Mega Millions on the Rebound

When Mega Millions is down, it’s never down for long! This may be due to its quick recovery rate. After a recent reset, it added $2 million to the pot, and this continued a few more times. The addition on August 11, 2020 jumped from a $2 million increase to a $7 million increase. With another night of no jackpot winners, the jackpot jumped from $24 million to $31 million.
