A Good Night for an Encore

April 19, 2019 marked two important holidays: Good Friday and the beginning of Passover. Given the magnitude of both these holidays and the magnitude of what happened earlier this week, it’s fitting that Mega Millions continued the trend established this past Tuesday. For starters, the grand prize rose once more and now stands at $192 million.

There was also a Pattern encore.

General Lottery Analysis

The {2-2-1-1} Pattern was liked so much that it came back for another appearance! With winning numbers 18, 25, 43, 44, 57, and MB 25, this Pattern played for the 129th time.

Once all 455 drawings are taken into consideration, this General Order has played 9.23% of the time. Prior to Friday night, the [2-2-1-1] General Order played March 5, 2019.

This Specific Order has also played in 1.55% of the 129 drawings where {2-2-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.43% of all 455 drawings. The 0 2 0 2 1 1 Specific Order made its first appearance December 15, 2015.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Another trait from Tuesday night was the lack of repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Two things to look out for next week will be the jackpot and the {2-2-1-1} Pattern. This Pattern has been known to make three-peats and Mega Millions gets the itch for crazy-large jackpots from time to time. Will the three-peat happen, and will the jackpot continue to rise?
