ATLANTA (AP) Lottery officials say the Mega Millions game will have bigger and faster growing jackpots as a result of a series of upcoming changes.

Georgia Lottery Corp. said Friday that minimum jackpots will grow by at least $5 million after each drawing when there is no winner. And the second place prize will be increased to $1 million from $250,000.

Tickets reflecting the changes go on sale Oct. 19 for the Oct. 22 drawing.

Mega Millions drawings consist of five white balls and one Mega Ball, for a total of six winning numbers. The number of white balls will increase to 75, and the Mega Ball will decrease to 15.

Mega Millions is played in 43 states. Drawings are held Tuesday and Friday.
