If you like to play Mega Millions, get ready to play a new way. Changes to the jackpot game, announced in July, will begin after Friday’s drawing.
Here are some highlights:
- Ticket prices aren’t changing. A Mega Millions ticket will remain $1 or – if the Megaplier feature is added – $2.
- The range of numbers for the white balls expands from 1-56 to 1-75. The numbers for the Mega Ball shift from 1-46 to 1-15.
- The new universe of numbers means new odds and new prize amounts at every level.
- Jackpots will start bigger, and grow faster. The jackpot will begin at $15 million and – when there is no “perfect ticket” – roll by at least $5 million.
- The prize for matching all five white balls on a $1 ticket jumps from $250,000 to $1 million.

N.C. Education Lottery should get involved with the original Mega states. They are claiming they have no control, blaming it on the other guys. Oh yeah how about fixing the leaking roofs on our kidss' schools,get involved or change your name from N.C. Education Lottery.Blame yourself no the other guys.
Not worth playing. You have lost another customer.
Shame on you Lottery Commission. It is not worth playing.
