A More “Normal” Approach by the {2-2-1-1} Pattern

Compared to the Pattern streak that happened last month and the playback that happened last time, Tuesday’s drawing was comparatively “normal”. So “normal” in fact that no one got all six numbers in the June 5th drawing. With the jackpot now standing at $125 million, what exactly happened Tuesday night?
