May Mega Millions Grow Ever Larger

Cinco de Mayo, like St. Patrick’s Day, is a holiday that’s bigger in the United States than in its country of origin (Mexico and Ireland, respectively). Large celebrations that may or may not involve tacos, but a lot of drinking, are a highlight. This year, Cinco de Mayo coincided with a Mega Millions drawing!

Although Mega Millions didn’t start the month with a Pattern three-peat, and this past Tuesday night was “encoreless”, this lottery continued to have the largest jackpot out of The Big Three. If you recall, these are Lotto Texas, Powerball, and Mega Millions, the star of today’s post. A lack of grand prize winners meant more money to be won in a future drawing. The jackpot grew to $231 million.
