I've never been much of a lottery player. I never win anything.
But if you play Mega Millions, you should know that starting on October 31st, they're increasing the jackpots!
Tickets will go from $1 to $2 per play, and the odds are changing a bit:
Mega Millions requires players to match five numbers (white balls) and one Mega Ball with differing odds in order to win the jackpot prize. A new rule will also alter the odds of the game by decreasing the number of white balls from 75 to 70 and increasing the number of Mega Balls from 15 to 25.
Officials said the change will make it easier for players to win the game’s second-tier $1 million prize for matching five white balls, while also increasing the likelihood of the jackpot reaching $1 billion.
I don't need to hit a billion. I'd be perfectly happy winning a million and calling it a day! Good luck, friends!
