Other secondary prizes also are being increased, including players winning $10,000 for matching four white balls and the Mega Ball, an increase of $5,000. The catch is that the player is ineligible to win any of the many smaller prizes.

There's also a brand new way to play the Mega Millions that's being rolled out in six states to start, including MA, called "Just The Jackpot". For $3 players will get two chances instead of one to win the top prize.

In the current game, players select five numbers from 1 to 75 and one Mega Ball number from 1 to 15. Players will have a 1 in 24 overall chance of winning a prize. The odds of winning the $1 million second prize are now shorter, at 1 in 12.6 million. Mega Millions President Debbie D. Alford says it's all about keeping up with players' tastes. Mega Millions now is played in 44 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Mega Millions drawings are held Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 p.m.
