And That Number Was 27

Now that the confetti has been swept away and the kids have gone back to school, it’s time to put away the Long Island Iced Teas and focus. Mega Millions started the year with the appearance of a commonly seen Pattern, and upon closer observation, a few instances of “27”. Date-wise, that is.

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 104th appearance, with winning numbers 14, 16, 23, 49, 53, and MB 12.

As of the January 3rd, 2017 drawing, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has now played in 31% of the 335 drawings. We last saw this Pattern exactly one week prior in the December 27th drawing. Unlike the {2-2-1-1} Pattern in Powerball, this {2-2-1-1} Pattern won’t overtake the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern any time soon.

The [1-2-2-1] General Order made its 31st appearance, and like the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, it also was last seen in the December 27th, drawing. This General Order has now played in 29.8% of the 104 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern appeared, and in 9.25% of all drawings.

The 1 2 0 2 0 1 Specific Order has now played five times. With that said, this Specific Order has appeared in 16.1% of the 31 drawings where the [1-2-2-1] General Order has appeared, 4.81% of the 104 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} has appeared, and in 1.49% of all drawings. Prior to Tuesday, the 1 2 0 2 0 1 Specific Order had played in the January 13th, 2015 drawing.

We saw a repeating Three-Number Combination in the form of 14, 16, and 53.
