Mega Millions’ September Heights

September for Mega Millions started with a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak. After appearing five times in a row, it was “dethroned” by another Pattern. Since that night, other Patterns took the reins, none of them able to establish a streak, let alone an encore.

September 28th was no different. Friday night saw yet another unique Pattern and a soaring jackpot, now standing at $367 million.
