Adding a Little Spice

As more cold air enters Lottery Trend country, Mega Millions heated up a bit in the December 6th drawing. Tuesday’s drawing not only gifted us with the most commonly seen Pattern, but a repeating Three-Number Combination!

Unlike the {2-1-1-1-1} in Powerball, the {2-1-1-1-1} in Mega Millions is in no danger of being upstaged anytime soon. With 130 appearances, this Pattern has appeared in 31.5% of the 327 drawings. The 130th appearance was made possible by winning numbers 13, 34, 48, 53, 63, and MB 12.

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern previously played last month in the November 15th drawing.

The [1-1-2-1-1] General Order made its 30th appearance, its first since the November 4th, 2016 drawing. As of Tuesday, this General Order has appeared in 23.1% of the 130 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played, and 9.17% of the 327 drawings to date.

Next, the 1 0 1 2 1 1 Specific Order played for the eighth time. With that said, this Specific Order has now appeared in approximately 26.7% of the 30 drawings where the [1-1-2-1-1] General order has played. The 1 0 1 2 1 1 Specific Order has also appeared in 6.15% of the 130 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has played, and in 2.45% of all Mega Millions drawings. Prior to Tuesday’s drawing, we last saw the 1 0 1 2 1 1 Specific Order on October 28th, 2016.

Last, but certainly not least, we saw the Three-Number Combination 48, 53, and MB 12 make a repeat appearance.

This Combination made its debut in the November 8th, 2016 drawing.

What will Friday’s drawing have in store? Will a rarely-seen Pattern get to play, or will the {2-1-1-1-1} make an encore? Will we see another repeating Three-Number Combination?
