The Spreading Pattern Streak Blocker

Variety is the spice of life, as they say, and there are a variety of spreads. Some enhance the taste of sandwiches, and others make beds look nice. There are others still, but today, we shall look at one that thrives in the lottery world. Now, it doesn’t show up often, but when it does, it makes a big impact!

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the similar spread, and Mega Millions encountered one in Friday night’s drawing. That and a bombardment of repeating Three-Number Combinations pushed the jackpot past $100 million: $102 million to be precise.
