Changes to the Powerball

Wednesday, November 2, 2011 - 11:15am

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.
