Another Crazy-High Mega Millions Jackpot? You Bet it Is!

Mega Millions is at it again with what may be another holiday-themed jackpot surge! For anyone who doesn’t remember, it was Halloween 2018 (or thereabouts) when this lottery’s jackpot surged to $1.6 billion, the highest prize yet. With no one able to match all six numbers this past Friday, the jackpot climbed to $314 million. Although nowhere near the record, it got closer.
