The New Streak in Town?

July was the month of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern in Mega Millions. This Pattern reigned supreme, having two instances where it appeared at least four times in a row. To commemorate the end of the month, for Mega Millions at least, one Pattern decided to shake things up Friday night. Instead of serving as a “stop gap” for the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern’s streaks, it may be gearing up to start a streak of its own.

Right off the heels of Tuesday night, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern made another appearance in the July 28, 2017 drawing. With winning numbers 4, 6, 31, 49, 52, and MB 11, this Pattern made its 116th appearance.


This Pattern has played in 29.4% of the 394 Mega Millions drawings.

Making its 41st appearance, the [2-1-2-1] General Order has played in 35.3% of the 116 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 10.4% of all drawings. This General Order was seen alongside the {2-2-1-1} Pattern in this past Tuesday’s drawing.

Now with six appearances, the 2 0 1 2 0 1 Specific Order has played in 14.6% of the 41 drawings where the [2-1-2-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 5.17% of the 116 drawings where the {2-2-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 1.52% of all 394 drawings. Prior to Friday night, this Specific Order was last seen in the January 6, 2017 drawing.

There were also two repeating Three-Number Combinations.

It’s not often that the debut dates for repeating Three-Number Combinations are separated by exactly one week!

Will the {2-2-1-1} Pattern start August with a third consecutive appearance?
