Mega Millions’ Nostalgia Pangs

Two months—that’s roughly sixty days. That may not sound like a long time, but that’s long enough for big changes to occur. Sometimes, the changes are so sudden that we want to ease into that brave new world or reminisce about the “good ol’ days”. Normally, said days are from a past long gone, but recent events have many of us pining for life as it was back in February.

The April 14, 2020 Mega Millions drawing was a retrospective of Februarys past. That trip down memory lane spawned a repeating Three-Number Combination and a jackpot that bumped up to $159 million.
