New Month Order

As World Series hysteria reached its apex and the U.S. presidential campaigns entered the home stretch, Mega Millions once again came at us with its own brand of madness! While the Pattern we saw was a common one, we saw something unusual in the Three-Number Combinations. In fact, we here at Lottery Binge can say that the night of November 4th, 2016, is one for the Mega Millions history books.

Friday marked the 128th appearance of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern. The winning numbers were as follows: 10, 29, 32, 44, 46, and MB 10.

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has now played in 40.3% of the 318 drawings that have occurred so far. Prior to Friday’s drawing, we last saw this Pattern a week ago in the October 28th drawing.

The General Order of the evening was [1-1-2-1-1], now having made its 29th appearance. Like the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order was previously seen in the October 28th drawing. Out of the 128 drawings with {2-1-1-1-1} as the winning Pattern, the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order has played 22.7% of the time. When we look at all 318 drawings, this shrinks to 9.12%.

The 1 1 2 1 0 1 Specific Order made its ninth appearance, its first since the March 1st, 2016 drawing. Given that there are now 29 drawings with [1-1-2-1-1] as the General Order, the 1 1 2 1 0 1 Specific Order has played approximately 31% of the time. When taking the 128 drawings in which the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, the 1 1 2 1 0 1 Specific Order has played 7.03% of the time. This becomes 2.83% of the time when we look at all 318 drawings.

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for. There were four Three-Number Combinations that repeated, but here’s the catch.

Are you ready?

Some of these Combinations have played twice before!

To keep things a bit simpler, we’re going to break it down into the Three-Number Combinations that have appeared once before, and the Combinations that have played twice already.

The ones that have only played once before are:

  • 29, 32, and 46, which first played February 21st, 2014 and
  • 32, 46, and MB 10, which first played July 31st, 2015.

The ones that have played twice before are:

  • 10, 29, and MB 10, which first played March 4th, 2014 and again on May 19th, 2015, and
  • 29, 46, and MB 10, which first played June 27th, 2014 and again on July 5th, 2016.
The Three-Number Combinations that have played twice are highlighted in red. Combinations that have played three times are highlighted in blue.

As one historic week comes to an end and we enter another one, will there be other Three-Number Combinations that play for a third time? Will an extremely rare Pattern get its chance to play?
