As Powerball celebrates its 20th anniversary, state lottery officials are preparing to roll out some changes to the popular game.
Andrew Bohage with the Wisconsin Lottery says efforts are underway to freshen up Powerball. Those will include increasing the minimum jackpot to $40 million and improving the odds of winning for players.
In order to do that though, Bohage says a price increase for tickets will be needed. Starting January 15th, single ticket prices will double to $2.
Bohage says more money coming into the game means better benefits for taxpayers. Proceeds from Powerball sales go toward property tax relief.
