Gettin’ Those Combo Fixins

Humans, like all animals, need to eat. Many of us strive to eat a more well-balanced diet, but everyone has that one meal that makes us feel warm and fuzzy inside. Comfort food, or “good fixin’s” if you will. For some, it’s tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. For others, it’s fried fish and chips (French fries for us Yanks). As for lotteries, their “good fixin’s” are common Patterns with an extra kick.

Even though Mega Millions hosted its most common Pattern Tuesday night, the results were anything but! There was an abundance of repeating Three-Number Combinations, and the jackpot reinforced its beastly status. More specifically, the jackpot rose to $301 million.
