Variety is the Spice of Mega Millions

Variety, regardless of how we feel about it, makes life more interesting. For better or worse, we humans don’t mind the occasional shake-up to our routines. It just so happened that Mega Millions is also one that enjoys partaking in variety as well! Instead of a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat, another approach was taken to raise the jackpot. With no one picking the six winning numbers, it climbed to $24 million.
