May Day! May Day!

This title was brought to you by the month of May. Yes, May. A month for honoring spring, workers, children (Japan), mothers (US, Canada, Australia), and for the kids, the last month of school. At least here in Houston.

For Lottery Binge, May 1st meant Mega Millions. It had the honor of kicking off lottery analysis coverage for this month. Where we last left off, we wanted to know if the {2-2-1-1} Pattern would start the month with an encore. An encore wasn’t meant to be, but we did see a very special Pattern. So special that it’s known for its summer Pattern streaks.
