The Big 400

Summer vacation’s just about over in our part of Lottery Trend Country. What better way to say “Sayonara” to summer than hitting a milestone? The night of August 18th was the 400th Mega Millions drawing. To be more specific, it was the 400th drawing with number balls 1 through 75, and Mega Balls (MBs) 1 through 15. Although we didn’t see a Pattern encore, there was a repeating Three-Number Combination.

Friday’s winning numbers were 1, 31, 34, 40, 75, and MB 6, bringing the number of appearances of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern to 65.


This Pattern has now played in 16.25% of the 400 Mega Millions drawings, and was last seen exactly one week prior in the August 11th drawing.

The [1-3-1-1] General Order made its 19th appearance. As of Friday night, this General Order has played in 29.2% of the 65 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 4.75% of all 400 drawings. This Specific Order previously played in the May 12th, 2017 drawing.

Now with four appearances, the 1 0 3 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 21.1% of the 19 drawings where the [1-3-1-1] General Order has appeared, and in 6.15% of the 65 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern as appeared. This Specific Order has now played in one percent of all 400 drawings. Prior to Friday night, this Specific Order was last seen in the September 9th, 2016 drawing.

The lone repeating Three-Number Combination was 1, 34, and MB 6.
