A Tamer Mega Millions

To say that November 2, 2021 was a quiet night for Mega Millions would be an understatement. This past Friday saw this lottery go wild with repeating Four-Number Combination and its repeating Three-Number Combination spawn (all four of them). Rather than continue with the wildness of repeating Combinations of both the Four and Three-Number kind, Tuesday night was much tamer. In turn, the jackpot quietly increased to $36 million. Considering that November 2nd was All Souls’ Day/Day of the Dead, Mega Millions’ scale-back was fitting.

Will Mega Millions see an avalanche of repeating Three-Number Combinations Friday night, or will other things be in store?
