Bouncy, Energetic Mega Millions

The events that took place August 20, 2021 can be described with one word: “whirlwind”. Mega Millions didn’t know what to do with itself. A playback made an appearance, but that wasn’t enough. No, Mega Millions got greedy. It just had to go crazy with the repeating Three-Number Combinations, and would you believe that there was another similar spread? Bouncing and darting through the lottery smorgasbord propelled the jackpot to $270 million.
