Encore Evasion

Some Patterns play more than  others. It’s also true that some Patterns are more prone to making consecutive multiple appearances than others. Take the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern. Part of why this Pattern is the most commonly seen in Mega Millions is its willingness to embrace Pattern streaks. Of course, to have a Pattern streak, one must have a Pattern encore first.

Mega Millions had other plans Friday night. Not only did the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern not come back for an encore, the Pattern that did play is common in its own right. No one picked the six winning numbers, and the jackpot climbed to $75 million.
