New Trend on the Block

Third time is not the charm. For the past two Mega Millions drawings, the winning Pattern was a {3-1-1-1}. Instead, Tuesday night saw the appearance of a {2-2-1-1} Pattern. The winning numbers for June 7th are as follows: 25, 48, 51, 65, 72, and a Mega Ball of 4.

This particular pattern has played 88 times out of 275 drawings to date. Statistically speaking, it has played 32% of the time. In fact, it’s the second-most common pattern to date. The most common pattern? We’ll tell you on a future date.

Since we have a new pattern, it’s time to go over General Orders. Given that we have a {2-2-1-1} Pattern, you can have any of the following General Orders:

[1-2-2-1]

[2-1-2-1]

[2-2-1-1]

Our winning numbers played in the [1-2-2-1] General Order. Given that there have been 275 drawings to date, this General Order has played 22 times, giving a stat so far of 8%. To date, it’s the least commonly drawn General Order for this particular Pattern. Yet, it looks nice and even, doesn’t it?

And now it’s time to break it down further. This particular General Order saw the following Specific Order:

0 1 0 2 2 1

Out of the 22 times this General Order has played, this Specific Order has played…twice. Yes, twice. There are, in fact, Specific Orders that haven’t played at all so far. But, as we said in the June 4th post, everything repeats, given enough time. This Specific Order/General Order will play again. This General Order will play again. When it plays again, will it have the same Specific Order, or will a brand new one play?
