CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Lottery officials have re-designed the Mega Millions game to create larger jackpots.
Starting Oct. 28, ticket prices will be raised from $1 to $2.
The higher ticket prices will bump up the starting jackpots from $15 million to $40 million.
Lottery officials say jackpots will grow faster overall and there are better odds to win $1 million prizes and higher secondary prizes.
Mega Millions drawings are held Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 p.m.
The largest Mega Millions jackpot was $656 million in 2012. Three winners from Kansas, Illinois and Maryland split the prize.
