Playback Says “What?”

So far this month, Mega Millions has been the quiet lottery. Meanwhile, Lotto Texas and Powerball have had their fill with Pattern streaks and repeating Combinations of the Three and Four-Number kind. November 16th continued the trend, but this past Friday wasn’t too serene. Not only did the grand prize climb to $139 million, it got a boost from a little phenomenon called the playback!

When was that special day that the Pattern, General Order, and Specific Order were last seen together?

Three Number Combination(s)

There were no repeating Three-Number Combinations this time.

Mega Millions will probably keep to the Thanksgiving spirit and be as quiet as it has been throughout the month. Still, this lottery is known to throw in a surprise or two whenever a holiday is right around the corner. Could the {3-2-1} Pattern pull a zinger and go for an encore Tuesday night?
