Touchdown, Mega Millions

Lottery Trend country is fully in the grips of Super Bowl weekend. Mega Millions itself may be impartial to whichever team wins, and (thankfully) can’t get fat from all the Super Bowl treats, but that didn’t mean it couldn’t mark the occasion in its own way. How, you wonder? The February 3rd drawing saw an encore appearance of Tuesday’s Pattern, and saw a Three-Number Combination repeat!

For those who you keeping score, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern from Tuesday night played again in Friday’s drawing. This time around, the winning numbers were 3, 6, 29, 30, 64, and MB 3.

Now with 107 appearances, this Pattern has played in 31.1% of the 344 Mega Millions drawings to date. While impressive, it still has a ways to go before even thinking about overtaking the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, which has played 136 times.

Getting back to the {2-2-1-1} Pattern now, the [2-2-1-1] General Order made its 38th appearance. This General Order has now played in 35.5% of the 107 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in approximately 11% of all drawings. We haven’t seen the [2-2-1-1] General Order in quite some time; it last appeared in the July 26th, 2016 drawing.

If you thought six months (give or take a week) was a long time for a General Order to play again, then the 2 2 0 0 1 1 Specific Order hadn’t been seen for a little over a year. This Specific Order previously played in the November 17th, 2015 drawing. Now having played seven times, the 2 2 0 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 18.4% of the 38 drawings where the [2-2-1-1] General Order has appeared, 6.54% of the 107 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 2.03% of all drawings.

One of the biggest plays of the night was a repeat appearance of the Three-Number Combination 29, 64, and MB 3, which made its debut in the December 6th, 2013 drawing.

Whether you’re a football fan, or just watching for the halftime show, inquiring minds want to know just one thing. Will the {2-2-1-1} Pattern go for a three-peat?
