Mega Millions introduces bigger prizes, better odds

October 17, 2013

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.

Possibly the best news of all is the overall odds of winning will go from 1-in-40 to nearly 1-in-15.

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

You can see those winning numbers from the Mega Millions drawings on Tuesday's and Fridays during Action News at 11.
