A Change of Pace

Time flies! It’s hard to believe, but July is almost over. With beach balls soon to be exchanged with backpacks, Mega Millions decided to switch things up again in the July 25, 2017 drawing. After four consecutive appearances of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, one wouldn’t be at fault for thinking the Pattern would show up again. After all, Lottery Binge has covered at least one scenario where this Pattern has played five times in a row. Alas, that was not to be. Another Pattern appeared, and there was also a repeating Three-Number Combination.

The winning numbers on Tuesday night were 2, 5, 26, 58, 60, and MB 6, bringing the number of appearances of the {2-2-1-1} Pattern to 115.
