There’s Something Familiar About That Mega Millions

In the shadow of Powerball’s massive jackpot stands Mega Millions. It wasn’t too long ago that Mega Millions had the prize everyone was clamoring for. Now, the beleaguered lottery hasn’t been able to break free from the reset cycle. Lately, the jackpot has only been able to rise to $31 million or so just before being forced to reset. A similar story was told Friday night.

Last Friday, the Mega Millions jackpot rose to $31 million, only to reset earlier this week. February 3, 2023 was familiar in more ways than one. The jackpot rose to $31 million, and it was thanks to the very Pattern that triggered Tuesday night’s reset in the first place!
