Mellow Mega Millions

July has come and gone. The Rio Olympics are right around the corner and parents all across the U.S. are scrambling for the best Back-to-School deals.

Friday’s Mega Millions drawing was a low-key affair. In our last Mega Millions post, we asked if the {2-2-1-1} would make an encore appearance. The {2-2-1-1} did not make an encore.

The winning numbers for the July 29th, 2016 Mega Millions drawing were 11, 16, 19, 31, 48, and MB 4.
