That Mega Millions jackpot is still up for grabs for a lucky player or players with the winning numbers. No one picked the correct digits in yesterday’s Mega Millions draw so the jackpot took a tumble and now stands at $75 million. Yesterday’s numbers: 2, 14, 26, 50, 56 and Mega Ball 12.
The next drawing is Friday, August 13. Hmm, usually retailers do a bang-up business in lottery ticket sales on the day of the drawing when the jackpot gets this hefty. Not that I’m giving credence to that old superstition about Friday the 13th being unlucky — but , ah tomorrow, Thursday, might be a better day to purchase a Mega Millions ticket.
