Brought Back Down to Earth

Super Bowl LI has come and gone. The New England Patriots won another Super Bowl in what will be remembered as a historical game. As the excitement wore down and everyone went back to their lives, Mega Millions followed suit. Instead of a three-peat of the {2-2-1-1} Pattern, another Pattern played entirely. There were also no repeating Three-Number Combinations to speak of.

The February 7th, 2017 Mega Millions drawing gifted us with the 137th appearance of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern. The winning numbers this time around were 23, 28, 37, 56, 71, and MB 12.

This Pattern has now played in 39.7% of the 345 drawings to date. We last saw the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern in the January 27th, 2017 drawing.

Next, the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order made its 35th appearance, its first since the January 20th, 2017 drawing. This General Order has played in 25.5% of the 137 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 10.1% of all drawings.

Our Mega Millions coverage concludes with the 0 2 1 1 1 1 Specific Order, making its seventh appearance. As of Tuesday’s drawing, this Specific Order has played in 20% of the 35 drawings where the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order appeared, 5.11% of the 137 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern appeared, and in 2.03% of all drawings. The 0 2 1 1 1 1 Specific Order was last seen just two days before Christmas in the December 23rd, 2016 drawing.

Will Friday night’s drawing be low-key or will it be an explosive start to the weekend?
