Mega Millions: Stuck

“What’s going on?! It’s not supposed to be like this!” Mega Millions thought.

Someone just had to win that massive jackpot, and on Friday the 13th, no less. Ever since, the jackpot never strayed far from $20 million. Sure, the jackpot would climb up a little, but it would reset just as swiftly. Speaking of reset, that’s exactly what happened Tuesday night. Now Mega Millions, fuming and spitting nails, must contend with another $20 million prize.
