Mega Millions’ Trio of Encores

Friday nights are usually about one of the following: (1) Chilling at home and (2) Going out. Although Mega Millions didn’t go out with anyone November 19, 2021, it did go all out. Friday night saw this lottery go to town with not only its Pattern, but the General and Specific Orders as well. By “go to town”, we mean encores, and this playback encore was responsible for sending the jackpot to $83 million.
