Good news for anyone hoping to strike it rich. The Mega Millions lottery is getting bigger and better.

The starting jackpot will now be $15-million - that's a $3-million increase. In addition, there will be a one million dollar second prize now.

The first drawing with the changes will happen Tuesday October 22nd.
