Mega Millions’ Mid-Month Encore Melee

If you think about it, mid-May is a crucial transition period for so many people. College graduations are underway, high school seniors are about to take to the stage, and the young ‘uns are counting down the days until school lets out. In a world of rising costs and uncertainty, one thing that’s certain these days is that whoever has millions (and millions) of dollars can have a neverending summer of sorts, provided the cards are played right.

It’s a guarantee that there were college grads and (soon-to-be) high school grads who tried their hand at Mega Millions May 17, 2022. It’s a guarantee that all were disappointed in the outcome. By the power of a Pattern encore, there were no overnight millionaires. However, a prize that grew to $131 million was sure to make some players even more determined to play again Friday night.
