Mega Millions Rebuilds

So began another cycle of build->win->rebuild! That is:

  • Build – build up the jackpot
  • Win – at least one player picks the six winning numbers
  • Rebuild – starting over; Mega Millions (and Powerball) start at $20 million

After being dealt a blow to the jackpot (and ego), Mega Millions focused on building up again. Fortune favored Mega Millions, for no one picked the six winning numbers. Imagine the uproar, the scandal, of being knocked down twice in a row! A jackpot whose worth jumped to $22 million is as good a start as any.
