The Mega Millions (Not) at the End of the Rainbow

St. Patrick’s Day comes but once a year. ‘Tis a festive day, with young and old alike donning green and catching parades. More adventurous types may fancy themselves some green beer. This year, people could try their luck with Mega Millions. For every night without a winner, the prize goes up. A larger prize means more financial freedom, more time to party, even! The catch? You must play. The other catch? You and Mega Millions need to see eye-to-eye on the numbers played. Seeing as the jackpot grew to $272 million, no such connection existed.
