Mega Millions’ Matter of Repetition

Some things bear repeating. It’s how we as humans tend to remember everything from our times tables to annoying advertisements.

Repetition in the lottery world, in its most basic form, is a Pattern encore. Sometimes that’s as far as it goes, but the potential for a Pattern streak is always there. Now, it’s premature to say that the {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore of July 16, 2021 will lead up to a Pattern streak, but it did help propel the Mega Millions jackpot to $128 million.
