Repeating the Pattern

School has started up once again in our part of Lottery Trend Country. Be it heavy morning traffic or a storm brewing in the Gulf, there isn’t much that can deter Mega Millions. Feeling proud of itself after Friday night’s showing, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern made an encore appearance in the August 22nd drawing. Along for the ride were three repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Tuesday’s winning numbers were 24, 35, 46, 50, 51, and MB 7, bringing the total number of appearances of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern to 66.


This Pattern has now played in 16.5% of the 401 Mega Millions drawings.

Making its 25th appearance, the [1-1-3-1] General Order has played in 37.9% of the 66 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This General Order has also played in 6.23% of all 401 drawings, and was last seen in the August 11th drawing.

Now with eight appearances, the 0 1 1 3 0 1 Specific Order has played in 32% of the 25 drawings where the [1-1-3-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in approximately 12.1% of the 66 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has played, and in roughly 2% of all 401 drawings. The 0 1 1 3 0 1 Specific Order accompanied the [1-1-3-1] General Order in the August 11th drawing.

Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern go for the three-peat, or will it get washed away?
