Mega Millions’ Smashing September Start

Even though September 21st is the official last day of summer, Labor Day is considered the traditional end of the season. Although many schools and colleges have been in session for several weeks, the day after Labor Day, later even, is when the school year traditionally started in the United States. Whether you and/or your kids have been in class for several weeks or have yet to start, a three-day weekend is always welcome.

Fireworks aren’t often associated with Labor Day celebrations, but Mega Millions put on a show! This lottery got things rolling with an uncommonly seen Pattern. That came with an abundance of repeating Three-Number Combinations and a Specific Order making its debut! To top it all off, the already enormous jackpot grew even more to $345 million.
