Lottery players who take part in the Mega Millions drawings will soon see changes in the game.
Mega Millions drawings will still consist of five white balls and one 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 Mega Balls will decrease to 15. The result will be overall odds of just 1 in 15 to win any prize.
Kentucky Lottery CEO Arch Gleason says the expected increase in players should boost the jackpots more quickly.
