Bigger Jackpots, Bigger Wins with new Mega Millions!

MegaMillions_MegaPlierHey, Mega Millions fans! Do you want a larger starting jackpot? A chance to win up to $5 million with Megaplier? How about a $1 million second-tier prize? Get ready, because those are all changes set to happen with Mega Millions starting with the October 22 drawing! The best part, the price of a ticket will stay at $1!

Starting with the October 22 drawing, the starting jackpot will increase from $12 million to $15 million, and jackpots will grow by at least $5 million after each drawing in which no one hits! The old Mega Millions game offered a $250,000 Match 5 prize, but now you’ll win $1 million for matching five white balls! Plus, Megaplier is now expanded to a five factor, so for an additional $1, you could win up to $5,000,000 without matching all six numbers!

Mega Millions drawings will still consist of five white balls and one gold Mega Ball, for a total of six winning numbers. Under a new matrix, the number of white balls will increase to 75 and the number of gold balls will decrease to 15. The result will be overall odds of just 1 in 15 to win any prize! The odds of winning the jackpot will be 1 in 259 million. The matrix was last changed in 2005.

Sales of the game will be suspended after the drawing on October 18th, and sales of the new Mega Millions game will begin on October 20th.
