So I guess the cost of a Powerball Ticket is going up to $2.00/ticket. but the chances of winning is also going up.
The logic behind this....is bigger jackpots will entice more people to play.
Odds of winning are improving because of changes the game is making in the numbers players can choose. The number of Power Ball numbers to choose from will decrease from 39 to 35. That will raise the odds of winning from 1 in 192 million to 1 in 175 million.
Picking the right numbers will have a bigger payoff: The starting jackpot is rising from $20 to $40 million. The amount won for matching all five numbers but not the Power Ball will increase from $200,000 to $1 million.
What do you think? You gonna pay the $2.00???
