Mega Millions: Springing into an Encore

Spring may be right around the corner, but it doesn’t quite feel like it. Just when you think you can put away the winter coat, you end up needing it again! This exercise of “Coat or no coat?” may continue for a few more days, or even a few more weeks. Lotteries generally don’t think about which Patterns they play. They stick with a Pattern and run with it, come what may.

Take Mega Millions, for instance. There were no internal conflicts regarding whether it should stick with the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern or cast it aside for another. Mega Millions swiftly made the decision to kick off the weekend with a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern encore. That helped push the jackpot gently upward to $22 million.
