The Ol’ {2-2-1-1} Pattern Back n’ Forth

It’s the very nature of lotteries to have their Patterns take turns with one another. Otherwise, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak would never end! What happens when a Pattern plays, then disappears for a drawing, then shows up again? Other than missed opportunity for a Pattern three-peat, of course.

Mega Millions answered that question this past Friday night with its {2-2-1-1} Pattern. In addition to this Pattern’s back and forth action, there were no grand prize winners. As a result, the jackpot rose to $164 million.
