Resting Up for New Year’s

What better way to kick off the Christmas weekend than with…a mellow night? For anyone who hoped to see an Australia Play or a repeating Three-Number Combination in the December 23rd Mega Millions drawing, we’re sorry to disappoint. Even those who wanted to see a {3-1-1-1} Pattern encore were out of luck. But, we did see the most commonly played Pattern.

Like it is with Powerball (for now), the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern is the most commonly played Mega Millions Pattern to date. The 131st appearance of this Pattern was thanks to winning numbers 21, 30, 39, 60, 69, and MB 15.

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has now played in 25.2% of the 332 drawings. We last saw this Pattern earlier in the month, back on December 6th.

The [2-1-1-1-1] General Order made its 33rd appearance, its first since October 25th, 2016. As of Friday’s drawing, this General Order has played in 25.2% of the 131 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 9.94% of the 332 Mega Millions drawings.

Finally, the 0 2 1 1 1 1 Specific Order made its sixth appearance. This Specific Order has now played in 18.2% of the 33 drawings where the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order has appeared, 4.58% of the 131 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and 1.81% of all 332 drawings. We last saw the 0 2 1 1 1 1 Specific Order play in the May 13th, 2016 drawing.

With one week to go before 2017, will Mega Millions end the year with a bang, or keep on its mellow streak?
