A Page Out of the Lotto Texas Playbook

Yes, it’s Wednesday and yes, this post is about Mega Millions. After watching Powerball get taken down before it could get back up, it was time for a different approach. The June 16, 2020 Mega Millions drawing featured encores for both the {3-2-1} Pattern and the [2-3-1] General Order! What with imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, Mega Millions took a page from the Lotto Texas playbook. This boosted the jackpot to $26 million.
