(Order) in the Mega Millions Court

Admittedly cheesy title aside, there was a stirring in Mega Millions this past Tuesday. The jackpot soared once more, resting, for now, at $285 million. Pattern-wise, a {2-1-1-1-1} three-peat wasn’t meant to be. In its place was a different Pattern that was accompanied by a Specific Order debut.

This Combination debuted in the November 30th, 2018 drawing.

What a way to start the month! Hard to believe, but the year (and decade, depending on who you ask) is almost over. Will these last few weeks see a monstrous Mega Millions jackpot take control?
