  • California Lottery to join Mega Millions game

    In pursuit of ever-bigger jackpots and higher ticket sales, the California Lottery Commission voted Tuesday to join Mega Millions, an 11-state game with a record prize almost twice as big as that generated by the California lottery.

    The move is expected to boost lottery sales by $500 million a year, of which at least 34 percent must by law go to schools.

    But consumers who play the new game instead of SuperLotto Plus -- which will continue to exist -- face much steeper odds. The chances of winning a SuperLotto Plus jackpot are 1 in 41 million. The odds of hitting a Mega Millions jackpot are now 1 in 135 million -- and they will likely get higher once California, the nation's most populous state, joins the game sometime before the end of the year.

    I guess not enough people are buying the tickets anymore to make it worth it anymore.

      I'm pretty sure the odds on the old game are really about a bazillion to one anyway since I've never hit anything on it.
