LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Lottery players who take part in the Mega Millions drawings will soon see changes in the game.

Kentucky Lottery officials say starting Oct. 22, minimum jackpots will increase from $12 million to $15 million and jackpots will grow at least $5 million after each drawing where the jackpot isn't won.

Mega Millions drawings will still consist of five white balls and one Mega Ball, for a total of six winning numbers. Under a new matrix, the number of white balls will increase to 75 and the number of Mega Balls will decrease to 15. The result will be overall odds of just 1 in 15 to win any prize.

Kentucky Lottery CEO Arch Gleason says the expected increase in players should boost the jackpots more quickly.
