Mega Millions Takes a Breather

Previously, on “Lottery Trend”:

  • Lotto Texas and Powerball extended their domain to Mondays, meaning three nights a week of their madness. August 23, 2021 was the first night featuring this change.
  • This shakeup made the addition of another blogger necessary. Romulun Harris will give you the rundown of these lotteries’ Monday night ventures.
  • Currently, Mega Millions still plays only on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Last week was a busy one for Mega Millions! Both drawings saw similar spreads, and how about that playback this past Friday? Exerting all that energy, not to mention all that happened earlier this week, Tuesday night was the perfect opportunity for this lottery to take a breather. The rest proved beneficial, for the jackpot grew to $288 million.
