Attention-Seeking Mega Millions

It wasn’t that long ago that a monster-sized jackpot was won in Mega Millions. Sometime between then and the June 12, 2020 drawing, Lotto Texas had a brief moment where it had the largest jackpot. The keyword here is “had”. What about Powerball, you ask? It too was recently cut down to size and was on the way to building its jackpot back up, only to be claimed swiftly. With no one able to pick all six numbers, and with a little help from an uncommonly seen Pattern (and the accompanying madness), Mega Millions reigned supreme with a jackpot that climbed to $22 million.

Three-Number Combination(s)

And now, the madness of the {3-2-1} Pattern. It couldn’t act alone, so it recruited five repeating Three-Number Combinations to act as its groupies:

Will the Mega Millions jackpot rise again Tuesday night, or will it too hit the reset button?
