $7.5 million and $66 million, respectively.

Both the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order and the 2 0 1 1 1 1 Specific Order were last seen May 25th, 2019.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball took a page out of this past Wednesday’s drawing and took a break from the repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Given that both Lotto Texas and Powerball saw their most common Patterns, we’ll have to see if Wednesday will feature an encore from either one. After all, part of how the {3-2-1} and {2-1-1-1-1} Patterns became so common in their respective lotteries is due to Pattern streaks! Encores are the steppingstone.

Lotto Texas and Powerball Hop into a Bar

The title of today’s post sounds like the setup for a corny joke, doesn’t it? Well, what happened June 5th, 2019 was no laughing matter! The dust may have settled in Powerball, but that meant more reason for it to get back up again. Although a far cry from the monstrous prize won at the beginning of the month, $53 million is not small change!

Lotto Texas, ever the levelheaded one, was no slouch, either. With no grand prize winner, its jackpot rose to a respectable $7.25 million.

Both the {3-2-1} Pattern and the [3-2-1] General Order were last seen May 11th, 2019.

A crazy-large jackpot isn’t the only way for a lottery to stand out. Wednesday night was the debut of the 0 3 2 0 0 1 Specific Order! With that said, this Specific Order has played in 7.69% of the 13 drawings where the General Order was [3-2-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 4% of the 25 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 383 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 0.26% of the time.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

Whoever thinks that only crazy-large jackpots are the way to wowing the public must not have paid attention to Wednesday night! Lotto Texas and Powerball showed that a more subtle approach can work just as well. Even so, the weekend is right around the corner and that’s when things tend to get rowdy. We’ll have to wait and see if that rowdiness appears or if the mellowness of June continues.

Sublime Lotto Texas and the Powerball Breakaway

Nothing like the start of a new month to highlight the differences between two lotteries, right? June 1st, 2019 belonged to Powerball. Both it and “sister” Mega Millions love enormous jackpots. While the sister will be starting the month with a beast of a prize, Powerball broke rank. A plucky player from North Carolina brought the jackpot down to size, with $40 million being up for grabs Wednesday.

Lotto Texas may never see prizes of that magnitude, but it should never be discounted. The jackpot went unclaimed and quietly rose to $7 million.

The dust has settled in Powerball and June will be a much-welcomed break, jackpot-wise at least. There are other ways Powerball can keep the momentum going. Saturday night’s Pattern is fond of streaks, and an encore for Wednesday night is something to look out for. Same with Lotto Texas. Could June 5th be a night of double Pattern encores?

The Aussie Bounce and Playback Pounce

May 29th played host to Lotto Texas and Powerball’s last drawings for the month. As thrilling as it would have been to see the Powerball jackpot beast be toppled, it wasn’t meant to be. One could argue that what happened Wednesday night was just as exciting, if not more. Sure, the prizes in Lotto Texas and Powerball respectively climbed to $6.75 million and $350 million, but how often do you see playbacks join forces to thwart the players?

The double playback action has Lotto Texas and Powerball fired up for June. On one hand, we all want to win, especially that crazy-high jackpot. On the other hand, we’re all asking in the back of our minds “How high can Powerball go?”

Will Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to run on their momentum or will at least one of them start June with their sails deflated?

Of Shattered Streaks and Jackpot Beasts

Lotto Texas had some of the biggest upsets this past Saturday night. The {3-2-1} Pattern, having already played three times in a row, did not go on to a fourth appearance. With the King of Lotto Texas Patterns knocked off the throne, the prize rose to a respectable $6.5 million.

Meanwhile, Powerball found itself getting acquainted with not just a Pattern encore, but a General Order encore as well! The beast of a jackpot continued its rampage unabated. It happily welcomed a growth spurt and shot up to $325 million.

What all was responsible for the madness that took place May 25th, 2019?

With May nearly done, Powerball has the jackpot momentum going for it. Wednesday will be the last drawing of the month for both lotteries and it remains to be seen if Powerball will surge onward to June or if the prize will be claimed. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern is fond of Pattern streaks, or at least trying to establish them, so a three-peat is something we’ll need to keep an eye on.

Lotto Texas, the ever-so-quiet one, can’t be counted out. The prize is nothing to sneeze at and it’s possible that the {4-2} Pattern may well surprise us!

Mega Millions’ Change of Plans?

Maybe it was due to the long holiday weekend. Perhaps it was because Mega Millions wanted the beastly jackpot to continue its rampage for a bit longer. Whatever the reason, the idea of a {3-1-1-1} Pattern encore got tossed in the trash for the May 24th, 2019 drawing. Besides, making the prize rise to $418 million is more fun, for Mega Millions at least. A look at the analysis for Friday night will shed some light on why.

This lottery took back the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, and given the history between the two, it wasn’t all that surprising. With winning numbers 14, 41, 44, 56, 62, and MB 10, this Pattern has now played 203 times.

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern may have returned this past Friday night, but if it has dreams of finishing out the month, the best it can do is a three-peat. May looks to have a blockbuster finish, regardless. Still, inquiring minds want to know: Will the jackpot hit a ceiling next week or will it burst through into June?

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

The Jackpot Wave

Two things have risen this month: temperatures and lottery jackpots! If the results for May 18th, 2019 are anything to go by, rising jackpots will continue to be in the forecast for the foreseeable future. They’ll come back down, eventually, but for now, a watch for Lotto Texas and Powerball is needed.

Powerball’s prize dwarfed that of Lotto Texas, but that’s to be expected. Even with its $288 million up for grabs Wednesday, it didn’t compare to Lotto Texas in the rumblings department. Save for a winner earlier this month, Lotto Texas has rebounded steadily and nicely found itself with a $6 million jackpot. Along the way, it rekindled its love for encores and playbacks.

Whether the {3-2-1} Pattern makes a three-peat appearance in Lotto Texas is something we’ll need to look for. Powerball, meanwhile, will have to make the difficult choice of knocking on $300 million or relinquishing its prize.
