In Like a {2-2-1-1}

Ah, March. Spring is coming soon, if it’s not here already, and there are many things to look forward to:

And of course, more Mega Millions coverage. Once again, it had the honor of kicking off a month (see February). Although March 2nd was quieter than what we saw lately, it wasn’t a sleepy night.

The [2-1-2-1] General Order, now with 29 appearances, has played in 30.2% of the 96 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern. When looking at all 337 drawings, this General Order has played 8.61% of the time. Like the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, the [2-1-2-1] General Order previously played on February 13th.

Could it be that Mega Millions kicked off the month with a playback? Let’s see what the Specific Order did.

With two appearances, the 0 2 1 0 2 1 Specific Order has now played in 6.90% of the 29 drawings where the General Order was [2-1-2-1].  This Specific Order has also played in 2.08% of the 96 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern, and in 0.59% of all 337 drawings. A playback wasn’t meant to be. The 0 2 1 0 2 1 Specific Order made its debut in the March 27th, 2015 drawing. This was reconfigured from the  0 2 1 1 1 1 Specific Order seen that night, and the winning numbers were 17, 21, 36, 58, 70, and MB 3.

Three Number Combination(s)
