Mid-Month Breather

Christmas is fast approaching. Kids have been let out for the holiday, or soon will be, and Christmas shopping madness will be ratcheting up. Perhaps it was a good thing that Mega Millions decided to gift us with a breather.

The December 16th drawing was the 22nd appearance of the {3-2-1} Pattern. This not oft-seen Pattern was thanks to winning numbers 1, 8, 15, 36, 43, and MB 6.

The {3-2-1} Pattern has now played in 6.67% of the 330 Mega Millions drawings to date. Prior to Friday’s drawing, we last saw this Pattern on November 18, 2016.

The [3-2-1] General Order made its 10th appearance, its first since the November 8, 2016 drawing. As of Friday’s drawing, this General Order has appeared in approximately 45.5% of the 22 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern played, and in 3.03% of all drawings.

The highlight of this otherwise quiet evening was the debut of the 3 0 2 0 0 1 Specific Order. With that said, this Specific Order has now appeared in 10% of the 10 drawings where the [3-2-1] General Order has played, 4.55% of the 22 drawings where the {3-2-1} Pattern has played, and 0.30% of all drawings.

As we look ahead to the last week of Christmas shopping, will Mega Millions gift us with more rarely-seen plays? Will another Specific Order make its debut?
