Mega Millions and the Pattern Reprisal

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, no Independence Day celebration is complete without fireworks! Even the stodgiest person can be mesmerized by whizzes, whirls, and colorful explosions, be it from the fireworks show hosted by the city proper, or the impromptu one hosted on the neighborhood block. Those who “host” the fireworks show on the block probably had a few holidays where not all the fireworks get used. Sure, they can be saved for the next Fourth of July, or even New Year’s, but why wait? Mega Millions didn’t.

For one, Mega Millions was firing off fireworks as early as July 1st. That festive mood carried over into Tuesday night and pairing that with some leftover fireworks meant another show! The jackpot soared overhead and reached a height of $400 million.
