Powerball Tickets To Double in Price
(IDAHO FALLS) – Paying for a chance to win the lottery is about to get a little more expensive. Lottery officials say that starting Jan. 15, the price for Powerball jackpot tickets will double to $2. The jackpot will also double from $20 million to $40 million. In addition, the number of red Powerballs will be reduced, dropping the odds for any big winners. The second prize win, which matches five white balls without the Powerball, will increase from $200,000 to $1 million.
