Mega Millions Marches Out

March, so they say, comes roaring in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Mega Millions lived up to the saying March 2023! This lottery started the month with its most common Pattern and four repeating Three-Number Combinations. The number of repeating Three-Number Combinations was drastically reduced Friday night, and Mega Millions opted for a less “outgoing” Pattern, but that didn’t hinder jackpot growth. As March made way for April, the jackpot grew to $385 million!
