Horseshoes and Mega Millions

Close, but no cigar.

Almost doesn’t count, except in horseshoes and hand grenades.

Although nobody won the grand prize in the April 5th Mega Millions drawing, someone in Michigan did win $1 million. Lest the above quotes be a deterrent, $1 million is a hefty hunk of change! There’ll be $120 million up for grabs Tuesday, so keep at it!

The jackpot climbed once again, and it was all thanks to the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern. This Pattern is fond of making encores, so that’s something we’ll need to look out for in Tuesday’s drawing. Pattern encore or no, will the jackpot rise once again, or will it be claimed in full?
