The price of a Powerball tickets in South Carolina will be going up on Sunday January 15, 2012 to $2 a ticket.
The price increase is aimed at making higher jackpots and more millionaires. South Carolina Education Lottery officials know the increase in prices will see more of the $100 million dollar payouts that seem to get people excited, and rope in those who don't normally play the lottery.
Another change is a $1 million dollar prize for those who match all five white ball numbers on a single ticket, but who don't get the red Powerball number correctly. The old prize for this was $200,000.
