Catching Breath

After Friday night’s drawing, you were probably just eager to see a real Australia Play in Mega Millions, weren’t you? Seeing the Pattern, General Order, and the Specific Order having all previously played together before was just a teaser, right? Well, that was not to be. Tuesday night was not the night, and the {3-1-1-1} Pattern didn’t make an encore appearance. Yet, as calm as the May 16th drawing was, a Three-Number Combination made its second-ever appearance.

Pattern-wise, reigning champion {2-1-1-1-1} made its 152nd appearance, with winning numbers 4, 35, 39, 56, 72, and MB 11.

Will Friday’s drawing feature a bona fide Australia Play? Will an even bigger play usher in the start of the weekend or will Mega Millions mellow out?
