Mega Millions Gets Sirius

Today’s post is in honor of the dog days of summer. It’s that time from mid-July to mid-(or late) August that comes with heatwaves and record-breaking temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere. In some locations, this year’s summer has been extremely brutal.

Last time, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern made an appearance. One would expect an encore this time, right? Well, no. Mega Millions opted for something else in the July 26, 2019 drawing. By warming up to an uncommonly seen Pattern, the jackpot rose to $45 million.
