The Mega Millions lottery game will undergo big changes this October. Lottery officials say the game is being changed to increase the number of winners.

Mega Millions drawings will still have five white balls and one gold ball for a total of six winning numbers.

The changes will increase the overall odds of winning a prize to 1 in 15 by adding more numbers to pick from for the white balls.
