Twos made an appearance in Twosday’s drawing

The most recent drawing took place on “Twosday”, so called because of the unique date full of twos: 2/22/22. While no one hit the Top Prize or even a $1 million prize in that drawing, the number 22 was drawn as one of the first five white balls.

Since the beginning of Mega Millions, 22 has made an appearance in the first five balls 98 times. That’s 1.43% of the time, which is fairly often considering there are 70 possible numbers.
