Another Helping of {3-1-1-1}

Right off the heels of Friday night’s drawing, Mega Millions started October with a {3-1-1-1} encore. The October 3, 2017 drawing also featured a Specific Order that hadn’t been seen in almost two years. Although we didn’t have a repeating Combination bonanza, there was a repeating Three-Number Combination or two.

With winning numbers 12, 18, 19, 25, 67, and MB 7, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 69th appearance.

Given that there have now been 413 drawings, this Pattern has now played in 16.7% of the 413 Mega Millions drawings.

The [1-3-1-1] General Order made its 20th appearance, and has now played in roughly 29% of the 69 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared. This General Order has also played in 4.84% of all 413 drawings. We last saw the [1-3-1-1] General Order in the August 18, 2017 drawing.

Now with three appearances, the 1 3 0 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 15% of the 20 drawings where the [1-3-1-1] General Order has appeared. This Specific Order has also played in 4.35% of the 69 drawings where the {3-1-1-1} Pattern has appeared, and in 0.73% of all 413 drawings. Now, the 1 3 0 0 1 1 Specific Order is a special one indeed. It previously played in the December 18, 2015 drawing. Talk about an early Christmas gift!
