A Mega Millions’ Jackpot’s Guide to Surviving January

Mega Millions finished 2021 strong and showed no signs of weakening Tuesday night. With Powerball having been knocked off its feet earlier this month and Lotto Texas being its ever-reserved self, the Mega Millions jackpot reigned supreme! Thanks to an assist from a very common Pattern, the jackpot rose to an astonishing $376 million.

Going into Friday night, a beast of a jackpot got a boost from the most seen Pattern in Mega Millions. That Pattern has a way of going beyond just making an encore appearance and has assisted jackpots in their quest for growth. Will the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern assist the jackpot once again Friday night, or will it be the reset button?

The Hidden Strength of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern

“Never judge a book by its cover.”

“Big things come in small packages.”

We’ve all heard something like the above phrases at one time or another. The gist is to never assume, and that goes double for lottery patterns. Take the {3-1-1-1} Pattern in Mega Millions. Compared to the likes of, oh, the {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern, it doesn’t get a lot of play. Given that, one would think this {3-1-1-1} Pattern is a “small” player, no big deal.

You should know by now, or will know, that there are no small players in lottery!

Friday night’s showing of the {3-1-1-1} Pattern had the power to enrich or tease. This Pattern opted for the latter approach. As frustrating as it was for so many, the jackpot boost to $347 million was a silver lining.
