Full Pattern Revolution

November 28th was the last Mega Millions drawing for the month. And wouldn’t you know it? The ever-so-lovable {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made an encore! Pattern streaks? Showing up on every Friday of the month? Those are well and good. But, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern outdid itself, adding “Finishing the month the way it started” to its list of accomplishments.

Now that we’re done gushing over this Pattern, let’s get to the analysis, shall we?

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 10, 17, 47, 51, 61, and MB 5, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 135th appearance.

Given that there have been 310 Mega Millions drawings, this Pattern has played 43.5% of the time.

Now with 36 appearances, the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order has played in roughly 26.7% of the 135 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. And, it has appeared in 11.6% of all 310 drawings. Prior to Tuesday night, this General Order played November 10th, 2017.

Making its seventh appearance was the 1 1 0 2 1 1 Specific Order. This has now played in 19.4% of the 36 drawings where the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 5.19% of the 135 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern appeared. Finally, when taking all 310 drawings into account, this Specific Order has played 2.26% of the time. We last saw the 1 1 0 2 1 1 Specific Order in the December 11th, 2015 drawing. This was reconfigured from the 1 1 1 1 1 1 Specific Order seen that night.

Four Number Combination(s)

Of course, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern wasn’t going to settle for appearing in the first and last drawings of November. True to this Pattern’s fashion, it’s “Go big or go home.” There was in fact a repeating Four-Number Combination:

This Combination made its debut in the December 15th, 2015 drawing.

Three Number Combination(s)

When a repeating Four-Number Combination surfaces in Mega Millions, that means four repeating Three-Number Combinations were nestled inside.

  • 47, 61, MB 5
  • 47, 51, MB 5

As is the nature of these types of Three-Number Combinations, they made their debut alongside the Four-Number Combination mentioned in the previous section.

Will that winsome {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern be the one to start December?

Numbers to Go

Another Thanksgiving weekend has come and gone. People took to the skies and roads once again on November 25th, wanting to beat the mad rush home that would surely await them if they left Sunday. Lotto Texas sent along a playback. That is, both the Pattern and Specific Order were seen together on a previous date. Meanwhile, Powerball ran into a Pattern encore.

Lotto Texas

The {3-2-1} Pattern made its 780th appearance in Saturday’s drawing, with winning numbers 7, 10, 12, 22, 44, and 51.

This Pattern has played in 51.9% of the 1502 Lotto Texas drawings, and was last seen on November 8th, 2017.

Now with 144 appearances, the 3 1 2 Specific Order has played in 18.5% of the 780 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 9.59% of all 1502 drawings. As is the nature of a playback, this Specific Order accompanied the {3-2-1} Pattern November 8th. Note that a playback is not an Australia Play. Remember that with the latter, both the Pattern and the Specific Order would be the same. For Lotto Texas, that would be the {2-2-2} Pattern and the 2 2 2 Specific Order, respectively.

Here’s a good rule of thumb to abide by: All Australia Plays are playbacks, but not all playbacks are Australia Plays.

Four-Number Combination(s)

Among Saturday’s numbers was the repeating Four-Number Combination 7, 10, 12, 22.

This Combination made its debut in the December 30th, 2015 drawing. Could Lotto Texas end the year with a repeating Four-Number Combination just like it did two years ago?

Powerball

It has also played in roughly 5.8% of the 69 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared. Finally, when taking all 224 drawings into account, this Specific Order has played 1.79% of the time. The 2 1 0 2 0 1 Specific Order accompanied the [2-1-2-1] General Order in the November 4th drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Saturday’s Powerball drawing produced the repeating Three-Number Combination 8, 53, and 54.

Will there be more Pattern encores to end the month?

Friday Belongs to {2-1-1-1-1}

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern likes to shake things up in Mega Millions. Its (in)famous Pattern streaks are part of how it became the most commonly seen Pattern. After the results of the November 24th drawing, we can now add Friday nights to the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern’s domain. This may be the first time in Lottery Binge’s history that we’ve covered a Pattern that has played on a certain day of the week.

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 16, 36, 54, 61, 64, and MB 22, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played 134 times.

When looking at all 309 drawings, this General Order has played 10.4% of the time. The [1-1-1-2-1] General Order was seen alongside the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern in the November 17th drawing.

A Night of Wednesdays Past

First, we would like to wish our U.S. readers a Happy Thanksgiving. May the pigskin fly and the turkey be bountiful.

Some things rest for no man, and lottery drawings are some of those things. Lotto Texas and Powerball flipped the script November 22nd. There weren’t any Pattern encores, but, each lottery’s Pattern was last seen on a previous Wednesday in November. There was another switch-up, but you’ll have to keep reading to find out what it was.

Lotto Texas

As we barrel ahead to the Christmas shopping season, will there be any Pattern encores or other switch-ups Saturday night?

Pattern Pie

Thanksgiving. You know, that holiday sandwiched in between Halloween and Christmas? The holiday being swallowed by the ever-persistent “Christmas Creep-up?”  November 21st may as well have been the unofficial start to the Thanksgiving holiday. The highways and airports were (are!) packed, and those in charge of the meal were getting those last ingredients.

Mega Millions isn’t one to show up to an occasion empty-handed. Did it bring a rare Pattern, or did this past Friday’s Pattern make an encore?

General Lottery Analysis

Turns out it was neither! With winning numbers 3, 7, 22, 27, 50, and MB 3, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 87th appearance.

Three Number Combination(s)

The repeating Three-Number Combination of the evening was 7, 22, 27.

What gift will Mega Millions snag on Black Friday?

 

Rare Patterns, Not Rare Turkey

With a few more days to go before Thanksgiving, November 18th got into the business of Patterns. Rare Patterns. Both Lotto Texas and Powerball got together and served up the treats for rare Pattern lovers everywhere. Once more, it appeared that Lotto Texas had most of the fun. But, Powerball couldn’t be counted out completely.

With winning numbers 1, 4, 5, 8, 12, and 26, the {5-1} Pattern made its 54th appearance.

The appearance of this Pattern is a double whammy, it being a rare Pattern for one. The other being that Saturday night’s drawing was the 1500th drawing with numbers 1-54. With that said, the {5-1} Pattern has played a whopping 3.6% of the time. Believe it or not, it wasn’t that long ago that this Pattern was last seen. It made an appearance in the August 5th, 2017 drawing.

Now with eight appearances, the 5 1 0 Specific Order has played in 14.8% of the 54 drawings where the {5-1} Pattern has played. This Specific Order has also played in 0.53% of all 1500 drawings, and previously played in the March 25th, 2015 drawing.

Four-Number Combination(s)

It wasn’t enough for a rare Pattern to show itself. There had to be a repeating Four-Number Combination, too! The Combination of the evening was 1, 8, 12, 26, and it made its debut in the July 2nd, 2016 drawing.

What was Powerball’s rare Pattern?

 

Powerball

General Lottery Analysis

The {3-2-1} Pattern may reign supreme in Lotto Texas, but that’s certainly not the case in Powerball. Here, the {3-2-1} Pattern made its twelfth appearance, with winning numbers 17, 28, 31, 32, 39, and PB 26.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Even with a rare Pattern, there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will there be Pattern encores in Wednesday’s drawing?

It’s a Friday Night Thing

Could there be a trend a-brewing in Mega Millions? The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made an appearance in the November 17th drawing. What’s interesting is that so far in November, this Pattern has only played on Fridays. In fact, this past Friday was the third Friday in a row. As the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has shown us in the past, there’s usually more to the story.

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 3, 26, 55, 58, 70, and MB 15, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has now played 133 times.

Encore at the Halfway Point

November 15th was an important day. It marked the halfway point of the month, and a reminder that (U.S.) Thanksgiving is right around the corner. To all you U.S. readers, don’t panic! You’ve got about a week left to make plans. Lottery-wise, Lotto Texas had all the fun.

Three-Number Combination(s)

The repeating Three-Number Combination lull continued Wednesday night.

Will the {4-1-1-1} Pattern go for a three-peat on Saturday? Will Powerball see a repeating Three-Number Combination?

 

Common or Not Common?

That is the question. The {3-2-1} Pattern made an appearance in the November 14th Mega Millions drawing. Those of you who follow our Lotto Texas posts know that the {3-2-1} Pattern is the most commonly seen there. But what of Mega Millions? Sure, the {3-2-1} Pattern doesn’t play as much as the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern (The King of Mega Millions Patterns), but it has a respectable showing. Right?

General Lottery Analysis

Well, when it comes to number of appearances, the {3-2-1} Pattern doesn’t even come close to the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern. Nor the {2-2-1-1} Pattern for that matter. With winning numbers 1, 14, 21, 22, 28, and MB 19, Tuesday’s drawing marked the 14th appearance of the Pattern. How fitting!

Making its sixth appearance was the [2-3-1] General Order. This has now played in 42.9% of the 14 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.96% of all 306 drawings. Prior to Tuesday night, this General Order was seen on January 6th, 2017. We reconfigured this General Order from the [2-1-2-1] General Order from that night.

Something New for Saturday

Veteran’s Day/Remembrance Day is a time to remember the veterans of wars past and present. Perhaps it was fitting that neither Lotto Texas nor Powerball saw Pattern encores November 11th. One Lottery saw its most common Pattern. The other Pattern, while not nearly so common, has had decent showings.
