Big Changes Next Week For The Mega Millions
If you play the Mega Millions, you'll notice some changes starting this Halloween. First, the ticket price will increase to $2 per ticket. Second, the grand prize will begin at $40 million instead of $15 million. Third, (and in my opinion this is where it gets a little confusing) players will now have to match five white balls from 1 to 70 and one Mega Ball number from 1 to 25.
According to USA Today, the new design of the game decreases the number of white balls from 75 but increases the number of red balls by 10, so the odds of winning the jackpot increase from 1 in almost 259 million to 1 in about 303 million. Also, the update will (allegedly) make it easier for players to win the game’s second-tier $1 million prize for matching five white balls — 1 in 12.6 million vs. the present 1 in 18.5 million.
