A Whiff of $2 Billion

Mega Millions is certainly hardy! This lottery has masterfully thwarted all who desire its jackpot. Dreams of early retirement have shriveled and blown away in the presence of Mega Millions these past few months. Looking at Friday night’s results, Mega Millions is like this summer’s disturbingly persistent heat. That is, Mega Millions is not relenting anytime soon.

August 4, 2023 was much like any other Friday night. Millions started their weekend off with a night out and a stopover at their local convenience store. That billion-dollar jackpot was too big to ignore, so why not take a shot at it, right? Alas, like so many other Friday nights over the past three, soon to be four months, no one walked away with the prize. As the jackpot grew to $1.55 billion, the idea of a $2 billion jackpot became less farfetched.
