Mega Millions® Game Enhanced - Bigger Jackpots & More Millionaires

October 19, 2017

Mega Millions® Game Enhanced
Bigger Jackpots & More Millionaires

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 the $1 million prize and higher secondary prizes.

To allow for these valuable game changes, the Mega Millions® ticket price will change from $1 to $2, with the option to pay an additional $1 for the Megaplier®. 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.

The game change will debut Saturday, October 28, 2017. Drawings will continue to be held on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11:00 p.m.  Mega Millions® tickets may be purchased at any time, but only until 9:50 p.m. on drawing nights.
