they went and changed the mega millions lottery format. now, instead of 56/46 numbers to choose from, there are 75/15. the odds of winning a prize are far lower, but more importantly, the lost numbers no longer run in order. meaning i can't use the final number, 42 as the mega ball. instead i have to choose between 4, 8, and 15. i didn't hear about this, improbably, until i attempted to purchase a ticket today with my old slip. boo.
