So What’s the 4-1-1? Mega Millions Edition

Even though we’re halfway through the month of July, it looks like June has found its way back into Mega Millions. Apparently, June likes to come and go!

Mega Millions had the {4-1-1} Pattern, making it the tenth appearance. Given that there have been 286 drawings to date, the {4-1-1} Pattern has played 3.75% of the time. This Pattern previously played on June 10th, 2016.

The winning numbers followed the [1-4-1] General Order, and its total number of appearances is now five. Out of the 10 times the {4-1-1} Pattern has played, this General Order has played 50% of the time. Taking all 286 Mega Millions drawings into account, the [1-4-1] General Order has played 1.75% of the time. The [1-4-1] General Order also played in the June 10th, 2016 Mega Millions drawing.

So what of the Specific Order? Did the ghost of this past June pay it a visit as well?

It turns out that that wasn’t the case. In fact, the 0 1 0 4 0 1 Specific Order made its first appearance last night! Since the 0 1 0 4 0 1 Specific Order has only made one appearance, it’s only played 20% of the time the [1-4-1] General Order has played. This becomes 10% if we consider the 10 drawings in which the {4-1-1} Pattern has played. Finally, if we look at all 286 drawings to date, the 0 1 0 4 0 1 Specific Order has only played 0.35% of the time.

Looking ahead to next week, will we see a repeat of the {4-1-1} Pattern or will another Pattern play? Will we see the debut of other Specific Orders?
