Cost of Mega Millions tickets to go up

By  | 

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Some mega-changes for the Mega Millions lottery.

Starting with next week's draw, the game will cost twice as much to play -- up to $2 per ticket. But you spend more and you'll have the opportunity to potentially win more. Jackpots will now start at $40-million, up from $15-million.

Lottery officials say the changes are a response to customer demands for more high-dollar jackpots. Changes start with the October 31st draw.
