A Peaceful Good Friday

Happy Easter, Lottery Binge readers! In the last Mega Millions post, there were no major upsets or big plays to be had. The April 14th drawing continued the trend of a quiet evening. Like Tuesday’s drawing, there were no new Specific Orders or rare Patterns. In one respect, Friday’s drawing was even more low-key; there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 110th appearance, with winning numbers 5, 10, 55, 60, 73, and MB 12.

Winning Mega Millions numbers

This Pattern has now played in 30.2% of the 364 Mega Millions drawings to date. Prior to Friday, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern was previously seen in the February 17th, 2017 drawing.

The General Order of the evening was [2-2-1-1]. Now with 39 appearances, this General Order has appeared in 35.5% of the 110 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared. In addition, this General Order has played in 10.7% of all drawings. The [2-2-1-1] General Order previously played in the February 3rd, 2017 drawing.

Next is the 2 0 0 2 1 1 Specific Order, making its fifth appearance. This Specific Order has now played in 12.8% of the 39 drawings where the [2-2-1-1] General Order appeared, and 4.55% of the 110 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared. When taking all 364 drawings into account, this statistic becomes 1.37%. To see when the 2 0 0 2 1 1 Specific Order previously played, we need to go back to the June 24th, 2016 drawing, which was nearly 10 months ago.

As we look to the week ahead, will there be new Specific Orders? Will an Australia Play surface?

Resting Up Before Mardi Gras

In our last Mega Millions post, we were wondering if we would see the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore or if a rare Pattern would get exposure. Alas, these did not come to pass. With Mardi Gras coming on February 28th, Mega Millions got the idea to rest up a bit on Friday night.

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 109th appearance in the February 17th drawing. The winning numbers were 4, 56, 58, 67, 75, and MB 8.

Winning Mega Millions numbers. From lotterytrend-megamillions.com.

This Pattern has now played in 31.3% of the 348 drawings, and previously played exactly one week prior on February 10th . The {2-2-1-1} Pattern remained the second-most commonly seen Pattern. Unlike “sister” Powerball, it will be a while yet before it catches up to the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern.

The [1-2-2-1] General Order played for the 32nd time. As of Friday, this General Order has played in 29.4% of the 109 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 9.2% of all Mega Millions drawings. We last saw the [1-2-2-1] General Order earlier this year in the January 3rd drawing.

Next, we have the 1 0 0 2 2 1 Specific Order, now having made three appearances. This Specific Order has now played in 9.375% of the 32 drawings where the [1-2-2-1] General Order has appeared, 2.75% of the 109 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in in 0.86% of all drawings. To see when the 1 0 0 2 2 1 Specific Order previously played, we need to go back to the May 24th, 2016 drawing. For those of you who have been following our blog since the beginning, this was just before we launched.

And now, the conclusion of our Mega Millions analysis. Friday’s drawing gifted us with the repeating Three-Number Combination 58, 75, and MB 8, which debuted in the September 6th, 2016 drawing.

Will the {2-2-1-1} Pattern be the one to make an encore on Tuesday’s drawing?

February Huff n’ Puff

In our last Mega Millions post, we were wondering whether the February 10th drawing would be low-key or an explosion of numbers. Although it was a far cry from the six-peat we saw last summer, or even an Australia Play, Friday’s drawing had a bit more oomph to it.

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 108th appearance, with winning numbers 32, 39, 51, 62, 75 and MB 14.

This Pattern has now played in 31.2% of the 346 drawings to date, and was seen exactly one week prior in the February 3rd drawing. Unlike the {2-2-1-1} Pattern in Powerball, this {2-2-1-1} Pattern has a way to go before catching up to the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern.

The [2-1-2-1] General Order made its 39th appearance, its first since the January 31st, 2017 drawing. This General Order has now played in 36.1% of the 108 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 11.3% of all drawings.

Next, the 0 0 2 1 2 1 Specific Order played for the fourth time. This Specific Order has now played in 10.3% of the 39 drawings where the [2-1-2-1] Pattern has appeared, 3.70% of the 108 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern appeared, and in 1.16% of all drawings. Prior to Friday’s drawing, the 0 0 2 1 2 1 Specific Order previously played in the April 8th, 2016 drawing ten months ago.

The biggest event in an otherwise low-key evening was the repeat appearance of two Three-Number Combinations:

  • 39, 51, and 75, which debuted in the January 8th, 2016 drawing, and
  • 39, 51, and MB 14, which debuted in the May 9th, 2014 drawing

The next Mega Millions drawing falls on Valentine’s Day. Will someone strike the jackpot, or will those numbers cause broken hearts?

Pre-Game Numbers Extravaganza

Saturday night, oh what a night! People partied hard and started prepping for the even larger party taking place the next day. On the lottery side of things, Lotto Texas and Powerball had a blowout Super Bowl party of their own. Lotto Texas saw a not-often-seen Pattern that produced not only two repeating Four-Number Combinations, but one Combination that has now played three times. Powerball, on the other hand, saw a Pattern creep its way back up, and possibly give the current champion a run for its money in the Most Commonly Seen department.

Lotto Texas

The February 4th Lotto Texas drawing produced the 158th occurrence of the {4-2} Pattern. The winning numbers were 8, 13, 19, 25, 26, and 29.

This Pattern has now played in 11.1% of the 1418 drawings to date, and was last seen in the January 14th, 2017 drawing.

The 2 4 0 Specific Order made its 27th appearance, its first since the September 10th, 2016 drawing. This Specific Order has played in 17.1% of the 158 drawings where the {4-2} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.9% of all Lotto Texas drawings.

Lotto Texas’s biggest play of the evening was the repeat appearance of two Four-Number Combinations. These Combinations were:

While we didn’t see anything that hadn’t played since the Napster days, seeing a Four-Number Combination play three times is impressive!

Powerball

Powerball didn’t have any repeating Three-Number Combinations, and it looks like the {2-2-1-1} Pattern is slowly catching up to the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern in the number of appearances. Saturday’s drawing was the 46th appearance of the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, with winning numbers 6, 13, 16, 17, 52, and PB 25.

This Pattern has now played in 32.9% of the 140 Powerball drawings to date. We last saw this Pattern in the January 21st, 2017 drawing. We’ll need to keep an eye on {2-2-1-1}; if this Pattern makes an encore in Wednesday’s drawing, it won’t be the first time it has tied with {2-1-1-1-1} for most plays!

Moving on, the [2-2-1-1] General Order made its eighteenth appearance. Like the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, the [2-2-1-1] General Order was also last seen in the January 21st drawing. This General Order has played in 39.1% of the 46 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 12.9% of all drawings.

Our Powerball coverage concludes with the 2 2 0 1 0 1 Specific Order making its fifth appearance. This Specific Order has now played in 27.8% of the 18 drawings where the [2-2-1-1] General Order has appeared, 10.9% of the 46 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 3.57% of all drawings. Prior to Saturday, the 2 2 0 1 0 1 Specific Order was last seen in the November 30th, 2016 drawing.

As we look ahead to next week, will the {2-2-1-1} Pattern make an encore in Powerball? Will Lotto Texas see another Four-Number Combination make its third-ever appearance?

 

Touchdown, Mega Millions

Lottery Trend country is fully in the grips of Super Bowl weekend. Mega Millions itself may be impartial to whichever team wins, and (thankfully) can’t get fat from all the Super Bowl treats, but that didn’t mean it couldn’t mark the occasion in its own way. How, you wonder? The February 3rd drawing saw an encore appearance of Tuesday’s Pattern, and saw a Three-Number Combination repeat!

For those who you keeping score, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern from Tuesday night played again in Friday’s drawing. This time around, the winning numbers were 3, 6, 29, 30, 64, and MB 3.

Now with 107 appearances, this Pattern has played in 31.1% of the 344 Mega Millions drawings to date. While impressive, it still has a ways to go before even thinking about overtaking the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, which has played 136 times.

Getting back to the {2-2-1-1} Pattern now, the [2-2-1-1] General Order made its 38th appearance. This General Order has now played in 35.5% of the 107 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in approximately 11% of all drawings. We haven’t seen the [2-2-1-1] General Order in quite some time; it last appeared in the July 26th, 2016 drawing.

If you thought six months (give or take a week) was a long time for a General Order to play again, then the 2 2 0 0 1 1 Specific Order hadn’t been seen for a little over a year. This Specific Order previously played in the November 17th, 2015 drawing. Now having played seven times, the 2 2 0 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 18.4% of the 38 drawings where the [2-2-1-1] General Order has appeared, 6.54% of the 107 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 2.03% of all drawings.

One of the biggest plays of the night was a repeat appearance of the Three-Number Combination 29, 64, and MB 3, which made its debut in the December 6th, 2013 drawing.

Whether you’re a football fan, or just watching for the halftime show, inquiring minds want to know just one thing. Will the {2-2-1-1} Pattern go for a three-peat?

January in the Rear View Mirror

January has now come and gone. The days are getting longer (or shorter, depending on where you live), the Super Bowl is a few days away, and spring is just around the corner (right?). Mega Millions was the lucky lottery to end the month this year. While not a big blowout, the month did end on a high note, especially for those of you out there hoping for a repeating Three-Number Combination. Was it the Combination you were hoping for? Let’s find out!

The January 31st, 2017 drawing marked the 106th appearance of the {2-2-1-1} Pattern with winning numbers 3, 14, 27, 62, 72, and MB 4.

This Pattern has now played in 30.9% of the 343 Mega Millions drawings to date. We last saw the {2-2-1-1} Pattern earlier in the month on January 6th.

The [2-1-2-1] General Order made is 38th appearance, and like the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, previously played on January 6th. This General Order has now played in 35.8% of the 106 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has played, and in 11.1% of the 343 drawings.

The 2 1 0 0 2 1 Specific Order played for the fourth time, making its first appearance since the February 26th, 2016 drawing. This Specific Order has also played in 10.5% of the 38 drawings where the [2-1-2-1] General Order has played, 3.77% of the 106 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has played, and 1.17% of the 343 drawings.

The repeating Three-Number Combination of the evening was 14, 72, and MB 4, which made its debut in the September 27th, 2016 drawing.

Encores and Debuts

In an interesting turn of events, Saturday’s Lotto Texas drawing was an encore through-and-through. Of course, the numbers were different this time around. Meanwhile, Powerball saw a Specific Order make its debut.

Lotto Texas

The {3-3} Pattern made an encore appearance in the January 21st drawing. The winning numbers this time around were 2, 13, 17, 39, 41, and 46.

Now with 121 appearances, this Pattern has played in 8.56% of the 1414 Lotto Texas drawings. Recall that we last saw the {3-3} Pattern in Wednesday’s drawing.

Like the {3-3} Pattern, the 3 0 3 Specific Order also made its last appearance in Wednesday’s drawing. With 43 appearances, this Specific Order has played in 35.5% of the 121 drawings where the {3-3} Pattern has appeared, and in 3.04% of all drawings.

Our Lotto Texas coverage concludes with the appearance of repeating Four-Number Combination 2, 13, 17, and 39.

To see when this Combination debuted, we need to go back to September 24th, 2008. Eight years and three (going on four) months is quite a length of time to go before appearing again. Then again, that’s nothing compared to what we have seen.

Powerball

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 45th appearance, with winning numbers 23, 25, 45, 52, 67, and PB 2.

This Pattern has played in 33.1% of the 136 Powerball drawings and was last seen in the New Year’s Eve drawing.

The [2-2-1-1] General Order made its 17th appearance, bringing its play tally up to 37.8% of the 45 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and 11.6% of all drawings. Prior to Saturday, we last saw the [2-2-1-1] General Order in the December 14th, 2016 drawing.

Saturday’s drawing marked the debut of the 0 2 0 2 1 1 1 Specific Order. This Specific Order has played in 5.89% of the 17 drawings where the [2-2-1-1] General Order has appeared. Additionally, it has played in 2.22% of the 45 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 0.68% of all drawings.

The repeating Three-Number Combination of the evening was 23, 25, and 67.

This Three-Number Combination debuted May 18th, 2016, just a few days before Lottery Binge launched.

The last full week of January is upon us, and for our U.S. readers, there are only two weeks left before the Super Bowl. Will Lotto Texas and Powerball continue to go for big plays and the unexpected, or will they mellow out?
