This weekend, Mega Million lottery tickets are doubling in price.

 

Mega Millions tickets will now be $2.

Lottery officials say the game’s jackpot will increase from $15 million to $40 million as a result.

 

Last year, the state lottery brought in over $850 million dollars for Michigan schools.

 

Officials also say people will have a better chance at winning the second tier prize of $1 million.
