Mega Millions’ Silent-ish Night

Another period of rising jackpots has come to an end in Mega Millions. The Ultimate Christmas Present was won in Ohio. Even though only one could claim the coveted $372 million, Mega Millions stayed true to the Christmas spirit, gifting players in other states with at least $1 million. Naturally, the jackpot reset itself to $40 million.

Would you believe that Mega Millions did not employ a {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore or some other wild play?
