Mega Millions’ Completely Not Over-the-Top Celebration

No Independence Day celebration is complete without fireworks! If you’re the type who can’t wait until the holiday to see them, they were more visible in the sky over the neighborhood than in Mega Millions. Given how the Fourth of July holiday is known for its bombastic display of explosions, an opportunity for a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak went unrealized. However, Friday night did not disappoint. A jackpot doesn’t need fanfare to jump to $82 million.
