Mega Millions and the Combination Octet

It was just one week ago that someone won the billion-dollar jackpot. In the week since then, Mega Millions was resting. The jackpot continued to rise but without many appearances of repeating Three or even Four-Number Combinations. That changed January 29, 2021. Not only did such Combinations come about, but the jackpot also rose to $42 million.
