Powerball winning will be tougher next year
It will be tougher to win the Wisconsin Lottery's Powerball jackpot in the New Year. But it will be easier to win at least something.
Four white regular numbers will be added starting Jan. 4, for a total of 59. And three red Powerball numbers will be removed, for a total of 39.
That will toughen the odds of winning the jackpot from one-in-146 million to one-in-195 million.
The idea is to create larger-and-faster-growing jackpots.
