A Jackpot’s Speedy Recovery

August is here at last, as well as all the mixed feelings that come with it. Yes, it’s still blazing hot outside and oldsters lament about how schools started after Labor Day, and yet, August is a month of beginnings. The new school year, for one. For Mega Millions, August means dusting off and growing the jackpot again.

Tuesday night proved to be a fruitful one! The same Pattern that knocked the jackpot down to size helped pick it back up again. Once the dust settled, the jackpot had grown to $36 million.
