Candy, Champagne, and Numbers

Ah, Valentine’s Day. Not only does it mark the halfway point in February, it’s a day of love and romance. It’s a day of makeups and breakups, a day full of chocolates, cards, candy, and…Mega Millions? Well, yes! This year, a Mega Millions drawing fell on this holiday. Grab that box of chocolates and take a gander at the analysis for the February 14th, 2017 drawing. Leftover champagne drinking is optional.

Tuesday’s winning Pattern was the {2-1-1-1-1}, having made its 138th appearance. The winning numbers were 7, 11, 33, 60, 68, and MB 15.

Like the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order was also previously seen on February 7th. Now with 36 appearances, this General Order has played in 26.1% of the 138 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 10.4% of all drawings.

The 2 0 1 1 1 1 Specific Order made its eighth appearance, its first since the August 2nd, 2016 drawing. As of Tuesday, this Specific Order has played in approximately 22.2% of the 36 drawings where the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order has appeared, 5.80% of the 138 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 2.31% of all drawings.

For those of you who are positively in love with repeating Three-Number Combinations, you’re in luck! The Three-Number Combination 11, 68, and MB 15 made its second appearance.

This Combination made its debut in the October 14th, 2014 drawing.

As we march onward through the second half of February, will the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore, or will a rarely seen Pattern get a shot? Will there be a lull before a Mardi Gras explosion?
