Monstrous and Mischievous Jackpots

The “January lull”, for the most part, didn’t exist for Lotto Texas and Powerball this year. A month that saw a repeating Five-Number Combination and a similar spread saw more madness Saturday night with a Pattern three-peat. Not only was there a three-peat to contend with, a not-so-common Pattern wanted in on the action and one lottery’s (*cough*Powerball’s*cough*) monstrous jackpot grew ever larger to $394 million. Lotto Texas, normally the “classy” one, kept up its mischievous streak with a prize that grew to $5.75 million.

Three-Number Combination(s)

A towering jackpot was all Powerball needed to make its presence known.

Powerball goes forward with a monster jackpot and a potential Pattern streak. Will either of these hold going into Wednesday night?

Encore and Hops

Today’s title means one of two things. Either Lottery Binge has decided to venture into the world of craft beer brewing (and should quit before even getting started) or there was an Australia Play and a Pattern encore. We’re going to go with the latter.

This past Wednesday night was also good for fans of repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations. As busy as the night was, there were no grand prize winners in either lottery. Lotto Texas’s jackpot climbed to $5.5 million while Powerball waltzed into $373 million.

Will a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat in Powerball send its jackpot to $400 million or close to it? Could Lotto Texas see an Australia Play encore?

Spreading Lottery-Brand Madness

We’ve all been told (or should have been told) to never judge a book by its cover. That piece of advice must always be considered when performing lottery analysis. On the surface, both Lotto Texas and Powerball’s six numbers are unassuming. After all, they’re just numbers.

Well, this past Saturday saw a monstrous jackpot grow even larger, a Pattern encore, and a similar spread. The jackpot climbed to $5.25 million in Lotto Texas and $343 million in Powerball. Just numbers, indeed!

On June 18th, 2011, the winning numbers were 22, 29, 35, 37, 40, and 50, and the spread was 07:06:02:03:10.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Going into next week, we’ll need to keep an eye out for Powerball. That beast of a jackpot will get toppled sometime, but will it be Wednesday night, and with a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore? Meanwhile, the {4-1-1} Pattern isn’t known to make three-peats in Lotto Texas, but nothing seems too out of the ordinary for these lotteries!  

One Jackpot Falls. Another Stands

The ride of a jackpot high has to end sometime, and on January 15th, 2020, that time came for one lottery. Lotto Texas came into the new year riding on the high of its increasing jackpot. With the $17.5 million prize now won, the jackpot reset itself to $5 million. The Powerball jackpot stood firm, rising to $321 million.

Reduced-Strength Encore and a Combination Triple Offense

The weekend is a cherished time. It’s meant to be the two-day reprieve from the grinds of work and school. It’s a time to catch up, a time to hang out, and a time to rest.

Lotto Texas most certainly took the “rest” part to heart. There was indeed a {4-2} Pattern encore, but this appearance wasn’t nearly as explosive. An over-the-top play wasn’t needed to send the jackpot to $17.5 million.

Powerball kept it classy. However, underneath that class was a monster of a jackpot that underwent another growth spurt. The prize climbed to $296 million.

Part of a Balanced Lottery Diet

One week ago, Mega Millions found itself in the grip of a lull. That Friday night was your “standard” drawing. No encores or other big plays to speak of, and no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Oh, what a difference a week makes!

We’re not sure what got into Mega Millions this past Friday night, but it decided to indulge in a diet rich in repeating Three-Number Combinations. This was in addition to a {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore. With no one able to match all six numbers, the jackpot rose to $91 million.

General Lottery Analysis

Fresh from this past Tuesday, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 146th appearance! The winning numbers for January 10th, 2020 were 17, 27, 49, 51, 66, and MB 2.

Three-Number Combinations

Naturally, this repeating Four-Number Combination spawned four repeating Three-Number Combinations:

Four repeating Three-Number Combinations would be a good place to stop, but Mega Millions had another idea. Why stop at just four when it could have four more?

Will Mega Million continue to include massive helpings of repeating Three-Number Combinations next week?

“Wild Wednesday” with Lotto Texas and Powerball

Lull? What lull?

Lotto Texas, known for its chastity and civility (compared to Mega Millions and Powerball anyway) was anything but chaste or civil! When it came to wild and unruly, this lottery reigned supreme. This uncharacteristic behavior sent the jackpot to an even $17 million.

Powerball didn’t act foolish, and perhaps it didn’t need to. The massive jackpot, which rose to $277 million, helped this lottery preserve the appearance of dignity.

Weekend at Lotteries’

The first weekend of 2020 got off a quiet start in the lottery world. For instance, “sister” lottery Mega Millions went into hibernation mode this past Friday. The payoff was a larger jackpot heading into Tuesday. Now, how long that will last is anyone’s guess.

Lotto Texas and Powerball copied their “sister” and decided to take it easy. Powerball was able to exert a bit more energy though, with a couple of showings from repeating Three-Number Combinations. That was overshadowed by the jackpot rising to $258 million. Lotto Texas may have been at rest, but it wasn’t about to pass up the opportunity to send its jackpot to $16.5 million.

The Future is {3-2-1}

Happy New Year, everyone! Some ways to start the new year include singing “Auld Lang Syne” (poorly), drinking, binge watching movies, watching the Rose Bowl, and playing lottery. Now, one of these things isn’t like the others. Having an opportunity to win millions of dollars on the very first day of a new year doesn’t happen on years that begin on Sunday, Monday, or Thursday.

New Year’s Day 2020 had two opportunities: Lotto Texas and Powerball. They kicked off the year by mostly keeping to themselves. This (mostly) quiet night saw the jackpots rise to $16.25 million in Lotto Texas and $237 million in Powerball.

Lotto Texas

Lotto Texas began the new year the same way the old one ended: with the {3-2-1} Pattern. The Pattern encore was brought to you by 3, 4, 13, 19, 35, and 37.
