Where Fearless Lotteries Tread

A wise man once said, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.”

Two times this year, Mega Millions had grand prizes that were at least $500 million dollars. After the December 7th drawing, Mega Millions veered closer into “crazy rich” jackpot territory. With no grand prize winner, the jackpot rose to $245 million.

It’s early yet, but odds of a monstrous jackpot showing up in time for Christmas look favorable! Even if we don’t see another billion-dollar jackpot at the end of the year, the prize is going to be phenomenal. Getting back to present matters, could the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern make an encore in Tuesday’s drawing?

Christmas Pattern Spice

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, the days are getting shorter. If going to work in the dark and/or coming home in the dark isn’t enough, it’s getting colder. Thankfully, the Christmas lights, the hot drinks, and the lottery are just a few things that make us forget about the cold!

With twenty days before Christmas, there were no grand prize winners for either Lotto Texas or Powerball. December 5th saw the jackpots rise to $7.5 million and $217 million, respectively. Even though there were no Pattern encores, the lotteries spiced things up with a couple of uncommonly seen Patterns.

The only thing consistent in December so far is the rising jackpots. Still, one can’t help but wonder if either of these uncommon Patterns will make an encore Saturday night.

Mega Millions and the Christmas Glitz

The Christmas season is the glitziest time of year. Whether it’s the extravagant lights or the decadent desserts, the office Christmas parties or the winter fashion, few can resist. On December 4th, Mega Millions couldn’t resist, either. In fact, it contributed to the glitz.

With no grand prize winner, the jackpot rose to $226 million. Becoming that wealthy (almost) overnight would be the ultimate Christmas gift, or at least hard to top!

Now, this may be jumping the gun, but there was a “crazy-large jackpot” around the time of another holiday earlier this year. Whether it grows to that size, or larger, remains to be seen. For now, we should concern ourselves with Friday night, and whether or not the {3-1-1-1} Pattern will make an encore.

Festive Beginnings

December is a festive month, no doubt about it! What with Christmas and New Year’s Eve, it’s hard not to get sucked up in it somehow. Lotto Texas and Powerball got in the mood December 1st with a stirrup in the jackpots. With no grand prize winners, Powerball rose to $200 million dollars, and Lotto Texas kept it classy with $7.25 million. In fact, it was classy Lotto Texas that saw a three-peat and then some.
