The Great Combination Gathering

Add “social distancing” to the ever-growing list of concepts that mean nothing to lotteries.

Mega Millions ditched the {3-2-1} Pattern this past Tuesday night. A three-peat for such a Pattern would be more suited to Lotto Texas, anyway. While Mega Millions went to pick up another Pattern, a bevy of repeating Three-Number Combinations came along for the ride. The grand prize went unclaimed once again, rising to $107 million.
