The Month of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern

The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern is one that does not step aside easily! May isn’t over, and summer hasn’t officially started yet, but that didn’t stop the Pattern from achieving blockbuster returns, even if there was no winner (jackpot now at $60 million). With the May 18, 2018 drawing, it has now played four times in a row. Looking back on the month so far, there has been only one drawing where this Pattern didn’t appear.
