Ce N’est Pas Une Playback (This is Not a Playback)

Friday nights were meant for football.  They were also meant for parties, relaxing with a good drink, and big plays for Mega Millions. Except, there weren’t any big plays November 8, 2019. By that, we mean no Pattern encore, no Australia Play, not even a playback. Sure, Mega Millions came close, but a playback wasn’t mean to be. If by “major play”, you thought we meant, “No one won and the prize got larger”, then you were right on the money (no pun intended)! The jackpot increased to $163 million.

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 3, 4, 10, 39, 58, and MB 14, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern made its 95th appearance.

This Pattern has now played in 18.5% of the 513 Mega Millions drawings.

The [3-1-1-1] General Order, now with 37 appearances, has played in 38.9% of the 95 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 513 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 7.21% of the time.

Both the {3-1-1-1} Pattern and the [3-1-1-1] General Order were last seen October 25, 2019.

Now with two appearances, the 3 0 1 0 1 1 Specific Order has played in 5.41% of the 37 drawings where the General Order was [3-1-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 2.11% of the 95 drawings where {3-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern and in 0.39% of all 513 drawings. The 3 0 1 0 1 1 Specific Order made its first appearance in the October 15, 2019 drawing.

Three-Number Combination(s)

Another big development was the repeat appearances of two Three-Number Combinations:

  • 4, 39, MB 14 (Debuted April 3, 2018)
  • 10, 39, MB 14 (Debuted May 9, 2014)
But repeating Three-Number Combinations gel! Source: lotterytrend-megamillions.com.

Whether a playback is in Mega Millions’ immediate future is something that can’t be foretold. What we should direct our attention to is the jackpot. It’s not far from crazy-large territory. We’ll have to see if it crosses that $200 million threshold, and if it does, how much farther it will go…
