{3-1-1-1} Pattern + (Repeating) Combinations = A Decent Finish

Last month, Mega Millions ended the way it started. That is, the Pattern that kicked off December was also the last Pattern. This was appropriate, seeing as the year was ending. Nothing better than sending the year off with a bang, right? That sort of thing should carry on right into the new year, yeah?

To fit the “drab” mood oft associated with January after New Year’s in our part of the world, Mega Millions didn’t end the month with the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, which played January 2nd. That would’ve been something: A Pattern encore and ending January the way it started! Instead, the January 30, 2018 drawing provided something a bit more “Combination-y”.
