Pummeling and (Near) Playbacks

One word described the night of August 5, 2020: brutal. Lotto Texas and Powerball players got pummeled for even daring to think they could win either of the jackpots. It could be argued that players of the former bore the brunt of it, as there was a Texas-sized playback. With that playback came a jackpot now worth $30.25 million. That quiet, unassuming Lotto Texas ain’t so quiet these days, and hasn’t been for some time.

A playback looked to be on the horizon in Powerball but no go. The jackpot there settled at a comfortable $158 million.

The uncommonly seen {3-3} Pattern was the cause of the kerfuffle here. With winning numbers 8, 12, 15, 37, 44 and 54, this Pattern made its 141st appearance.

Now, 141 is a pretty big number, but see, there have been 1783 Lotto Texas drawings. Of those drawings, the {3-3} Pattern has only played in 7.91% of them.

Now with 53 appearances, the 3 0 3 Specific Order has played in 37.6% of the 141 drawings where {3-3} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1783 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 2.98% of the time.

Both the {3-3} Pattern and the 3 0 3 Specific Order were last seen in the June 13, 2020 drawing.

Four-Number Combinations

The {3-3} Pattern couldn’t bear to act alone. In addition to the playback, it was accompanied by a posse of repeating Four-Number Combinations:

  • 8, 37, 44, 54 (Debuted October 30, 2010)
  • 8, 15, 44, 54 (Debuted March 16, 2019)

The Fight for Dominance

Today’s title isn’t something you’d expect for a Lottery Binge post. But you see, things haven’t been exactly “normal” in the lottery world these past few weeks. We had a lottery that’s known for its respectability (rhymes with “Potto Lexus”) become the one with the largest jackpot. In fact, this past Saturday saw its jackpot rise (again!) to $21.25 million. Powerball, determined to not have its jackpot won so easily, pulled itself back up. With no one able to pick all six numbers, the jackpot rose to $22 million.

Lotto Texas

With Powerball on top, it appears that the “rightful” order has been restored. As we head into another week of lottery madness, will Powerball get past $22 million this time? Will the Lotto Texas jackpot keep climbing?

Let Those Jackpots Ride!

There’s a buzz in the air! School’s (letting) out and all that pent-up energy has to go somewhere. The theme parks may not be open yet, but the beaches and great outdoors are as popular as ever. Everyone is looking forward to more daylight, warmer temperatures and hopefully an increasing sense of “normalcy”.

Lotto Texas and Powerball spent the night of May 27, 2020 boosting their stores. With no one picking the six winning numbers, their respective jackpots climbed to $18.25 million and $125 million.

A Not-so-Taxing Wednesday

April 15 is traditionally Tax Day in the U.S. All those who haven’t filed their taxes yet can breathe a sigh of relief, as this year’s Tax Day is July 15.

With one lottery embracing a payback and both lotteries forming an attachment to this past January, the night was anything but quiet! No grand prize winners meant rising jackpots. Lotto Texas climbed to $12 million and Powerball crossed over to $24 million. Can you believe the Lotto Texas jackpot is now worth half that of Powerball’s?

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.

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.

The Night When It Reached 400

August 3rd, 2019 was an historic night in the lottery world. Powerball had its 400th drawing* and with it came a jackpot rise to $112 million! Lotto Texas, meanwhile, has been following in Powerball’s footsteps. Although nowhere near the madness its buddy has participated in, a showing form an uncommon Pattern forced the jackpot to rise to $15 million. That’s still a good amount of prize money.

The next 100 Powerball drawings will most certainly be full of numbers madness! On to more present matters, could the {2-2-1-1} Pattern make an encore in Wednesday’s drawing? Will Lotto Texas continue its run with jackpot fever, or will it come down?

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?

When (Repeating) Combinations Attack

Lotto Texas and Powerball couldn’t be any more different than Mega Millions! As Mega Millions continued its rest, the two lotteries joined forces November 14th. How, you wonder? With the power of repeating Combinations, of course! Neither lottery saw a grand prize winner, and the jackpots rose to a respectable $6 million and $124 million, respectively. As is the nature of the lottery beast, it wasn’t just repeating Combinations we found under the hood!

The momentum for Powerball and Lotto Texas continues as we head into Saturday. Could Powerball’s {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern get a Pattern streak going, and could the {3-3} Pattern in Lotto Texas do the “unthinkable” and make an encore?

 

The Big Combination Spectacle

It’s that time of year again! Summer isn’t just a time of hot weather and long vacations. It’s full of spectacle, too. Big budget movies and televised talent shows (live, even!) beat reruns for sure. With no winners for either Lotto Texas or Powerball May 23rd, and with smaller jackpots to boot, a quiet night would’ve been expected. Of course, these lotteries had other plans. The biggest spectacle of the evening was with the repeating Combinations, especially those of the Three-Number persuasion.
