Mega Millions in “Party Hard, Rest Hard”

Another holiday season has come and gone. A collective groan erupts far and wide as it’s time to get back into the work/school routine. Instead of groaning, Mega Millions yawned.

The Christmas-New Year’s timeframe was a busy one for this lottery. Christmas Eve saw a whopping seven repeating Three-Number Combinations! Nothing like that happened this past Friday. The jackpot rose to $69 million and Mega Millions cocooned itself in a blanket as it took a well-earned rest.
