Lottery News: Mega Millions Enhanced

Mega Millions is being redesigned to bring more value to its players with larger starting jackpots and faster rolls. Starting jackpots will more than double from $15 million to $40 million, and jackpots will grow faster overall. There will be better odds to win $1 million prizes and higher secondary prizes.

The ticket price will also change, moving from $1 to $2.

In the redesigned game, players select five numbers from 1 to 70, and one Mega Ball number from 1 to 25.

Players will have a 1 in 24 overall chance of winning a prize.

Players may add the Megaplier® option for an extra $1 per play to increase non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, or 5 times.
