Mega Millions Slightly Stirring

After Mega Millions used Tuesday night to reflect and take a breather, Friday night wasn’t quite the same. November 4, 2022 was far from a number frenzy, but the night saw more activity. An appearance by this lottery’s most common Pattern, along with a little something extra, pushed the jackpot to $154 million.
