Encores in Unexpected Places

Lotteries have an unusual way of gifting people. Some, like Mega Millions, offer the opportunity to win millions of dollars. Sure, it stings when you don’t win, but it hurts a little less when no one else can claim the prize (admit it) and even more is up for grabs!

On December 10, 2019, Mega Millions employed the power of a Pattern encore. But that wasn’t the only encore. You’ll have to keep reading to find out where the other encore was. Also, with two weeks before Christmas, the jackpot grew to $340 million.
