Mega Millions’ March Reset

Jackpots rise to a certain threshold then come tumbling down. Whether it’s $47 million or over $1 billion, once the prize is won, the jackpot resets, and the cycle repeats. We call it the “rise-reset-rise” cycle.

Mega Millions entered the “Reset” leg of the cycle Tuesday night. Just as someone in New York became $126 million richer (pre-taxes), the jackpot was reset to $20 million.
