According to USA MEGA, the Mega Millions Jackpot was hit for $290 Million ($164 Million in cash value) the night before after a nearly two month run. The sole winning ticket was purchased in Massachusetts, but there were also 35 winners of the second place prize of $175,000 in eleven states.
The winning numbers were 10-25-38-39-50 + MB 12. I would guess that event brought a lot of hopefuls and curiosity seekers to this site for information.
