Google is possibly testing the local pack in a five pack form, with five local results. The local results box is known as the three pack because it has shown 3 results since 2015 but we’ve seen Google recently test this five pack, also a two pack and a ten pack – all recently.
Dave DiGregorio spotted the five pack and posted a screenshot of it on Twitter last night, here is that screenshot:
He posted another one as well on Twitter:

Prior to 2015, Google had a seven-pack as the default number of local listings to display before it went to a three-pack.
I cannot replicate this, I just see the three pack…
