The 4-1-1 on the {4-1-1} Pattern

Any hopes for a {2-2-1-1} Pattern streak were dashed in the June 12th drawing. Additionally, there was no jackpot winner, and the prize now stands at $161 million. Nonetheless, Mega Millions saw a shake up, and Lottery Binge has the 4-1-1 on Tuesday’s drawing. For starters, there were a couple of 4-1-1’s.

General Lottery Analysis

The first 4-1-1, of course, was the {4-1-1} Pattern. Its tenth appearance was thanks to winning numbers 1, 3, 5, 8, 70 and MB 3.

As of the 366th Mega Millions drawing, this Pattern has played 2.73% of the time. The {4-1-1} Pattern was last seen on May 4th, 2018.

The second 4-1-1 was the [4-1-1] General Order. With its sixth appearance, this General Order has now played in 60% of the ten drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. When looking at all 366 drawings, this General Order has played 1.64% of the time. Fun fact: The [4-1-1] General Order played alongside the {4-1-1} Pattern in the earlier-mentioned May 4th drawing.

Tuesday’s drawing saw the debut of the 4 0 0 0 1 1 Specific Order. With that said, this Specific Order has played in roughly 16.7% of the six drawings where the General Order was [4-1-1]. This Specific Order has also now played in 10% of the ten drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.27% of all 366 drawings.

Three Number Combination(s)

Nothing like a repeating Three-Number Combination to keep things “shook up”! The lone Combination was 1, 5, 8.

This Combination made its debut in the September 23rd, 2016 drawing.

Will there be another shakeup in Friday’s drawing? Could the {4-1-1} Pattern be daring enough to make an encore?

The One Where Uncommonly Seen Patterns Were Unearthed

Two things reached the stratosphere May 16th: The Houston Rockets and the Powerball jackpot. Nobody won the big prize Wednesday night, and as I write this post, the jackpot is now an outstanding $306 million. There was a winner in Lotto Texas, one who is now $30.2 million richer. Regardless of whether a winner came forth, a couple of rarities were unearthed, one for each lottery.

Even rarer than the {3-3} Pattern in Lotto Texas is Powerball’s {4-1-1}. After Wednesday night’s drawing, the {4-1-1} Pattern has made a grand total of five appearances. The winning numbers were 17, 19, 21, 22, 51, and PB 19.

This Specific Order has also played in 20% of the five drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.37% of all 273 drawings.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Will either of these rare Patterns make an encore Saturday night?

 

Cuatro-Uno-Uno

The (possibly) gratuitous Spanish is thanks to Cinco de Mayo. Whether to commemorate the Mexican army’s victory over the French or a day to go crazy with margaritas, it’s more than “just” a holiday. Mega Millions didn’t have the honor of playing on Cinco de Mayo (that was last year), but the May 4th drawing kicked off the festive weekend.

With winning numbers 4, 5, 10, 12, 18, and MB 21, the {4-1-1} Pattern played for the ninth time.

Given that there have been 355 Mega Millions drawings, this Pattern has now played in 2.54% of them. We last saw this Pattern in the February 20th, 2018 drawing.

The [4-1-1] General Order, with five appearances now, has played in 55.6% of the nine drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. This General Order also accompanied said Pattern in the February 20th drawing mentioned earlier. And, out of the 355 drawings so far, the [4-1-1] General Order has played in 1.41% of them.

Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing saw the debut of the 4 1 0 0 0 1 Specific Order. This means that it has now played in 20% of the five drawings where the General Order of the evening was [4-1-1]. The Specific Order has also played in 11.1% of the nine drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.28% of all 355 drawings.

Three Number Combination(s)

In addition to the debut of a new Specific Order, there was also one repeating Three-Number Combination:

Will the {4-1-1} Pattern make an encore appearance in Tuesday’s drawing?

Being Green

St. Patrick’s Day. A holiday that, believe it or not, is more popular in the United States than it is in Ireland. Other words that come to mind for that day are usually “green”, “shamrock”, or “Guinness”. This year, Lotto Texas and Powerball had the honor of holding their drawings on St. Patrick’s Day. Well, night, technically. And what a night it was!

The {3-2-1} Pattern went for the three-peat with winning numbers 4, 25, 26, 38, 48, and 49.

This Specific Order has also played in 25% of the four drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Finally, when looking at all 256 drawings, this Specific Order has played 0.39% of the time.

Three-Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

Will the {3-2-1} Pattern continue its streak in Lotto Texas Wednesday night? Could Powerball see repeating Three-Number Combinations?

 

Serve It Up Rare

Nothing else this month has come close to topping the madness of February 9th. At least, until the February 20th drawing. Instead of going for a heavy hitter like a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore, or even another similar spread, Mega Millions chose a different path. It’s not a commonly taken path, but it can yield great results.

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 17, 19, 23, 24, 43, and MB 14, the rarely-seen {4-1-1} Pattern made its eighth appearance.

This Specific Order has also played in 12.5% of the eight drawings where {4-1-1} was the winning Pattern. When looking at all 334 drawings, the 0 4 0 1 0 1 Specific Order has played roughly 0.3% of the time.

Three Number Combination(s)

A rare Pattern was enough, it seems. There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will Friday see a {4-1-1} repeat, or will another, more common Pattern take the spotlight?

Grounded

The buzz has died down in Powerball. With only one winner of the $559 million jackpot, the prize returned to a more “acceptable” level. Even without crazy-high jackpots, January 10th was a good night for Lotto Texas and Powerball fans who dig repeating Combinations.

Will either the {4-1-1} Pattern or {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore Saturday night?

 

The 4-1-1 on Mega Millions

Time flies by, doesn’t it? With only a few weeks left in 2017, let’s take moment to reflect:

  • Another {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak happened over the summer.
  • A new system was implemented early last month. Instead of 75 “regular” balls and 15 Mega Balls, we now have 70 “regular” balls and 25 Mega Balls. We call the new system 70-25.

With this new system, there have been 314 drawings. Of those drawings, this is the first one to have the uncommonly-seen {4-1-1} Pattern.

General Lottery Analysis

The December 12th drawing saw winning numbers 8, 23, 24, 25, 27, and MB 9, bringing the number of appearances of the {4-1-1} to  seven.

Out came a rare Pattern. Source: lotterytrend-megamillions.com.

This Pattern has played 2.23% of the time, and was last seen in the March 28th, 2017 drawing. This was reconfigured from the {3-1-1-1} Pattern seen that night.

Tuesday night also saw the fourth appearance of the [1-4-1] General Order. This General Order has played in 57.1% of the seven drawings where the {4-1-1} Pattern has appeared. When looking at all 314 Mega Millions drawings, the [1-4-1] General Order has played in 1.27% of them. We last saw this General Order in the June 10th, 2016 drawing. This wasn’t reconfigured from anything.

The 1 4 0 0 0 1 Specific Order made its world debut! At least, in the 70-25 system. Under said system, this Specific Order has played in 25% of the four drawings where the [1-4-1] General Order has appeared. It has also played in 14.3% of the seven drawings where the {4-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 0.32% of all drawings. The 1 4 0 0 0 1 Specific Order did appear in the old 75-15 system, having been seen in the July 22nd, 2016 drawing. That Specific Order was reconfigured to 1 3 1 0 0 1 so it would comply with the 70-25 system.

Three Number Combination(s)

The rarely-seen {4-1-1} Pattern was accompanied by two repeating Three-Number Combinations.

  • 8, 24, 25 (Debuted July 22nd, 2016)

Will Friday’s drawing feature another rarely-seen Pattern?

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.

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?

 

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.

Lotto Texas

With winning numbers 16, 19, 21, 22, 36, and 53, the {4-1-1} Pattern made its 164th appearance.
