January in the Rear View Mirror

January has now come and gone. The days are getting longer (or shorter, depending on where you live), the Super Bowl is a few days away, and spring is just around the corner (right?). Mega Millions was the lucky lottery to end the month this year. While not a big blowout, the month did end on a high note, especially for those of you out there hoping for a repeating Three-Number Combination. Was it the Combination you were hoping for? Let’s find out!

The January 31st, 2017 drawing marked the 106th appearance of the {2-2-1-1} Pattern with winning numbers 3, 14, 27, 62, 72, and MB 4.

This Pattern has now played in 30.9% of the 343 Mega Millions drawings to date. We last saw the {2-2-1-1} Pattern earlier in the month on January 6th.

The [2-1-2-1] General Order made is 38th appearance, and like the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, previously played on January 6th. This General Order has now played in 35.8% of the 106 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has played, and in 11.1% of the 343 drawings.

The 2 1 0 0 2 1 Specific Order played for the fourth time, making its first appearance since the February 26th, 2016 drawing. This Specific Order has also played in 10.5% of the 38 drawings where the [2-1-2-1] General Order has played, 3.77% of the 106 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has played, and 1.17% of the 343 drawings.

The repeating Three-Number Combination of the evening was 14, 72, and MB 4, which made its debut in the September 27th, 2016 drawing.
