Mega Millions made history with its $1.6 billion grand prize. In our last Mega Millions post, this beast of a prize was taken down by a lone player from South Carolina. Yet, the ghost still lingered October 26th.

Want to take a guess when this debuted?

Friday night was truly a bizarre end to a bizarre week. Going into “Halloween Eve”, it looks to be much quieter. It will be a while yet before Mega Millions produces another monster that rampages through the countryside and lays waste to cities. Still, one must wonder if a triple encore/playback will show up Tuesday night.
