The Golden Nuggets of Mega Millions

What comes to mind when you hear or see the word “California”? Whether you’re thinking of Silicon Valley or thrown into fits of irrational rage, there’s no denying that The Golden State is an economic powerhouse. Being the most populous state in the U.S. is nothing to sneeze at, either. And it was one, just one of those residents who could claim the $22 million prize offered in the July 31, 2020 drawing.

The jackpot was swooped up faster than anyone could say, “Gnarly!” Naturally, the jackpot reset itself to $20 million.
