The Tuesday Night Double Take

Tuesday nights generally aren’t wild, Mardi Gras notwithstanding. People are just getting back into the groove of the work or school week, and they’re already thinking about Friday. Mega Millions, free from the madness of tyrannical teachers and ego tripping bosses, can be as wild as it darn well pleases. Often, as we saw this past Tuesday, the results feed the jackpot beast.

September 12, 2023 was of those nights where there was not one but two encores! Those had a hand in boosting the jackpot to $162 million.
