Mega Millions in “Stand by Your Pattern”

“March comes roaring in like a lion and out like a lamb,” or so the saying goes. If the weather at the beginning of the month is rough, then the weather at the end of the month should be calmer. Of course, you most likely remember at least one occasion when that wasn’t true! Lotteries, like Mother Nature, pay such sayings no mind.

For Mega Millions, Tuesday night meant the return of the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, though it wasn’t exactly like last time. There wasn’t a playback, but this lottery stirred the pot a different way. This pot-stirring helped push the jackpot to $70 million.
