Mega Millions and the Trio of (Repeating) Combinations

With the start of the school year comes the start of football season. Be it high school, college, or professional, it may very well be that football may have supplanted baseball as America’s pastime. Mega Millions isn’t a sport, but it has its own grand slams and upsets. With a jackpot now at $134 million, it may be soaring towards the stratosphere soon enough! As far as action was concerned for the August 24th drawing, it was more on the Combination side of things.
