Mega Millions’ Blockbuster Jackpot

Movie theaters almost seem antiquated, don’t they? Even the best performing movies end up on a streaming service and/or made available for purchase six weeks later. Why on earth would anyone go? For one, humans are social creatures that need more than the simulacra of social media (Translation: We thrive better when physically interacting with others, even if tangentially), and some movies just look and sound better on the big screen. Going further, some movies connect people on a more global scale, raking in hundreds of millions, sometimes billions of dollars and become part of the wider culture. The blockbusters. Now, blockbusters are associated with movies, true, but let’s consider a different kind. A lottery kind.

June 28, 2022 was a blockbuster night for Mega Millions. Thousands of people shot their shot, and thousands of people could connect over the disappointment of loss. Regardless of how players felt about their losses, the jackpot grew to $360 million.
