LANSING (WWJ) – Multi-state lottery organizers are putting more power into the Powerball jackpot — with bigger jackpots — and pricier tickets.

Starting January 15, 2012, ticket prices for the multi-state game will double to $2.00, but the starting jackpot will also double to $40 million.

The prize for matching all five numbers — but not the Powerball — will jump from $200,000 to $1 million. The move is an effort to differentiate the game from Mega Millions.

    When the Powerball ticket price goes up to $2, I am quiting that game and playing my $$ on the Mega-Millions instead. Both games will have about the same odds of wining the jackpot, but with a $2 wager on Mega-Millions your money goes TWICE AS FAR GIVING YOU TWO CHAQNCES TO WIN.
    Good-Bye Powerball, I will miss you.
