Mega Millions: In Like a February

March is here, which means more sunlight and warmer temperatures*! But as we get ready to see winter in our rear-view mirror (at least until December), it’ll throw in occasional reminders that it isn’t spring just yet. Whereas March can come bundled with surprise frosts and snowstorm, lotteries make callbacks to winters past. Or even just the past week.

*In the Southern Hemisphere, it’s the opposite.

For Mega Millions, the March 2, 2021 drawing meant getting reacquainted with February. This led to a jackpot now worth $55 million.

Will a {3-1-1-1} Pattern encore, or perhaps even a playback, be the flavor of Friday night?
