Flirting with Millions on the Way Down

Time flies, doesn’t it? Why, it seemed like yesterday we were greeting 2022 with welcome arms, hopeful that it would be better than the two preceding years. Now, some 360-odd days later, we’re happy to be rid of it. As people prepared to celebrate Friday night, Mega Millions saw a major winding down.

First, Mega Millions broke it off with the {2-2-1-1} Pattern. Second, no one was able to bring the jackpot down to size. This lottery ended its 2022 stint with a prize that easily towered above the others, a prize worth $785 million!
