Mega Millions and the Second Summer

In the spirit of early-October warmth and humidity, Mega Millions had a hot and sticky October 5th. Once again, the jackpot rose, and just like this past summer, it entered “stupid rich” territory. The grand prize rose to an astounding $470 million! To liven up the night even more, Mega Millions showed that it had an offbeat sense of humor.

Mega Millions decided to have a little fun and threw out this lone repeating Three-Number Combination:

Here’s the fun part. This Combination made its debut on April 1, 2016. Want to know what’s even nuttier? The Specific Order from that night was exactly like the Specific Order seen this past Friday! The winning numbers were 25, 28, 33, 41, 69, and MB 6 that night. No foolin’!

P.S: Look at how close the numbers that played Friday night are to the ones that played April Fools’ Day! That’s what Lottery Binge is for. The Lottery Trend analysis gurus peek under the hood, do their analysis, and I report it.

We’re going into the 400th Mega Millions drawing with a crazy-large jackpot. There’s a pretty good chance that the grand prize may rise even more before numbers are drawn on Tuesday. Will someone walk away half a billion dollars richer?
