Mega Millions and the February Climb

Mega Millions’ January run had a fitting end. After watching the jackpot grow for several months, it was brought down to size this past Friday night. It stands to reason that starting February with a slow, steady climb in the jackpot totals is also fitting. On that cold February night, the jackpot began its climb upward and rested at $22 million.
