The Tuesday Night Labors of Mega Millions

After the long Labor Day weekend comes the inevitable. Whether remote or in-person, millions must return to work and school. One silver lining is that it’s a shorter week for many of us. Still bummed out about returning to the grind? Mega Millions is hard at work, making you and many others fight for its prizes. Oh sure, Mega Millions could just let the prize fall in someone’s lap, but where’s the fun in that?

Mega Millions teased the idea of a playback Tuesday night. Although the playback idea fell through, all who participated in the September 6, 2022 drawing found themselves face-to-face with a very common Pattern and a jackpot that stood at a grand $210 million.
