"Mega Millions now offers a $15 million starting jackpot and the jackpot will grow by at least $5 million each time it rolls," said Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Todd Rucci. "The overall odds of winning any Mega Millions prize have improved, which will create more winners."

The ticket price remains $1. The Megaplier option price also remains $1. Mega Millions drawings still consist of five white balls and one gold Mega Ball, for a total of six winning numbers. Under the new game, the number of white balls has increased to 75 and the number of gold balls (the Mega Ball) has decreased to 15. The result will be overall odds of just 1-in-14.71 to win any prize.
