Mega Millions’ Friday Night Escape

The thermometer readings went down and Mega Millions followed suit with its own cool down. The October 11th, 2019 drawing is the quietest we’ve seen in a while. It during this period of “solitude” that the grand prize shipped from the players’ grasp. Naturally, the jackpot rose to $65 million.

Three-Number Combination(s)

To preserve the theme of cooling off, there were no repeating Three-Number Combinations.

Things may be cooler lottery-wise but that doesn’t mean it’ll stay that way. The {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern did play after all, and that Pattern is known for encores. We’ll have to wait and see if that encore comes through Tuesday night or if Mega Millions has other plans.
