Mega Millions and Chill

Friday night has come at last! The job is a distant memory, until Sunday night anyway, and it’s time to get the weekend started. Something’s playing at the movie theatre, right? What about the restaurant that opened a few months ago? Nothing kicks the weekend off like a good meal.

Well, there is one thing that might rival those. Friday nights are Mega Millions nights, you know. Wouldn’t it be something to play and walk away a multimillionaire? Play your cards right (see what we did there?) and you won’t have to ever count down to the weekend again!

Unfortunately, the dream of becoming a “Friday night multimillionaire” was deferred for many. Mega Millions managed to thwart the players Friday night with little effort. Simply through the power of chilling out, the jackpot received a boost, resting at $432 million.

General Lottery Analysis

Even though Mega Millions decided to chill, September 17, 2021 was when the {2-2-1-1} Pattern came back for an encore! With winning numbers 17, 32, 40, 59, 61 and MB 18, this Pattern has now played 195 times.

Three-Number Combinations

Part of chilling on a Friday night is the lack of repeating Three-Number Combinations.

The last (true) day of summer is on September 21st, and Mega Millions has the honor of having a drawing. Will this coming Tuesday spell the end of the jackpot run?
