System glitch for some Mega Millions tickets sold on Friday

Last week, the price of Mega Millions tickets went up to $2 a ticket and starting jackpots also increased to $40 million. The Gold Mega Ball was 13, and the Megaplier Multiplier was 05.

Mega Millions tickets sold during that time will be honored; the Virginia Lottery said in a news release that the price of the ticket and a replacement ticket will be refunded to those with incorrect tickets.

If you do win a smaller prize with a ticket you bought during this period, the prize will be honored, officials said.

To win the game's jackpot, players now must match five white balls from 1 to 70 and one Mega Ball number from 1 to 25.

The changes are a response to consumers' interest in large jackpots, Mega Millions President Debbie D. Alford said in the news release.

"We have a demand for innovation to keep fresh, entertaining lottery games and to deliver the attention-grabbing jackpots", said Alford, who also is president and CEO of the Georgia Lottery Corp. An extra $1 "Power Play" multiplies nonjackpot prizes. But in March 2012, Mega Millions reached a jackpot of $656 million, its largest ever, and in December 2013, a $648 million prize was awarded. By comparison, Powerball holds the world's record for a lottery jackpot with its $1.586 billion jackpot in January 2016. The store receives a $10,000 bonus from the Virginia Lottery for selling the winning ticket.
