Changes to the Powerball
BATON ROUGE, LA. (FOX44) - The Louisiana Lottery is getting ready for some big changes to Powerball.
They include a bigger starting jackpot and better odds of winning
The jackpot will start at 40 million, instead of 20. When there isn't a winner the jackpot will go up at least ten million dollars.
Also odds of taking home a prize go to one in 32 instead of one in 35.
But there is a catch; the price for a ticket will "double" from one dollar to two.
Changes start on January 15th.
