Mega Millions’ New Trick

In our last Mega Millions post, we covered how four repeating Three-Number Combinations popped up independently of a repeating Four-Number Combination. On April 2, 2021, it happened again! The question is, which made that, and a jackpot shooting up to $184 million, possible?

General Lottery Analysis

A {3-1-1-1} Pattern encore was blocked by the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern. This Pattern’s 288th appearance was made possible with winning numbers 10, 42, 48, 53, 62 and MB 19.

There have now been 659 Mega Millions drawings, and this Pattern has played 43.7% of the time.

The [1-1-2-1-1] General Order, now with 87 appearances, has played in 30.2% of the 288 drawings where {2-1-1-1-1} was the winning Pattern. Once all 659 drawings have been taken into consideration, this General Order has played 13.2% of the time.

Prior to Friday night, we saw both the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern and the [1-1-2-1-1] General Order March 23, 2021.

Now with 22 appearances, the 1 0 1 2 1 1 Specific Order has played in 25.3% of the 87 drawings where the General Order was [1-1-2-1-1]. This Specific Order has also played in 7.64% of the 288 drawings where [1-1-2-1-1] was the winning Pattern and in 3.34% of all 659 drawings. We last saw the 1 0 1 2 1 1 Specific Order March 16, 2021.

Three-Number Combinations

It turned out that Mega Millions outdid itself Friday night. Five repeating Three-Number Combinations took to the field, and not a repeating Four-Number Combination in sight!

Will Mega Millions have more tricks like this in the week ahead, or are we more likely to see a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore?
