Game Is Changing For Mega Millions Players

The rules of the game are changing in the Mega Millions Lottery.

The changes come as the state of California becomes the 12th state to join the game. Players will now choose five numbers from 1 to 56 and a Mega Ball number from 1 to 46.

Jackpots will now start at $12 million instead of $10 million. Second place rewards are now sweeter as those winners will now get $250,000 instead of $175,000 and the third prize goes from $5,000 to $10,000. The bad news is, your odds of winning go up. The odds go from one in 135-million to one in 176 million. These changes take effect June 22nd. So you still have time to compete with better odds this week. The next Mega Millions drawing is Friday night with a $42 million jackpot.

Wednesday night's Lotto Texas jackpot is worth $59 million.
