Kicking Back with a Playback

After a long slog, it’s finally here. Sure, those long, carefree summer breaks of yore are but a memory, but you’ll take any day that lengthens the weekend. That’s right: Memorial Day is here! Even though it’s a three-day weekend, you’re going to wonder “Where’d the time go?!” just like you do every other weekend. There are ways to ignore that unpleasant feeling of weekends that seem to go by too fast, if only for a little bit. Going to the beach is one and enjoying the creature comforts of air conditioning and streaming is another. Mega Millions can make the dread of another work week go away, but it’ll cost you at least a couple of bucks. The keyword here, of course, is can.

Mega Millions had something to say about that Friday night: “Don’t quit your day jobs, folks!”

After dominating the lottery landscape, the {3-2-1} Pattern was set aside. The idea of a {3-2-1} Pattern three-peat in Mega Millions, of all places, was promptly squashed by something just as effective, if not more: a playback! The result was a jackpot that grew to $170 million.
