The September 300

September is upon us once again. The days are getting shorter, or longer for those of you reading in the Southern Hemisphere, football is starting back up, and the last group of kids are heading back to class. In Lottery World, September for Mega Millions began as calmly as August ended. There were no major upsets, repeats, or throwbacks to a time long gone on September 2nd. However, Mega Millions quietly reached a milestone: 300 drawings (and counting)! And by “300th”, we mean “The 300th drawing with number balls 1 through 75 and Mega Balls (MBs) 1 through 15.”

Friday’s 300th Drawing Spectacular ™ was thanks to 22, 28, 41, 46, 60, and MB 3.

This was the 95th appearance of the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, its first since August 23rd. Given the 300 drawings in Mega Millions, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has now played 31.7% of the time.

The [2-1-2-1] General Order played for the 34th time, and, like the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, made its first appearance since August 23rd. Of the 95 drawings in which the {2-2-1-1} Pattern played, the [2-1-2-1] General Order has played 35.8% of the time. This becomes 11.3% when we take all 300 drawings into account.

This gave way to the 0 2 1 2 0 1 Specific Order making its fifth appearance. In contrast to the General Order and Pattern of the evening, the 0 2 1 2 0 1 Specific Order was last seen at the beginning of the year (January 22nd). Given the 34 drawings in which the [2-1-2-1] General Order appeared, the 0 2 1 2 0 1 Specific Order has now played 14.7% of the time. This becomes 5.26% of the time when looking at the 95 {2-2-1-1} drawings and 1.67% when looking at all 300.

Finally, we come to the second appearance of the Three-Number Combination 41, 60, and MB 3. The first time this Combination played was back on April 8th, 2014.

As we look ahead to next week, will things pick up for Mega Millions, or will the calmness continue?
