A Reset Deferred

It’s been exactly one week since the Powerball jackpot was won. Since that time, Powerball continues to pick up the pieces, and Lotto Texas remains on top. The prize in that lottery is now worth $45.5 million. The natural order hasn’t been restored in Powerball’s mind. No way that Lotto Texas stayed on top! What’s a “disgraced” lottery to do?

A {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat was part of Powerball’s arsenal, though that wasn’t enough to soothe the fevered desire to be back on top. Even with a volley of repeating Three-Number Combinations, the jackpot rose just a bit, from $22 million to $25 million. Patience, dear Powerball. Patience.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The gulf between the Lotto Texas and Powerball jackpots was as expansive as the Outback. With winning numbers 10, 11, 22, 32, 45 and 54, the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order gave the jackpot a leap forward. An Australia Play has occurred 244 times.

Will Powerball’s wish for Lotto Texas to be knocked from the top come true Saturday night, or will the lottery from down south hold strong?

At the Top and Twice as Much

Lotto Texas was in a world of its own. Powerball was forced to reset, and Lotto Texas was now on top. And, after what happened September 19, 2020, it extended its stay until at least the next drawing. The players failed once more to match all six numbers. Rather than go all out, a sliver of that old-time Lotto Texas respectability shone through. The jackpot rose to “just” $44 million.

Powerball began the task of rebuilding its clout. Things got off to a nice start, for players there failed to match all the numbers as well. In fact, $22 million isn’t a bad prize. Although, it was a reminder to Powerball that Lotto Texas had a jackpot now worth twice as much. A bitter pill to swallow for a lottery notorious for monster-sized jackpots, to be sure.

Neither Mega Millions nor Powerball are strangers to being the ones on top, but for Lotto Texas, it’s a wondrous, yet terrifying experience. Staying on top can either be long-lasting, or short-lived. And, Lotto Texas hasn’t forgotten that when the time comes for its reset, the climb back to the top will be much harder and much longer. Will it be able to hold off the reset for at least another drawing?

Jackpots Ride Again!

The Grand Combination Explosion

When lotteries get into lofty positions, they’re (usually) not willing to give them up easily. Lotto Texas has had a taste of the lottery high life. What with its jackpot closer to $40 million than it ever has been in a very long time, it’s has no plans to go down so easily! And even though Powerball is no stranger to being in such a comfortable spot, it too must put up the occasional fight to prove its worth.

When you come for lotteries, you best not miss.

Except, everyone missed September 5, 2020. Both lotteries had the insane idea of lobbing at least one repeating Four-Number Combination. Lotto Texas also threw in a similar spread for good measure. Sure, the country club hall is a mess, but Lotto Texas was pleased as punch upon reaching $39 million. Powerball was content with $75 million and thought there was no way that “uppity” Lotto Texas could catch up.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The uncommonly seen {4-2} Pattern made its 194th appearance, with winning numbers 4, 9, 16, 17, 20 and 35.

Beware of lotteries playing rare Patterns! Source: lotterytrend.com.

This Pattern has now played in 10.8% of the 1792 Lotto Texas drawings and was last seen August 15, 2020.

Now with 43 appearances, the 4 2 0 Specific Order has played in 22.2% of the 194 drawings where {4-2} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1792 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 2.40% of the time. Prior to Saturday night, the 4 2 0 Specific Order played June 6, 2020.

Similar Spread

Saturday night’s numbers had a spread of 05:07:01:03:15. March 18, 2017 had a spread similar to this. That night, the winning numbers were 12, 15, 16, 23, 38 and 43, and their spread was 03:01:07:15:05. Different numbers played both nights but notice that the differences between numbers were the same, although in different orders. A fine specimen of a similar spread, wouldn’t you say?

Four-Number Combinations

Four repeating Four-Number Combinations were invited to the party:

  • 4, 9, 17, 35 (Debuted November 29, 2008)

This Pattern has now played in 2.92% of the 514 Powerball drawings and was last seen May 27, 2020.

The [4-1-1] General Order, now with seven appearances, has played in 46.7% of the 15 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 514 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has also played 1.36% of the time. The [4-1-1] General Order was last seen November 13, 2019.

Now with a grand total of two appearances, the 0 4 0 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in 28.6% of the seven drawings where the General Order was [4-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 13.3% of the 15 drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.39% of all 514 drawings. The 0 4 0 1 0 1 Specific Order made its first appearance in the May 16, 2018 drawing.

Four-Number Combination

Powerball’s contribution to the repeating Four-Number Combination pot was 21, 27, 47, and PB 7.

This Combination debuted in the July 11, 2018 drawing.

Three-Number Combinations

Of course, that repeating Four-Number Combination had four repeating Three-Number Combinations as part of its entourage:

  • 21, 27, 47
  • 21. 27, PB 7
  • 27, 47, PB 7
  • 21, 47, PB 7

The top three Combinations made their debut in the July 11th drawing mentioned earlier. Although the last Combination in the group played on that date (naturally), its debut was January 27, 2018.

But, wait! There’s one more Combination: 15, 22 and 27 debuted June 24, 2020.

Blue and red abound! Source: lotterytrend-powerball.com

As the days grow shorter, the jackpots grow larger. Lotto Texas isn’t going to go down without a fight, and Powerball is content with the gap between them. Of course, if Powerball isn’t careful, it may find itself looking at Lotto Texas from behind. On the other hand, fate may deal Lotto Texas a bad hand, leaving Powerball to gloat as the “uppity” little lottery from down South has to start all over again at $5 million. What awaits these lotteries in the week ahead?

Lottery Euphoria

September 2, 2020 was a win for lottery high society.

The euphoria was strong in Lotto Texas. So strong, in fact, that it didn’t notice the mob of players on the country club grounds, just itching to take it down. Their efforts failed, and the winnings climbed to $37.5 million. Ah well, they thought. Let’s try for Powerball.

Except, the mob had been escorted off the premises before they could go for Powerball. As it, too, saw no grand prize winners, the jackpot rose to $66 million.

Lotto Texas

General Lottery Analysis

The mob got a swift kick to the pants with an Australia Play. With winning numbers 7, 13, 26, 32, 46 and 54, the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order made their 242nd appearance together.

The Greatest Flattery

In a chaotic world that appears to be growing ever more chaotic, humans evolved a little something they like to call “escapism”. Something to make them forget about the pain, suffering, and needless tedium in their lives. Let’s delve into a little bit of that escapism and look at the continuing strife between Lotto Texas and Powerball. In the case of the former, nothing else mattered in its quest to remain in the good graces of lottery high society.

The night of August 29, 2020 saw these lotteries imitate one another. Not only did they both play their most commonly seen Patterns, these were encores! Lotto Texas was rewarded with a jackpot that rose to $36.75 million, and Powerball rose to $56 million.

Still, the question remains: Who imitated whom?

The {3-2-1} Pattern encore was made possible with winning numbers 7, 18, 22, 33, 35 and 39. This Pattern has now played 950 times.

With 1790 Lotto Texas drawings having taken place, this Pattern has played 53.1% of the time. Recall that the {3-2-1} Pattern was seen August 26, 2020.

Now with 159 appearances, the 2 3 1 Specific Order has played in 16.8% of the 950 drawings where {3-2-1} was the winning Pattern. This Specific Order has also played in 8.88% of the 1790 drawings. Prior to Saturday night, the 2 3 1 Specific Order played August 1, 2020.

As it is in the human world, it’s difficult to attain clout. What took months to achieve a dream for Lotto Texas can easily be undone in the next drawing. And Powerball, though it always had a “higher” starting position, isn’t immune, either. Will both lotteries continue their climb at the start of September, or will at least one of them fall?

Lotto Texas is loving the clout, the high life, even, and it wasn’t going to give that up easily. Playing safe with a {3-2-1} Pattern encore reaped big rewards! The jackpot rose to $36 million, and Lotto Texas got to extend its stay in the club.

Powerball, meanwhile, quietly rose to $47 million. It could rest easy knowing an $11 million gap existed between it and Lotto Texas.

The Closing Jackpot Gap

Not much separates the value of the Powerball and Lotto Texas jackpots. Currently, Mega Millions has the most clout, and although they both have a way to go before reaching that height, a race to be Number Two may be underway soon.

On August 22, 2020, the gap between “established” Powerball and “new money” Lotto Texas narrowed. With neither lottery seeing a grand prize winner, their jackpots increased. Lotto Texas ascended to $34.75 million and Powerball ascended to $37 million.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Powerball, flustered by that “uppity” Lotto Texas, had no repeating Three-Number Combinations to accompany it.

At least one of these things will happen Wednesday night: Lotto Texas continues to close in on Powerball, or Lotto Texas takes the Number Two spot as Powerball resets. Perhaps in their bout of social climbing, they take each other down? Powerball would certainly be Number Two then, what with Lotto Texas’s reset value being $5 million, while it would sit comfortably at $20 million. We’ll just have to wait until Wednesday night and see!

“Spreading the Jackpot Madness” or “The Inner Workings of Lottery Society”

The lottery world has always been a strange place. Numbers are the dominant species, and clout is in the form of jackpot size. The larger your jackpot, the higher your status.

In this strange world, Lotto Texas has gained clout, and is determined to hold on to it. With the help of a rarely seen Pattern and a similar spread, this lottery cemented itself in high society. The jackpot climbed to $34.25 million.

Powerball’s jackpot rises and falls, like jackpots are wont to do. However, it could reassure itself that it was of a “better” stock than that Lotto Texas! Well, Powerball was able to continue its climb upward. With no grand prize winner, the jackpot there ascended to $29 million.

This Pattern has now played in 3.53% of the 1787 Lotto Texas drawings and was last seen March 28, 2020.

Now with 11 appearances, the 0 5 1 Specific Order has played in 17.5% of the 63 drawings where {5-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 1787 drawings have been taken into consideration, this Specific Order has played 0.62% of the time. Prior to Wednesday night, the 0 5 1 Specific Order was last seen March 25, 2017.

Similar Spread

The spreadfor August 19th was 04:05:02:02:18. On March 19, 2008, numbers 17, 35, 40, 42, 46 and 48 had a spread of 18:05:02:04:02. Differences between the numbers that played were the same, yet the orders in which they played on those nights were different. Now, some lotteries may gripe, saying this was a case of try-hard, but a similar spread was a touch of class. Who classier than Lotto Texas?

Four-Number Combinations

Of course, Lotto Texas wasn’t done. There were also two repeating Four-Number Combinations!

Powerball decided to go in the opposite direction and play a commonly seen Pattern, its most common Pattern, to be precise. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 194th appearance with 13, 23, 47, 55, 58 and PB 23.

This Pattern has now played in 38.1% of the 509 Powerball drawings and was last seen August 1, 2020.

The [1-1-1-2-1] General Order, now with 39 appearances, has played in 20.1% of the 194 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 509 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 7.66% of the time. We last saw the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order June 27, 2020.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Repeating Three-Number Combination 47, 55 and 58 debuted December 1, 2018.

While it is nice to be at the top, it would do Lotto Texas good to remember that the bigger they come, the harder they fall. It doesn’t take much effort for Powerball to rise to the $30 million+ range. Will Lotto Texas continue its time in the lottery high society, or will it feel the sting of a captured jackpot and the painful crash?

Unshakeable Lotto Texas and Plucky Powerball

This year has been a year of discovery for Lotto Texas. Unlike Mega Millions and Powerball, this lottery is, comparatively speaking, the prim and proper one. Now and again, it indulges but pulls back when things get too hairy. Thing is, Lotto Texas hasn’t pulled back in a while. Since January, the jackpot has climbed from $5 million to over $30 million. August 15, 2020 was yet another winless night, and more money being added to the pot meant $33.25 million up for grabs in the next drawing.

August 15, 2020 was a night of opportunity for Powerball. After getting knocked off its feet earlier this week, it dusted off and hit the ground running. With the help of encores from both the Pattern and the General Order, the jackpot rose to $22 million.

Lotto Texas seems to have fully embraced this “new” self. Will this lottery continue to indulge itself, or will it begin to tone it down a notch?
