Price Tag: $57 Million

Nothing like a weekend road trip to get away for a bit! Oh sure, there’s that whole pandemic thing going around, but this is also a camping trip, and there’s just no way you’ll run into anyone else, right? And you left on a Friday, but you left just before the traffic picked up. One great thing about road trips is that you can stop over at greasy spoons or snap pictures of landmarks. Try doing that from an airplane! Oh, and it’s cheaper than flying, too.

Mega Millions managed to escape the crowd, but it wasn’t easy. Teasing players with the idea of a playback (Spoiler: there wasn’t one, though it was close) and throwing in a repeating Three-Number Combination kept players at bay. All that to the tune of a jackpot hike to $57 million.
