Mega Millions Takes and Gives

Lotteries giveth, and lotteries taketh away. The opportunity to win millions of dollars is enticing. Throwing off the shackles of the rat race, debts being paid off, and security for future generations can all be yours if you just pick the six winning numbers!

If only it were that simple. Lotteries like Mega Millions aren’t just going to give their millions away! You can’t win if you don’t (or can’t) play and winning isn’t guaranteed.

If you were one of the millions who took part in the October 16, 2020 Mega Millions drawing, then you knew how cruel lotteries can be. Even being just one number off made the difference between $77 million and going back to work Monday morning. On the other hand, persistence can be its own reward; the prize jumped to $86 million.
