NH Lottery officials say that the revamped game will start with a minimum $40-million jackpot, up from the current $15-million. The cost of a ticket will double to $2 per play.

Players will pick 5 numbers from 1 to 70 (now it is 1 to 75) and a Mega Ball number between 1 and 25 (now it is 1 to 15).

The changes go in to effect Saturday, with the first drawing under the new system on Tuesday.
