The Mega Millions Springtime Spread

The phrase that best defined the night of April 20, 2021 for Mega Millions was, “Onward and Upward”. This lottery decided not to hang out with either the {2-1-1-1-1} or {3-2-1} Patterns, as it had been of late. As it went looking for another Pattern to pal around with, a similar spread got picked up along the way. That, and the jackpot rose to $277 million.
