If you didn’t win, don’t worry though. Another chance for a high jackpot will be along soon. The company that runs the Mega Millions lottery has been making tweaks over the last few years to help jackpots grow faster and to larger amounts. They have done this through a combination of changing the odds of the lottery and increasing the price. It probably won’t be long before we see the prizes rising up into the 100’s of millions of dollars again.
