The November 11th Mega Millions drawing was a turning point. The lottery world provided a much-needed sanctuary from all the madness in the “real world” as of late. In contrast to what we saw in Tuesday’s drawing, Friday’s Mega Millions kicked off the weekend in a low-key manner.

We start with the 51st appearance of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, brought forth by winning numbers 16, 40, 47, 53, 59, and MB 11.

The {3-1-1-1} Pattern has now played in 15.9% of the 320 drawings to date. We last saw this Pattern at the beginning of last month: October 4th, to be precise.

The [1-1-3-1] General Order made its 19th appearance, its first since the June 3rd, 2016 drawing. This General Order has appeared in 37.3% of the 51 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern was the winning Pattern. When we take all 320 drawings into account, the statistic becomes 5.94%.

Last, but certainly not least, the 0 1 1 3 0 1 Specific Order made its 4th appearance. The 0 1 1 3 0 1 Specific Order has played in 21.5% of the 19 drawings where the [1-1-3-1] General Order was seen. This becomes 7.84% of the time when looking at the 51 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern appeared, and 1.25% of the time when looking at all 320 drawings. To see when the 0 1 1 3 0 1 Specific Order previously played, we need to go back to October 30th, 2015.

As Thanksgiving and Christmas plans are beginning to be put into action, what gifts will Mega Millions bestow in the week ahead?
