I remember working at uncle's convenience store when I was growing up, and Mega Millions first came out. I was a little nugget. A naive nugget, because I assume it was just a Massachusetts game -- clearly, it's national. You're a dummy, Jadd.
Regardless, starting this Saturday, Oct 28, the ticket price to pay Mega Millions will increase from $1 to $2. Now, while that reeks of sucktitude for some, that also means the payouts increase! Starting jackpot now for Mega Millions is $15 mil -- BUT, with the new price, the starting price will be $40 mil! PLUS there's a special $3 game you can play called "Just The Jackpot" where you basically get 2 tickets for just over the price of 1, but like the name says, you'll only win the jackpot, none of the ancillary prizes offered with the other number combos.
