Mega Millions and the Trusty Encore

For those of you out there clamoring to see a playback in Mega Millions, this past Friday didn’t deliver. Rather than focus on the negatives, we’re going to focus on the positives. It’s the weekend after all, and Mega Millions didn’t skimp out on other goodies! This lottery saw an encore not just with the Pattern, but the General Order as well. Throw in a repeating Three-Number Combination and this proved enough madness to send the jackpot to $192 million.

A playback may not be in Mega Millions’ future anytime soon, but a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat might be! This Pattern is the most commonly seen in Mega Millions and it’s fond of trying to get Pattern streaks going.
