The Iron Grip of the {3-2-1} Pattern

The {3-2-1} Pattern reigned supreme May 23, 2020. There was, in fact, a {3-2-1} Pattern three-peat in Lotto Texas. However, that wasn’t enough to satiate this Pattern’s appetite. That’s right: the {3-2-1} Pattern also showed up in Powerball! A Pattern’s double appearance did nothing to bring the jackpots down. If anything, that made them grow even more! Lotto Texas grew to $17.5 million and Powerball ballooned to $114 million.

Will the {3-2-1} Pattern continue on to a Pattern streak in Lotto Texas, and will it be bold enough to make an encore in Powerball?

The Grand {3-2-1} Pattern Encore

So, the {3-2-1} Pattern made an encore in Lotto Texas. Big deal. Why yes, it was a big deal!

The {3-2-1} Pattern encore of May 20, 2020 solidified this Pattern as the King of Lotto Texas. Furthermore, this encore produced a repeating Five-Number Combination (and all that it implies) and fueled this lottery’s love of a growing jackpot. This normally unassuming lottery saw its grand prize rise to $17.25 million.

Powerball didn’t ruffle any feathers. However, it too saw its jackpot climb, reaching $104 million.

Lotto Texas and Powerball Get Out and Go

It’s that time of year again! Summer is right around the corner, and with all that’s happened these past few months, everyone is itching to get back to some sense of “normalcy”. The easing of stay-at-home orders is scratching that itch, and what went down May 16, 2020 showed that humans weren’t the only ones who can’t bear to be cooped up for long!

Lotto Texas and Powerball put on their masks and went out and about. All that pent-up energy led to one lottery coming this close to seeing a playback, while another saw a Pattern encore and a similar spread. There were no grand prize winners produced in this madness, and the jackpots climbed once again. Lotto Texas’s jackpot rose to $16.25 million while Powerball’s jumped to $95 million.

Fresh from this past Wednesday, the {3-2-1} Pattern came back for an encore. With winning numbers 2, 17, 31, 33, 34 and 37, this Pattern made its 932nd appearance.

There have now been 1760 Lotto Texas drawings, and this Pattern has now played 53% of the time.

Now with 154 appearances, the 2 3 1 Specific Order has played in 16.5% of the 932 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1760 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 8.75% of the time. We last saw the 2 3 1 Specific Order in the April 8, 2020 drawing.

Similar Spread

Saturday’s numbers had the spread of 15:14:02:01:03. This spread is similar to the one that was seen almost seven years ago in the June 8, 2013 drawing. That night, the winning numbers were 14, 28, 29, 44, 46 and 49. The spread was 14:01:15:02:03.

It’s best to remember that when dealing with similar spreads that despite the differences between played numbers being the same, the order in which the numbers played on those nights was different.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Lotto Texas had enough room for three repeating Four-Number Combinations:

  • 2, 17, 33, 37 (Debuted June 5, 2002)
  • 31, 33, 34, 37 (Debuted October 6, 2010)

With the onward march to summer, will the jackpots continue their rise? Is Lotto Texas gearing up for another {3-2-1} Pattern streak?

Lotto Texas and Powerball Get Their Climb On

No, neither lottery saw a Pattern encore. After what happened this past Saturday, it may be a while yet before we see streaks. Regardless, the results of May 13, 2020 showed that one doesn’t need Pattern streaks to see an increase in the grand prize! With no one able to pick the six winning numbers in either Lotto Texas or Powerball, their respective jackpots rose to $16 million and $86 million.

May the Pattern Streaks Be With You

Love it or hate it, Star Wars has had lasting appeal. Movies, toys, spin-offs, cartoons and more have kept the franchise in our collective conscious for at least four decades.

What does Star Wars have to do with today’s post, you ask? Aside from the title being a (late) nod to Star Wars Day, lotteries, too, have that appeal. Striking it big just by picking the six winning numbers. What’s not to love about that? Except, it’s not as easy as it sounds, and lotteries have a way of thwarting players, and the most appealing method depends on a lottery’s mood.

On May 6, 2020, we saw that Pattern streaks were very appealing to both Lotto Texas and Powerball! As their flaming hot streaks continued, their jackpots rose to $15 million and $68 million, respectively.

The End-of-April Encore Doubleheader

In yesterday’s blog post, we analyzed the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore in Mega Millions, and the resulting aftermath. Apparently, the urge to end the month with an encore, and with the most commonly seen Pattern no less, was contagious! Not only did Lotto Texas and Powerball end April with Pattern encores, one such encore was a three-peat! With no grand prize winners to be had, the jackpot for Lotto Texas rose to $13.75 million. Powerball, now used to its “slimmer” state, saw its jackpot rise to $51 million.

Pent-Up Lottery Energy

For some people, being made to stay home has been an opportunity to catch up on books they’ve been meaning to read, shows and movies they’ve been meaning to watch, and not worry too much about appearance. But, even the most “homebodiest” of homebodies doesn’t want to stay at home for too long. The longer you’re homebound, the more pent-up energy and without a proper outlet, the results can be explosive.

Thankfully, Lotto Texas and Powerball found a release valve! The night of April 18, 2020 was a night of repeating Combinations doubles and a surge in the jackpots. Well, more like a steady growth. The prize rose to $12.25 million in Lotto Texas and $29 million in Powerball.

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?

Friday Night Substitution

When you hear “substitute” or “substitution”, what comes to mind? We’ve all had substitute teachers or had to make do with a different brand of peanut butter if the one we wanted was unavailable. A substitute isn’t inherently superior or inferior; it’s just something different.

If you played Mega Millions this past Friday (or not), then you should know that the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak was terminated. In fact, you could say a repeating Four-Number Combination and the resulting madness was a substitute for whatever the Pattern five-peat would have brought. Regardless of your feelings towards repeating Four-Number Combinations in Mega Millions, it’s highly doubtful you’d turn your nose up at a jackpot that jumped to $145 million!
