Mega Millions’ Friday Night Chill

The Pattern streak is a tried and true method for maintaining momentum across lotteries. Although Mega Millions’ Pattern streak ended earlier this week, other momentous plays include, but or not limited to, playbacks, Australia Plays, and of course, jackpots that extend beyond the stratosphere. Although the February 8, 2019 drawing saw neither of these, the grand prize did rise once more. With the jackpot now $173 million, it may not be much longer before Mega Millions is struck with “crazy-high jackpot fever”!

In the meantime, Mega Millions kept things low-key.

This Combination made its debut November 1, 2016.

Having been “derailed” in this past Tuesday’s drawing, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made a quick comeback. Will it try to reestablish a Pattern streak with an encore in Tuesday’s drawing?
