Mega Millions: (Current) King of Lotteries

Once, there was a lottery with a massive jackpot. People far and wide shot their shot, hoping that fortune would smile on them, and they would be granted the financial freedom many covet. Earlier this week, a lone player gained that fortune. As that lottery was dethroned, another took the crown.

As of the November 11, 2022 drawing, Mega Millions retained its high jackpot. With none of the players able to match the six numbers, the prize grew to $207 million.
