Party of One: Mega Millions Edition

After a busy Tuesday, Mega Millions retreated Friday night. No Pattern encores, no crazy plays of any kind to be had. There were a couple of major developments, though. One was a single Three-Number Combination that made its first appearance five years ago. The other was yet another rise in the jackpot; it became worth $113 million.

What with Lotto Texas and Powerball calming down earlier this week and now Mega Millions, perhaps “social distancing” is entering their conscience! Are quiet lotteries going to be the new trend or is this a temporary rest?
