At-“ten”-ding to Mega Millions

After appearing five times in a row, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern was absent December 4, 2020. A couple of notable things happened on the way to derailing the Pattern streak:

  • The jackpot rose to $264 million
  • The dates. A playback didn’t happen (though it was close), but there was a similarity between them
