A “Four”-ceful Start

February: The last (full) month of winter. It being the shortest month of the year is a godsend for everyone waiting for the seasons to change!

Mega Millions sprang into the new month by taking a page from the Lotto Texas playbook. A solid Pattern streak emerged in the February 1st, 2019 drawing. With no grand prize winner, the prize rose once more to $139 million.
