Back in the Playback Club

It finally happened.

After several drawings of close calls and other lotteries seeing them, Mega Millions saw a playback! We’re not sure what got Mega Millions in the playback spirit. Maybe it wanted to kick off the Thanksgiving part of HallowThankmas with a big play. Maybe it too missed being in the good graces of a playback. Whatever the reason, the jackpot rose to $226 million.
