Mega Millions’ Memoria Day (Weekend) Combination Special

Memorial Day is the traditional start of summer, even if the schools haven’t closed just yet*. For us at Lottery Trend headquarters, this holiday weekend marks a milestone. It was five years ago that Lottery Binge went online. Five years of providing the latest lottery analysis for Lotto Texas, Powerball, and Mega Millions, and no intention of slowing down!

*For readers not familiar with the U.S. school system, the country doesn’t have a national curriculum. The states determine the start and end dates of the school year, as well as what gets taught. Some schools close at the beginning of May (and the kids go back in late July/early August) while others let out at the end of June (and start after Labor Day). In our neck of the woods, the schools let out right before Memorial Day.

How fitting that Mega Millions kicked off Memorial Day weekend! The May 28, 2021 drawing saw a bombardment of repeating Three-Number Combinations. This pushed the jackpot upward to $34 million. Both of these were made possible by the return of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern.
