{2-2-1-1} Keeps It Chill

After Sunday’s report on Lotto Texas and Powerball, Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing brought things down to Earth. We didn’t see any new Specific Orders play, nor did we see the {4-1-1} Pattern repeat. What we did see was a more commonly played Pattern.

The winning numbers for the July 26th, 2016 Mega Millions drawing were 1, 4, 31, 36, 54, and MB 9.

As we look ahead to Friday’s drawing, will the {2-2-1-1} Pattern begin to play catch-up, or will another Pattern play?
