End-of-Month Repeating Combination Blowout

Mega Millions was never one to pass up big plays. Instead of playing an extremely rare Pattern, or even a {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore, another route was taken. For those of you who get a kick out of repeating Three-Number Combinations, September 29th was your night! Friday saw a whopping six, count ‘em six repeating Three-Number Combinations. What triggered such a large number? We’ll get to that in a minute, but first, this general Mega Millions analysis.

The {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 68th appearance, with winning numbers 25, 51, 62, 73, 74, and MB 7.

This Pattern has now played in 16.5% of the 412 drawings and was last seen earlier in the month. More specifically, in the September 8th drawing.

Now with 26 appearances, the [1-1-3-1] General Order has played in 38.2% of the 68 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 6.31% of all 412 drawings. Prior to Friday night, this General Order played in the August 22nd, 2017 drawing.

Making its third-ever appearance was the 0 1 0 0 1 3 1 Specific Order. This has now played in 11.5% of the 26 drawings where the [1-1-3-1] General Order has appeared, and in 4.41% of the 68 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 0.73% of all 412 drawings, and previously played on June 13th, 2017.

And now for the repeating Combinations bonanza. Part of what made this night so full of repeating Combinations was that there was a repeating Four-Number Combination. Repeating Four-Number Combinations are no stranger to Lotto Texas, but in Mega Millions, they don’t come by very often. This Combination was 25, 62, 74, and MB 7.

Of course, with a repeating Four-Number Combination, there are four repeating Three-Number Combinations nestled within:

  • 62, 74, MB 7
  • 25, 74, MB 7
  • 25, 62, MB 7
  • 25, 62, 74

These Combinations, and of course, the “mother” Four-Number Combination, made their debut in the December 29th, 2015 drawing.

These weren’t the only Combinations of the evening. In fact, there were two more repeating Three-Number Combinations:

  • 25, 51, 73 (Debuted September 16th, 2014)
  • 25, 51, MB 7 (Debuted January 13th, 2015)

Will Tuesday’s drawing see a {3-1-1-1} Pattern encore, or will the not often seen repeating Four-Number Combination make another appearance?
