Aristocratic Mega Millions

Mega Millions considers itself an elite of sorts. After all, it has flirted with billion-dollar jackpots, and currently has the largest prize (Powerball and Lotto Texas are in second and third place, respectively). And, that prize grew once again. With no one selecting the six winning numbers, the jackpot ascended to $67 million.
