Mega Millions’ Reduction Plan

The past few Mega Millions drawings saw a budding relationship with repeating Three-Number Combinations. At least three such Combinations would appear. As it is in life, so it is in the lottery world: Nothing lasts forever.

The April 6, 2021 Mega Millions drawing saw a massive reduction in repeating Three-Number Combinations. As that was going on, the jackpot crossed the $200 million threshold. More specifically, the prize had increased to $201 million.
