Changes coming to Mega Millions lottery game
But there will be more fantasy-fueled dreams of hitting it big as $450 to more than $500 million jackpots become the norm.
McCann said Mega Millions still holds the record jackpot — $656 million in March 2012 — but the changes should result in more jackpots in the $450 to $500 million or more range, making it competitive with Powerball, which already made similar changes. The Mega Millions ticket will still cost $1, although for $1 more a customer can buy a Megaplier, that could quintuple a lower tier prize.
