It's not an actual change to the game itself ... I noticed this two weeks ago after the $2.8 million dollar jackpot got hit. The new starting jackpot was $500,000 as always ... but on the next draw they jumped the jackpot to $600,000 ... the lower jackpots always usually increased by $50,000 till it got to around $900,000 and then they would add $100,000.
Well the $600,000 jackpot got hit last last Monday and the new jackpot was again $500,000 last Thursday and for last night (Monday 5th) the jackpot was again at $600,000, not $550,000 ... and now for this Thursday (the 8th) the new jackpot is $700,000 ... not $600,000.
So it looks like the the Match 6 jackpot will increase by $100,000 from now on instead of $50,000.
It's still too early to tell if this is the new deal ... only been going on for two weeks but it will get the jackpot to $1 million dollars faster, when a lot of people probably start buying tickets.
Just a head's up on all this ... as frequently as the Match 6 jackpot has been getting hit over the last two years ... it usually took a whole month to get back to $1 million dollars ... will happen much quicker if these $100,000 increases are permanent.
