The Playback Booster Pack

Roughly 1.5 weeks ago, Mega Millions was dethroned. As you’d expect, there was a bruised ego but most importantly, the jackpot was reset. Over this time period, Mega Millions began the climb back to the top. Gradually, the jackpot grew. Come September 25, 2020, the jackpot took a leap! The six winning numbers weren’t matched, and the prize jumped from $24 million to $32 million. It was thanks to that boost that, for the time being, Mega Millions doesn’t have the smallest prize.
