Mega Millions’ Friday Night Fiesta

For our U.S. readers, Cinco de Mayo often conjures up images of Mexican (and Tex-Mex) food, margaritas, sombreros, and probably donkeys (sorry, burros). For May 5, 2023, Mega Millions was also part of the celebration. With that kind of prize money, you could go on a Mexican holiday and have enough for many more to come! Alas, Mega Millions wasn’t in a generous mood, and the prize grew to $83 million.
