Mega Millions Has a Monster of its Own

A monster is loose in the lottery world. A jackpot of mind-boggling size has become too big to ignore. Thousands, millions even, are ready to take a chance and bring this beast to heel. As players aim for that monstrous near-billion-dollar Powerball jackpot, a good-sized jackpot is lurking in Mega Millions. A smaller jackpot should be easier to capture, yes?

If only it were that simple! Mega Millions, with semi-fresh memories of having its beast of a jackpot brought down to size, wasn’t determined to be taken down again so soon. Through careful planning, the Mega Millions jackpot grew to a hearty $87 million.

Mega Millions won’t be part of Halloween proper, that honor goes to Lotto Texas and Powerball, but this lottery will kick off November. Is another Australia Play in the cards, or will Mega Millions use another strategy?
