Mega Millions’ Friday Night Routine

Routines are an inescapable part of life. From getting ready for work or school to even just sleeping in on weekends, routines are what give our lives some semblance of order. Thing is, sticking to the same routine can get boring; it’s good to shake it up now and again. Lotteries are good at that!

Take Mega Millions. Earlier this week, it got a visit from the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern. Now, there could have been a Pattern encore this past Friday night. After all, this Pattern is notorious for such. Instead, Mega Millions took a different approach. Sure, there was wailing and gnashing of teeth from those who partook in the Friday night routine (or just wanted to shake it up a bit), but if there’s one saving grace, the jackpot ballooned to $396 million.
