Mega Millions Changes To
Increase Number of Winners

http://m.nbcchicago.com/nbcchicago/pm_107717/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=dubcre08

The Mega Millions game is undergoing
big changes in October.

Lottery officials say the game matrix is
being revised to increase the number of
prize winners among those who
purchase the $1 tickets.

The minimum jackpot for Mega Millions
is going from $12 million to $15 million,
and will grow by at least $5 million after
each drawing if nobody matches the
numbers.

Mega Millions drawings will still consist
of five white balls and one gold ball for a
total of six winning numbers.

Under the new system, the number of
white balls will increase from 56 to 75,
and the number of gold balls will
decrease from 46 to 15. The changes
mean the new overall odds of winning a
prize are one in 15.

What incredible hype.

In other words there will be a whole lot more people hitting the bottom matrix number and a whole lot more drawings between jackpot payouts.
