Tuesday Night Repeats: Mega Millions Edition

Ah, August. August, August, August. What can we say about August?

  • It’s the eighth month of the year (almost 2/3 of the way done with 2016).
  • It’s named for Augustus Caesar.
  • Kids and teachers are letting out a collective groan far and wide. Those who start in September get a one-month grace period.

Mega Millions started the month with an encore appearance of a Pattern we saw just last week!

The winning numbers for the Tuesday, August 2nd 2016 Mega Millions drawing were brought to us by 3, 12, 36, 54, 70, and MB 12.

How festive can Mega Millions get this month? Will we see any Patterns play on a continuous streak or other plays of Olympian magnitude?
