Doing it the (Pattern) Encore Way

Pattern encores lead players down a forked path.  Encores can either help a player, or players, win the grand prize, or send them down the path of trying again. Friday night meant the latter for all who played Mega Millions. To think that a lottery that struggled earlier this year after being dealt a powerful reset managed to rebound and then some! With an assist from a Pattern encore, Mega Millions’ $441 million remained the largest jackpot of the three.
