Mega Millions and a “Routine” Pattern

After the huge jackpot and the rarely-seen Australia Play, Mega Millions has had one wild summer. The season itself may have about six weeks left, but the school boards say otherwise. As summer vacation starts to wind down, Mega Millions went for something more routine in the August 7th drawing. The aftermath, if it can be called that, was a rising jackpot. As of this writing, the grand prize is now a cool $63 million.
