Mega Millions Laboring in Holiday Mode

So, it has come at last. With the arrival of Labor Day weekend, summer is (un)officially over. No need to belabor the situation. Get in that visit to the beach or dip in the pool before it gets too cold to do so. If neither the beach nor the pool are your thing, try taking a shot at Mega Millions! Be warned, though, that lotteries are also prone to relaxing in their own way.

Mega Millions kicked off the Labor Day weekend by avoiding a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat. There wasn’t a whiff of a playback, either. Still, there was enough to push the jackpot to $191 million.

Is a {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore in store for Tuesday night, or will Mega Millions feature another Pattern?
