Lotto Texas and Powerball in “Spring Fever”

In our last Lotto Texas/Powerball analysis, we covered a night filled with reservation and solitude. The biggest event of the evening was a similar spread in Lotto Texas.

March 9th was a complete turnaround! Saturday night was grand for fans of repeating Combinations, both the Three and Four-Number kind. When it came to jackpots, Powerball was king. The prize is now a whopping $448 million! Lotto Texas, ever so classy, was no slouch, either. Its prize is a hardy $9.75 million.

This Combination made its debut May 12th, 2018.

Spring is about new beginnings, and in this case, insanely large jackpots. Powerball is eager to take the new season by the horns with its nearly half-billion-dollar prize. As the jackpot seems to do in times like this, it’ll most likely be at that half-billion-dollar point, if not close. That’ll be something to keep an eye on heading into Wednesday night.

Lotto Texas will continue to remain classy. As it’s not one to get bit by the crazy-large jackpot bug, we’ll need to keep an eye out for more repeating Four-Number Combinations. Who knows? Maybe another similar spread is waiting in the wings?

The Onward March of Lotto Texas & Powerball

With a saying like, “In like a lion and out like a lamb”, you’d expect either Lotto Texas or Powerball to start their March runs guns blazing. Nothing like a Pattern streak or a playback to start the month off, right?

The lotteries kicked off the month with a powerful start, but not of the “In your face” variety. March 2nd saw a Pattern encore for Lotto Texas and Powerball’s jackpot is a beast, now towering at $381 million. Meanwhile, Lotto Texas kept a cool head; its grand prize is now $8.5 million.

For those of you out there who wanted a more robust start, keep in mind that March has just begun. Powerball’s prize is a force to be reckoned with, and it will be caught one day. Question is, will it be next week or closer to the end of the month? And what about Lotto Texas’s {4-1-1} Pattern: Is a Pattern streak in the cards?

A Streak-less End

February 27th was the last night for Lotto Texas and Powerball this month, and without a doubt, they ended the month with a roar! Wednesday night belonged to Powerball, what with its repeating Three-Number Combination frenzy and a prize now a staggering $348 million.

The ever-humble Lotto Texas broke it off with the {3-2-1} Pattern after five dates. But this (normally) unassuming lottery made sure Powerball didn’t have all the fun. In the meantime, the grand prize rose to a respectable $8.25 million.

Even though the Pattern streak for the {3-2-1} Pattern was broken, Lotto Texas made amends with a playback! With winning numbers 5, 10, 11, 14, 35, and 42, the {4-1-1} Pattern made its 176th appearance.

Both the {4-1-1} Pattern and the 4 1 1 Specific Order played together in the December 5th, 2018 drawing!

Before we move on to the repeating Four-Number Combination analysis, note that the above is not an Australia Play. The 4 1 1 Specific Order is not the only one that can play alongside the {4-1-1} Pattern. What makes an Australia Play unique in Lotto Texas is that there is only one Specific Order for a specific Pattern. That special Pattern and Specific Order are {2-2-2} and 2 2 2, respectively.

Lotto Texas and Powerball look to be heading into March on a forceful note. There may not be any Pattern streaks, but there is a monstrously high jackpot and another jackpot that ain’t too shabby. Will Saturday night be a Combination frenzy night or will something else be in store?

Combination Parade

And so, with the February 26th, 2019 drawing, Mega Millions bid “Farewell” to February. What better way to end the month than a Pattern encore, right? Start off March with a Pattern streak, too.

Or perhaps a playback? We haven’t seen an Australia Play in a while, either.

Alright, I’ll level with ya. None of those things happened Tuesday night. Instead, Mega Millions had the bold idea of playing a repeating Four-Number (yes, Four-Number) Combination! A blog post introduction cannot do justice describing the fallout of such an event. If that wasn’t intense enough, the grand prize officially crossed over into quarter-billion-dollar territory, now standing tall at $267 million.

Pattern Love and a Wild Jackpot

February is just about over, and the love affair with the {3-2-1} Pattern continued in Lotto Texas. Meanwhile, Powerball moved on to yet another Pattern. Far be it from a quiet night, February 23rd saw sparks fly with repeating Four-Number and Three-Number Combinations. With the grand prizes evading capture once again, the respective jackpots climbed to $8 million and $322 million.

As we end the month, it looks like Powerball will continue its crazy-high jackpot path. Lotto Texas and the {3-2-1} Pattern are getting along, and this Pattern is notorious for Pattern streaks. We’ll have to see Wednesday whether a {3-2-1} Pattern six-peat comes to fruition and if Powerball continues to climb.

Like (Lottery) Lovers Do

Right before Valentine’s Day, Lotto Texas and Powerball went on a double-date with the {3-2-1} Pattern and the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, respectively. The date was such a success that the Patterns wanted to go on another. That’s right; both lotteries saw a Pattern encore February 16th! To make the double-date even more memorable, interesting developments took shape in the repeating Four and Three-Number Combinations. That, and with prizes that rose to $7.5 million and $282 million, Saturday night was one to remember.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The relationship Lotto Texas has with the {3-2-1} Pattern is a bit more complicated. Yes, there was a Pattern encore, but truthfully, it was more than that.

The February 9th Playback Spectacle

Momentum was ramped up Saturday night! For starters, Lotto Texas went ahead full throttle. This normally unassuming lottery appears to have developed a newfound spunk. Its affliction with Playback Fever was only tempered by its respectable $7 million grand prize.

Powerball, often seen as the grander of the two, showed a few symptoms of the Fever as well. However, a surprise Specific Order kept it from completely taking over. The prize continued climbing towards stratospheric heights, now standing at $242 million.

For Pattern Streak Kicks

The theme of the evening for February 6th was “Pattern streak”. After an astounding six consecutive appearances, Lotto Texas’s {3-2-1} Pattern bowed out. Meanwhile, Powerball looked to be developing a streak with its {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern.

One commonality between the lotteries was the lack of a grand prize winner. Their respective prizes climbed to $6.75 million and $224 million.

February has just gotten started and the lotteries show no sign of letting winter get the better of them. Currently, the longest Pattern streak is indeed held by the {3-2-1} Pattern in Lotto Texas, with eight consecutive appearances. Will the Pattern tie the record and will Powerball’s {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern get a Pattern streak going Wednesday night?

The Six Lives of the {3-2-1} Pattern

January truly was the month of the {3-2-1} Pattern and the results of Wednesday’s Lotto Texas drawing fortified it. This (normally) unassuming little lottery, what with its now $6.25 million prize, played its most common Pattern for the sixth time in a row!

Although Powerball didn’t see a Pattern encore, it too saw its most common Pattern make a play. The jackpot increased to $191 million, which gave it a boost going into February.
