Halloween Treats

Before we begin tonight’s post, we would like to congratulate the Houston Astros on their first-ever World Series win. Go ‘Stros!

What a night! Whether it was gorging on candy, binge watching horror, or watching the World Series, Halloween had something for everybody. We can’t forget the number lovers, though! Mega Millions had the honor of falling on Halloween this year. Although October 31st was the first day for the new system, the Mega Ball was not one of the new numbers (16-25). Was the old system not quite ready to give up the ghost?
