Tonight’s Episode: “An August Rewind” or “Never Count This Pattern Out”

September 12th was National Chocolate Milkshake Day in Lottery Trend Country. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, frosty chocolate milkshakes scream “Summer”. As summer begins to fade in our part of the world, Mega Millions had a summer throwback. By “throwback”, we mean “Three weeks ago (give or take a couple of days).”

The ever-lovable {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made its 171st appearance Tuesday night. This time around, the winning numbers were 26, 37, 41, 54, 65, and MB 3.

This Pattern has played in 42% of the 407 Mega Millions drawings.

With 49 appearances, the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has played in 28.7% of the 171 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This General Order has also played in approximately 12% of all 407 drawings.

The 0 1 2 1 1 1 Specific Order made its tenth appearance, and has now played in 20.4% of the 49 drawings where the [1-2-1-1-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has played in 5.85% of the 171 drawings where the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 2.46% of all 407 drawings.

All three played together in the August 25th, 2017 drawing!

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

As we continue to ease into autumn, will the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern go for an encore Friday night, or will we see another Pattern? Will that Pattern be accompanied by a General Order and Specific Order that played alongside it once before?
