Mega Millions new matrix gives a better chance of winning to players

Posted:

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. – Starting on Tuesday, the Mega Millions will get a little bigger.

Players will see changes to the game such as larger and faster growing jackpots, a million-dollar second price and better odds of winning.

The price of a ticket will still be $1 as the minimum jackpot will grow by at least $5 million after each drawing when a jackpot is not won.

Under the new improvements, the chance of hitting the jackpot will be 1 in 259 million.  The overall chance of winning a prize will be 1 in 15. The new matrix of the game will increase the number of white balls to 75 and the number of gold balls will decrease to 15.
