The Streak is Gone

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern didn’t go for a sixth consecutive appearance in the July 7, 2017 drawing. If it had, then it would have tied the record set last summer. What a firework show that would have been! Nevertheless, Friday night’s drawing provided its own fireworks. Although a less common Pattern played, there was more bubbling underneath the surface.

The winning numbers were 2, 9, 11, 28, 60, and MB 10, bringing the total number of appearances of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern to 63.


This Pattern has played in 16.2% of the 388 Mega Millions drawings, and was last seen in the June 13, 2017 drawing.

Making its 22nd appearance, the [3-1-1-1] General Order has played in 34.9% of the 63 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 5.67% of all 388 drawings. Prior to Friday night, this General Order was last seen in the May 26, 2017 drawing.

Now with two appearances, the 3 1 0 1 0 1 Specific Order has played in approximately 9.09% of the 22 drawings where the [3-1-1-1] General Order has appeared, and in 3.17% of the 63 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 0.52% of all 388 drawings. The 3 1 0 1 0 1 Specific Order made its debut in the May 22, 2015 drawing.

Seeing a Specific Order that hadn’t played in over two years wasn’t the only big draw of the evening.

Friday night’s winning numbers share a similar spread with the May 23, 2014 drawing. That drawing’s winning numbers were 12, 14, 21, 38, 70, and MB 15, with a spread of 02:07:17:32. The spread from Friday night was 07:02:17:32. Note that while the difference between numbers was the same in both drawings, the order was different.

Another big draw was the repeat appearances of two Three-Number Combinations. The Combinations were

  • 2, 9, 11 (Debuted June 2, 2015)
  • 11, 60, MB 10 (Debuted March 17, 2017)

Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore appearance Tuesday? Will there be another similar spread next week?
