Everything’s Coming Up January

Friday night has come and gone, and compared to Tuesday’s drawing, this Mega Millions was quiet. What with Super Bowl fever sweeping across Lottery Trend country, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary to expect Australia Plays, or repeating Three-Number Combinations, or even a combination of the two. This time around, Mega Millions decided to conserve its energy, perhaps for when Super Bowl weekend truly is upon us.

Nevertheless, the January 27th drawing marked the encore appearance of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern. The winning numbers were 17, 37, 53, 54, 61, and MB 8.
