Flirting with Playbacks

February is right around the corner and with it comes Valentine’s Day. Regardless of your feelings towards the holiday, it’s a time when lovers and friends send cards and candy. Others try to get their flirt on.

Speaking of flirting, Mega Millions teased the idea of a playback. It was close, but a playback wasn’t meant to be this past Friday night. What we did see was a jackpot that climbed to $141 million.
