Embracing Normality

Thanksgiving is fast approaching in Lottery Trend Country and people far and wide are making their preparations and debating on which team to root for that day. Mega Millions took a more measured approach. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern did not make an encore appearance, and there were no major plays nor upsets. The November 18th, 2016 Mega Millions drawing could be summed up with one word: “normal”, or what would pass as such.

The 21st appearance of the {3-2-1} Pattern was marked with winning numbers 31, 32, 49, 55, 58, and MB 15.

As of Friday, the {3-2-1} Pattern has played in 6.52% of all 322 drawings to date. We last saw this Pattern not too long ago in the November 8, 2016 drawing.

The [2-3-1] General Order made its twelfth appearance and was last seen in the November 1, 2016 drawing. With that said, the [2-3-1] Pattern has appeared in 57.1% of the 21 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has played and 3.73% of all 322 drawings.

Despite the normalcy exhibited by Friday’s drawing, the most extraordinary event of the evening was the debut of the 0 0 2 3 0 1 Specific Order. This now means that this Specific Order has played in approximately 8.33% of the 12 drawings that the [2-3-1] General Order has played. Going further, the 0 0 2 3 0 1 Specific Order has played in 4.76% of the 21 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern appeared, and 0.31% of all Mega Millions drawings.

Will Mega Millions continue to wrap itself in the comforting blanket of normality? Will there be an upset just in time for Thanksgiving, or even Black Friday?
