February Huff n’ Puff

In our last Mega Millions post, we were wondering whether the February 10th drawing would be low-key or an explosion of numbers. Although it was a far cry from the six-peat we saw last summer, or even an Australia Play, Friday’s drawing had a bit more oomph to it.

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 108th appearance, with winning numbers 32, 39, 51, 62, 75 and MB 14.

This Pattern has now played in 31.2% of the 346 drawings to date, and was seen exactly one week prior in the February 3rd drawing. Unlike the {2-2-1-1} Pattern in Powerball, this {2-2-1-1} Pattern has a way to go before catching up to the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern.

The [2-1-2-1] General Order made its 39th appearance, its first since the January 31st, 2017 drawing. This General Order has now played in 36.1% of the 108 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 11.3% of all drawings.

Next, the 0 0 2 1 2 1 Specific Order played for the fourth time. This Specific Order has now played in 10.3% of the 39 drawings where the [2-1-2-1] Pattern has appeared, 3.70% of the 108 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern appeared, and in 1.16% of all drawings. Prior to Friday’s drawing, the 0 0 2 1 2 1 Specific Order previously played in the April 8th, 2016 drawing ten months ago.

The biggest event in an otherwise low-key evening was the repeat appearance of two Three-Number Combinations:

  • 39, 51, and 75, which debuted in the January 8th, 2016 drawing, and
  • 39, 51, and MB 14, which debuted in the May 9th, 2014 drawing

The next Mega Millions drawing falls on Valentine’s Day. Will someone strike the jackpot, or will those numbers cause broken hearts?
