That Good Old Fashioned Pattern Charm

The start of the holiday weekend may have been the start of something else in Mega Millions. It was on July 2nd that the {3-1-1-1} Pattern was invited for drinks and fireworks. The holiday weekend has since ended, but the Pattern decided to stick around for much longer! Long enough, in fact, that a three-peat happened. With the {3-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat came a jackpot boost to $104 million.

Will next week see the {3-1-1-1} Pattern forge a streak?

The Mega Millions After-Holiday Pattern Encore

The Fourth of July may have come and gone, but that didn’t mean there weren’t any leftovers. Unused fireworks, ribs and wieners that weren’t eaten at the barbecue, those sorts of things, true. However, in this case, “leftovers” meant a {3-1-1-1} Pattern encore. With that encore came a jackpot that grew to $94 million.

Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern stick around Friday night, or will another Pattern make an appearance?

Mega Millions’ Completely Not Over-the-Top Celebration

No Independence Day celebration is complete without fireworks! If you’re the type who can’t wait until the holiday to see them, they were more visible in the sky over the neighborhood than in Mega Millions. Given how the Fourth of July holiday is known for its bombastic display of explosions, an opportunity for a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak went unrealized. However, Friday night did not disappoint. A jackpot doesn’t need fanfare to jump to $82 million.  

General Lottery Analysis

The July 2, 2021 Mega Millions drawing saw the 132nd appearance of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, with winning numbers 8, 31, 32, 34, 45 and MB 19.

The jackpot isn’t too far off from being $100 million. Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern return Tuesday night, or will another Pattern help push the jackpot closer?

The Juneteenth Playback Special

June 19th, or Juneteenth, commemorated the end of slavery in Texas. Although the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed in 1863, it wasn’t until June 19, 1865 that Union soldiers sailed into Galveston and read the Emancipation Proclamation that slavery was abolished in Texas.  

Yet, slavery hadn’t been fully abolished in the United States. Kentucky and Delaware, both Union states, continued to practice slavery until the ratification of the 13th Amendment six months later. This is because the Emancipation Proclamation only applied to the Confederacy, of which Texas was a part of.

Today, Juneteenth commemorates the end of slavery in the United States, and as of this past Thursday, a federal holiday. Not only is Juneteenth a day of remembrance for black Americans,  but it’s also a day of celebration.

Lotto Texas and Powerball were linked to this momentous occasion this year. Lotto Texas kept it classy while the jackpot grew to $6 million. Meanwhile, Powerball took a different approach to get its jackpot up to $63 million.

As summer kicks into high gear, are more playbacks on the horizon in the coming week?

The Flaming Hot {3-1-1-1} Pattern Encore

Forget what the calendar says: Summer is here in Lottery Trend country! Soaring temperatures, record-breaking even, are sending droves of people into their air-conditioned fortresses. Those who don’t have the luxury or want to take advantage of the loosening COVID restrictions are heading to movie theatres, malls, swimming pools, and lest we forget, the ever-popular beach.

Hot days don’t necessarily mean cool nights. Thanks to an assist from the {3-1-1-1} Pattern, June 18, 2021 was hot and steamy for Mega Millions! The jackpot climbed to $40 million.

Will the {3-1-1-1} Pattern come back Tuesday night, or will another Pattern be the one to officially welcome summer for Mega Millions?

Mega Millions at the Jackpot Pool

An interesting trait about the Mega Millions jackpot is how it increases in size. The first drawing that takes place after a reset is much like dipping your toe in the pool. The second drawing would be akin to either stepping back (the prize resets to $20 million) or jumping in (the prize sees another increase).

Mega Millions jumped into the pool June 15, 2021 and did so with no hesitation. With none of the players picking all six numbers, the jackpot grew to $30 million.

Drawing/Pattern Dynamics

Hello and greetings, Lotterytrend fans! This is guest blogger Romulun Harris, filling in for Freyja Harris, and giving you the latest updates in Lotto Texas and Powerball.

As we enter yet another Hurricane Season as well, find Lotto Texas and Powerball engaging in their own internal dynamics. Last night on June 12, 2021, the Lottery world experienced hot jackpot temperatures when Texas Lotto increased to $5.5 million and Powerball increased to $40 million. There was also an Australia Play.

LOTTO TEXAS

The 2 2 2 Specific Order coincided with the {2-2-2} Pattern, also in its 258th appearance and sharing the same date. As a reminder, this is called the Australia Play, because just as Australia is a country and continent, in and of itself, the {2-2-2} Pattern is a specific order and a Pattern in and of itself.

Four-Number Combinations

Mega Millions on a Diet

Right after a holiday, it’s not uncommon to feel a little shame after pigging out. You may even find that you can’t fit into your favorite pair of paints or that cute outfit you finally got around to wearing. Sure, you can buy larger sizes, but the remedy is to be more active and go on a diet.

Mega Millions doesn’t need to worry about clothes, true, but it too can overindulge. Perhaps that’s why it scaled back on the repeating Three-Number Combinations Friday night. While the number of repeating Three-Number Combinations shrank, the jackpot grew to $56 million.

General Lottery Analysis

The Mega Millions Springtime Spread

The phrase that best defined the night of April 20, 2021 for Mega Millions was, “Onward and Upward”. This lottery decided not to hang out with either the {2-1-1-1-1} or {3-2-1} Patterns, as it had been of late. As it went looking for another Pattern to pal around with, a similar spread got picked up along the way. That, and the jackpot rose to $277 million.
