Wanting to pump new life into the multi-state Mega Millions Lottery game, a series of changes will take place Saturday . Starting jackpots will go from 15 to 40 million dollars with hopes of faster growing jack pots. The goal is to see billion dollar grand prizes.
There will be things players might not like including a doubling of the price of a ticket from 1 to 2 dollars. In the redesigned game players will have to match five white balls from 1 to 70 and one mega ball number from 1 to 25. New odds of hitting the jackpot increase to 1 out of 303 million . The chance of winning any prize will go from 1 in 15 to 1 in 24 .
