Mega Millions’ Short Stint

In our last Mega Millions post, we were giving our good friend Mega Millions a pat on the back. After several months of “near playbacks”, a true one finally happened that Friday night. How cool it would’ve been to see another one in the November 26, 2019 drawing! Nothing like making up for missed opportunities, right?

Well, it just so happened that Mega Millions fell back into old habits. Another “near playback” greeted the players and with that, the jackpot ballooned to $243 million.

Black Friday will soon be upon us. Will Mega Millions greet the Christmas season with a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore? Will someone win an early Christmas gift?
