A Wisp of Valentine’s

Valentine’s Day has come and gone on the calendar, but Mega Millions had other plans! The little bit of Valentine’s Day wasn’t the only thing we saw in the February 21, 2017 drawing. We saw not one, but two repeating Three-Number Combinations, one of which in fact has appeared twice before!

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 139th appearance, with winning numbers 9, 21, 30, 32, 75, MB 9.

This Pattern has now played in 39.8% of the 349 drawings thus far and was last seen exactly one week prior in the February 14, 2017 drawing.

The [1-2-1-1-1] General Order made its 40th appearance, its first since the November 15, 2016 drawing. This General Order has played in 28.8% of the 139 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 11.5% of all drawings.

The Specific Order of the evening was 1 2 1 0 1 1, making its ninth appearance. As of Tuesday’s drawing, this Specific Order has played in 22.5% of the 40 drawings where the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order appeared, 6.47% of the 139 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern had appeared, and in 2.59% of all drawings. To see when the 1 2 1 0 1 1 Specific Order was last seen, we need to go back to the August 9, 2016.

And now for the biggest draw of the evening: the repeating Three-Number Combinations! The Combinations were

  • 9, 21, 75 (Debuted October 9, 2015)
  • 21, 30, MB 9 (Previously played September 29th, 2015 and September 30, 2016)
The 2x Three-Number Combination is in the red box. The 3x Combination is in the blue box.

With one week to go before Mardi Gras, Mega Millions had turned it up a notch. Will the momentum continue to build up, or will Friday night be a night of rest?
