Mega Millions’ April Send-Off (Making Way for May)

It’s hard to believe, but we’re already a third of the way through 2019! That’s just eight months away from not only another year, but another decade.

But let’s focus on the here and now, shall we? April 30th marked the end of the month, naturally, and Mega Millions was there for the send-off. Nothing too grand or flashy for this lottery.

Well, there is a $252 million grand prize to keep an eye on…

The only thing certain is that Mega Millions will be starting May with a jackpot just above a quarter of a billion dollars. May is also the unofficial start of summer, if the theme park commercials aren’t a sign. Will the blockbuster jackpot grow after Friday’s drawing, or will the prize be claimed?
