Mega Millions’ Weekend Opening Ceremony

After having been delayed for a year, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics kicked off July 23, 2021. Even without a massive gathering of spectators, the opening ceremony was still a sight to behold. The event appeared low-key on the surface, but under the surface was energy and quirkiness.

Mega Millions took a similar approach Friday night. Although the drawing didn’t come with an Australia Play encore, the jackpot rose all the same! More specifically, it rose to $153 million.

Meditating Mega Millions

With all the chaos and confusion that has gripped the world, especially for the past year-and-a-half, one thing still manages to hold strong. The Tokyo Olympics will officially start Friday, even with thousands (more like millions) calling for the ordeal to be cancelled altogether. That Virus is still raging, and with the absence of massive crowds of spectators, not to mentions athletes falling ill, this grand sporting event just won’t be the same this year.

Mega Millions had a knack for reading the room Tuesday night. A {2-2-1-1} Pattern three-peat wasn’t featured. Instead, Mega Millions took the time to reflect on a different Pattern. This lottery not only boosted its inner well-being, but its jackpot. The prize grew to $138 million.

Will we see this quieter Mega Millions again Friday night, or will it embrace a more extroverted approach?

Mega Millions’ Matter of Repetition

Some things bear repeating. It’s how we as humans tend to remember everything from our times tables to annoying advertisements.

Repetition in the lottery world, in its most basic form, is a Pattern encore. Sometimes that’s as far as it goes, but the potential for a Pattern streak is always there. Now, it’s premature to say that the {2-2-1-1} Pattern encore of July 16, 2021 will lead up to a Pattern streak, but it did help propel the Mega Millions jackpot to $128 million.

General Lottery Analysis

With winning numbers 24, 25, 47, 52, 57 and MB 24, the {2-2-1-1} Pattern made its 188th appearance.

Will the {2-2-1-1} Pattern and/or the [2-2-1-1] General Order come back for a three-peat Tuesday night?

Mega Millions’ Sense and Civility

Last time in Mega Millions, the {3-1-1-1} Pattern was on the verge of a Pattern streak. The momentum of the Fourth of July holiday certainly helped! To put it another way, once the holiday (week) ended, Mega Millions threw out the cans and dressed properly. Most everyone has gone back to work, and “Back to School!” sales started to rear their heads.

If anything carried over from the previous week, it was the rising jackpot. With no one selecting the six winning numbers, the prize jumped to $117 million.

With the {3-1-1-1} Pattern three-peat came a jackpot boost to $104 million.

The Mega Millions After-Holiday Pattern Encore

The Fourth of July may have come and gone, but that didn’t mean there weren’t any leftovers. Unused fireworks, ribs and wieners that weren’t eaten at the barbecue, those sorts of things, true.

Mega Millions’ Completely Not Over-the-Top Celebration

No Independence Day celebration is complete without fireworks! If you’re the type who can’t wait until the holiday to see them, they were more visible in the sky over the neighborhood than in Mega Millions. Given how the Fourth of July holiday is known for its bombastic display of explosions, an opportunity for a {2-1-1-1-1} Pattern streak went unrealized. However, Friday night did not disappoint. A jackpot doesn’t need fanfare to jump to $82 million.
