Night of the (Almost) Rhyme

The number of days until Christmas continues to wind down and Mega Millions added a little more fuel to the fire. Although the December 13th drawing wasn’t as explosive, it still stirred things up a bit.

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made an encore Tuesday night. Its 102nd appearance was made possible by winning numbers 2, 15, 26, 34, 41, and MB 14.

This Pattern has now played in 31% of the 329 Mega Millions drawings to date. Since this is an encore and all, we saw the {2-2-1-1} Pattern previously play in this past Friday’s drawing (December 9th).

The [2-1-2-1] General Order made its 36th appearance and it too played previously in the December 9th drawing. This General Order has now played in 35.3% of the 102 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern, and in 10.9% of all drawings.

Finally, we come to the 2 1 2 0 0 1 Specific Order, making its third appearance. As of Tuesday, this Specific Order has played in approximately 8.33% of the 36 drawings where the [2-1-2-1] General Order has appeared, 2.94% of the 102 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 0.91% of all Mega Millions drawings. Prior to Tuesday’s drawing, we last saw the 2 1 2 0 0 1 Specific Order on November 14th, 2014.

As we look ahead to the last Friday of sane Christmas shopping (the 23rd will be a nightmare), will the {2-2-1-1} go for a three-peat? Will someone get a huge Christmas bonus?
