Mega Millions’ Streak-less Sendoff

A Pattern streak would’ve been an impactful way to end August. After all, this is the (unofficial) last weekend of summer. What better way to kick off the Labo(u)r Day weekend than a Pattern streak?

Mega Millions had other plans in the August 30th, 2019 drawing. Instead of a Pattern streak, or even an encore, it went with an uncommonly played Pattern. This had the effect of propelling the prize to $137 million.

Autumn is right around the corner. That means pumpkin spice lattes and…Halloween. That Mega Millions prize is a robust size. Will it achieve a beastly size come September’s end or will it be mowed down?
