Mega Millions Takes a Holiday

A front has blown through Houston, and for those who like cold weather (not colds!) at Christmas time, it feels a bit more like Christmas is “supposed” to feel. Not cold enough to snow, but certainly sweater weather. Mega Millions took a cue from Mother Nature and cooled down, too. Just like last year. But, unlike what we saw the week before Christmas 2016, there was a Pattern encore in the December 22nd drawing.

Three Number Combination(s)

As is the nature of a cooldown, there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Hard to believe, but next week will be the last full week of 2017. Will Mega Millions end the year with a bang?
