For those of you who’ve just started checking out Lottery Binge, you can see above that the Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order all appeared together on a previous day. This is one feature of the Australia Play phenom; the main feature is that the Pattern, General Order, and the Specific Order are the same. In the case of Mega Millions, the Australia Play would consist of the {1-1-1-1-1} Pattern, the [1-1-1-1-1-1] General Order, and the 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order. However, unlike what occurred on Friday night, the statistics for each would be the same. What took place isn’t common to begin with, even rarer when an Australia Play did not appear.

Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore appearance? Will there be a bona fide Australia Play?
