Summer Callbacks

Even after achieving a milestone in last Friday’s drawing, Mega Millions continued to keep its composure Tuesday night. Homework’s being assigned in droves and the football displays clash with the fall/Halloween décor. And yet, in spite of the inevitable change of seasons, Mega Millions asserts that summer isn’t over yet. The September 6th, 2016 drawing had not just a Pattern, but a General Order and a Specific Order that played some time during the summer.

The winning numbers from Tuesday’s drawing were 25, 37, 58, 69, 75, and MB 8.

Now having made its 119th appearance, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern holds onto its position as the most commonly seen Mega Millions Pattern, making its first appearance since August 30th.  With 301 drawings to date, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has now played 39.5% of the time.

The [1-1-1-2-1] General Order played for the 27th time, making its first appearance since August 16th. Out of the 119 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern played, the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order has played 22.7% of the time. This becomes 8.97% of the time when we look at all 301 drawings to date.

The 0 1 1 1 2 1 Specific Order made its 7th appearance, and out of the 27 drawings where the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order played, this Specific Order has played 25.9% of the time. When looking at the 119 drawings in which the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played, the 0 1 1 1 2 1 Specific Order has played 5.88% of the time. Finally, when looking at all 301 Mega Millions drawings to date, we get 2.33%. The 0 1 1 1 2 1 Specific Order actually played just a couple of days before our humble little lottery blog launched: May 27th, 2016. While not technically summer, it’s pretty darn close.

We now come to the Three-Number Combination of 25, 58, and 69, making its second appearance.

The first time this Combination played was back on February 3rd, 2015.

Will Mega Millions continue to keep a cool head as we head into Friday, or will it get its own frenzy going?
