Mid-Month Malaise?

After the appearance of a repeating Four-Number (yes, Four-Number!) Combination this past Friday night, Mega Millions had two choices April 16th:

  1. Try to outdo the insanity
  2. Slip into a more “normal” routine

Mega Millions decided to grab a little from Column A and a little from Column B. Mild spoiler: There wasn’t another repeating Four-Number Combination. Compared to what we’ve seen in Mega Millions so far this month, Tuesday night was “ho-hum”. And yet, the aftermath of said ho-hum night is why $175 million is up for grabs this Friday. A Good Friday indeed!

The [1-2-2-1] General Order, now with 43 appearances, has played in 33.6% of the 128 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 454 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 9.47% of the time. We last saw the [1-2-2-1] General Order February 5th, 2019.

Now with five appearances, the 1 0 2 2 0 1 Specific Order has played in 11.6% of the 43 drawings where the General Order was [1-2-2-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 3.91% of the 128 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 1.10% of all 454 drawings. Prior to Tuesday night, the 1 0 2 2 0 1 Specific Order played August 17th, 2018.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Not only was there no repeating Four-Number Combinations, Three-Number Combinations were nowhere to be found.

What’s certain as we head into Easter weekend is that a large jackpot is up for grabs. As to whether the {2-2-1-1} Pattern makes an encore will remain to be seen. Question is, will the prize be snagged or will it hop away?
