Mega Millions in “Beastly Beginnings”

Happy New Year, everyone! Last year was a year like no other, and it’d be hard to find anyone who misses 2020. May 2021 be a year that’s kinder to us all.

Whether we wanted to or not, many of us rang in 2021 at home. Even without the gigantic parties, firework shows, whether on the block or on TV, more than made up for that (and they were free!). Speaking of fireworks, Mega Millions had a big display of its own. Since September, the jackpot has managed to escape the grasp of the players and on New Year’s Day 2021, the beastly jackpot became even beastlier.

As fate would have it, all the players came up short when it came to picking the six winning numbers. Thus, the beast grew once again, reaching $432 million.

Part of that beastliness was fueled by a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore. With winning numbers 8, 24, 53, 68, 69 and MB 7, this Pattern made its 280th appearance.
