Lotto 6/49 changing format, including newly added ‘Gold Ball Draw’

Lotto 6/49 is launching a new format come the next draw this week — tickets will feature the the same $3 cost but the main draw where people select their numbers or choose a quick pick will be fixed at $5 million. A special "Gold Ball Draw" with multiple rounds will also be added with a $1-million guaranteed prize, which ensures that a winner takes home either the $1 million or a growing jackpot that starts at $10 million and can run up to $60 million.
