The Great August Slow Down

The end of August means summer is winding down. Class is in session, or soon will be, and the countdown begins for the holiday season. For Mega Millions, the end of August 2023 means taking it easy.

As if taking a cue from Lotto Texas, Mega Millions boosted the jackpot to $85 million with little fanfare.
