Playing it Straight

Mega Millions doesn’t look down its nose at Pattern streaks and has been known to flirt with jackpots worth over $1 billion. Of course, this momentum can’t be sustained every drawing. Let it be known, however, that when Mega Millions takes a break, it still finds a way to make a big impact!

There were no fancy plays Tuesday night, and the jackpot has a way yet before it’s even close to reaching the billion-dollar mark. The jackpot grew closer to it, though, as it’s now worth $122 million.
