The Rush to a Common Pattern

Whether you’re blessed with summer vacation or must face another work week, one thing everyone (well, most everyone) can agree on is that the weekend goes by too fast. Will we breeze through to Friday, or will the journey there be a slog? Sure, this week is a short one, but inquiring minds want to know! Human minds, anyway.

Mega Millions wasn’t at all concerned about the speed a work week flows. This lottery’s focus was on how to end the month of May. After a wild Friday, there wasn’t enough energy for another go with the {2-2-1-1} Pattern. Mega Millions took a more common approach, Pattern-wise that is, and that was enough to boost the grand prize to $189 million.
