It’s *Just* the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, Right?

June 1st has come and gone, and Mega Millions had the “honor” of starting the month. With the jackpot now standing at $110 million, could this be a buildup to an insanely large one later this summer? Time will tell.

Now, the title of today’s post has a mild spoiler. Yes, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern played, but “So what?” you wonder. Well, it is the most commonly seen Mega Millions Pattern by a good margin. That, and when this Pattern plays, there’s usually something more behind it.

Summer is a time of blockbusters, competition shows, and whatnot, but there’s another thing that it’s famous for, or was. For all you older readers out there, remember when all the TV shows had aired their last episodes of the season (or ever), and there was nothing but repeats? Some things repeat, or at least rhyme. Earlier in the week, Mega Millions had a playback with a different Pattern-General Order-Specific Order group. There was another, this time with the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, the [1-1-1-2-1] General Order, and the 1 1 0 1 2 1 Specific Order. These three were last seen a couple of weeks ago in the May 18, 2018 drawing.

Three Number Combination(s)

Amidst all the excitement of yet another playback, there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Will the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore, or better yet, will a playback occur in Tuesday’s drawing?
