Mega Millions’ Not-so-Foreboding Pattern

“Beware the Ides of March.”

If you grew up in an English-speaking country, chances are you studied the works of William Shakespeare in high school or college (probably both). One work you probably studied was The Tragedy of Julius Caesar (often shortened to Julius Caesar), a historical play. The line that begins today’s blog post was said by a soothsayer to Caesar himself in Act 1, Scene 2. The “ides” refers to March 15th, and it was on that day in 44 BCE that the Roman emperor was assassinated.

Mega Millions fell upon March 15th this year, but there was no tragedy for this lottery. After being forced to reset earlier this month, the jackpot continued its steady climb upward Tuesday night. In the end, the jackpot settled at $29 million.
