Slow and Steady (Pattern) Ends the Month

What a month it was! From holidays to a jackpot that was worth over half a billion dollars, July was festive. What with those Back to School ads and the calendar, July 31st means only a few weeks left of summer. For Mega Millions, it meant another night of recuperation. Even without a big show, $50 million does go a long way.
