Mega Millions’ Jackpot Splashdown

When other business (read: day job) calls, you gotta do what you gotta do. A special thanks to our Mega Millions analyst Romulun Harris for doing the Wednesday and Thursday night blog posts.

The end of July is a bittersweet time. As sweltering hot as it has been, it’s hard to believe that another school year is right around the corner. Those “Back to School” ads make it hard to forget, don’t they? This year, we can add another bittersweet moment: the toppling of the Mega Millions jackpot.

On the night of July 29, 2022, a lone player from Illinois took on Mega Millions and walked away a billionaire (pre-tax, of course). Naturally, the jackpot reset to $20 million.

Lotto Texas’s jackpot jumped to $7.75 million, and Powerball’s, fueled by a Pattern streak, soared to $119 million.
