A (Near) Playback Simmering in the Heat

We are truly living in interesting times. Only three years into the 2020s, and we’ve had to contend with a pandemic, inflation, and wars. This summer is, without a doubt, the hottest summer on record, and there are fears that this may be one of the coolest summers for the rest of our lives.

Meanwhile, the lottery world chugs along, blissfully unaware of the chaos plaguing the human one. Two jackpots worth over one billion dollars were claimed, and their respective lotteries are determined to soar to those heights again! Mega Millions, for example, can show dogged determination in the face of being forced to suddenly reset. Fortunately, that prospect is in the rear-view mirror!

The prospect of a jackpot reset was crushed Friday night, as the jackpot grew to $67 million.
