Calmly Wandering into a Three-Peat

Compared to what happened this past Friday, Mega Millions was mostly calm the night of June 6th. Mostly? Well, a bit of that Friday night charm rubbed off. Friday night’s Pattern not only made an encore appearance, but has now appeared three times in a row! Did the General Order and Specific Order get a touch of Friday night as well, or did they do their own thing?

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 156th appearance, with winning numbers 3, 5, 16, 49, 75, and MB 5.


This Pattern has now played in 41.2% of the 379 Mega Millions drawings, and remains the most commonly seen Pattern.

The [2-1-1-1-1] General Order made its 38th appearance, and has now played in 24.4% of the 156 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This General Order has also played in approximately 10% of all Mega Millions drawings. Unlike this occurrence of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order was last seen in the May 23rd drawing.

Making its tenth appearance, the 2 1 0 1 1 1 Specific Order has played in 26.3% of the 38 drawings where the [2-1-1-1-1] General Order has appeared. When looking at the 156 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, this becomes 6.41% of the time, and 2.64% when looking at all 379 drawings. Prior to Tuesday night, this Specific Order was last seen in the October 25th, 2016 drawing.

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations Tuesday night, but will there be at least one on Friday night? Will the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern dare to go for a “four-peat”?
