A Searing Hot Three-peat

Summer is a distant memory, and winter has decided to pay an early visit. Like Mother Nature, Mega Millions continues with its routine, caring not what mere mortals think. Given how cold it’s been lately, this lottery thought, “Let’s heat things up a bit”. A closer look at the November 18, 2022 results shows that “a bit” is an understatement!

Mega Millions continued to hold the title of “Largest Jackpot”. A Pattern three-peat made the jump to $259 million possible.

Mega Millions: (Current) King of Lotteries

Once, there was a lottery with a massive jackpot. People far and wide shot their shot, hoping that fortune would smile on them, and they would be granted the financial freedom many covet. Earlier this week, a lone player gained that fortune. As that lottery was dethroned, another took the crown.

As of the November 11, 2022 drawing, Mega Millions retained its high jackpot. With none of the players able to match the six numbers, the prize grew to $207 million.

Interesting how Mega Millions has taken to more measured approaches! Inquiring minds want to know: How long will that last?

Saintly Mega Millions

November 1st is All Saints’ Day. Primarily celebrated by Catholics, it commemorates all the saints of the church, both known and unknown. “Saintly” isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when one sees or hears “Mega Millions”. This lottery is notorious for all kinds of chicanery, not to mention the controversial nature of lotteries themselves. After all the excitement and fun of scary movies, haunted hayrides and candy binges, many people want to take it easy. So do lotteries.

Mega Millions didn’t start November with a bang, opting to go for a more dignified approach. This paid off, for the jackpot grew to $110 million.

Mega Millions Has a Monster of its Own

A monster is loose in the lottery world. A jackpot of mind-boggling size has become too big to ignore. Thousands, millions even, are ready to take a chance and bring this beast to heel. As players aim for that monstrous near-billion-dollar Powerball jackpot, a good-sized jackpot is lurking in Mega Millions. A smaller jackpot should be easier to capture, yes?

If only it were that simple! Mega Millions, with semi-fresh memories of having its beast of a jackpot brought down to size, wasn’t determined to be taken down again so soon. Through careful planning, the Mega Millions jackpot grew to a hearty $87 million.
