Black Friday Rumblings

The Christmas season officially began in Lottery Trend Country with Black Friday. People far and wide crowded the malls and the big box stores for discounts and simply knocking out some, or all, their Christmas shopping. Mega Millions, having held out on us last time, gifted us with an interesting development.

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance. Its 99th appearance was thanks to winning numbers 44, 47, 49, 69, 75, and MB 10.

As of November 25th, 2016, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has played in approximately 30.6% of the 324 drawings. Recall that this Pattern previously played earlier this week in the November 22nd drawing.

The [1-2-2-1] General Order made its 28th appearance, and it also previously played in the November 22nd drawing. The [1-2-2-1] General Order has played in 28.3% of the 99 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern played, and 8.64% of all Mega Millions drawings.

Next, the 0 0 1 2 2 1 Specific Order played for the third time. This Specific Order has now played in 10.7% of the 28 drawings where the [1-2-2-1] General Order has played. Going further, the 0 0 1 2 2 1 Specific Order has played in 3.03% of the 99 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern played and 0.926% of all drawings. Prior to Friday’s drawing, the 0 0 1 2 2 1 Specific Order previously played in the August 12th, 2014 drawing.

We saw a Three-Number Combination repeat, thanks to numbers 44, 69, and MB 10.

This Combination made its debut August 12th, 2016, exactly two years after the Specific Order’s prior appearance. A development like this does not happen very often.

As we begin to wrap up November, what will Mega Millions gift us with next week?
