Coming Upon a Jackpot Threshold

Humans are bonding creatures. We bond with family, friends, even complete strangers. It’s through these bonds that we socialize and build new relationships. The strength of a bond is tested when a threshold is reached. After all, the strongest bonds are forged in fire.

As we’ve seen these past few months, the bond Mega Millions  has with its jackpot isn’t so easily broken. The good times continued to roll, as the jackpot slipped from the players’ grip once more. It was the aftermath of the January 5, 2021 drawing that brought Mega Millions to a threshold. One side, the current side, had jackpots less than half a billion dollars. With a jackpot that grew to $490 million, the path to the other side, the side of mega riches (and potential madness) came into view.
