Mega Millions and the 1000th Lottery Binge

Lottery Binge has hit a milestone: Our 1000th post!

This blog got its start in May 2016. For nearly five years, we’ve brought you insight and analysis for Powerball, Mega Millions, and Lotto Texas. Thank you to everyone who has stuck around and for our new readers, welcome aboard. Here’s to another 1000 posts!

Mega Millions had the honor of being the subject of this milestone. The March 5, 2021 drawings meant no {3-1-1-1} Pattern encore and no grand prize winners. However, there was a silver lining; the jackpot rose to a hearty $68 million.
