Show Me the $50 Million

Well, this was unexpected!

For the past few months, Mega Millions has been following this routine:

  1. Reach crazy-large jackpot.
  2. Someone wins crazy-large jackpot and prize gets knocked down to $40 million.
  3. Repeat step 1.

Would you believe that the prize got knocked back down to $40 million already?

“Show me!” you say?

Well sir (or ma’am), it turns out that the sole winner of the March 12th, 2019 Mega Millions jackpot hailed from Missouri! And, to satisfy those from the Show Me State, both figuratively and literally, here’s the rundown.
