Increased Division Prize Pool to $5,000,000

Improved chance of winning any prize
The chance of winning any prize has been boosted from 1 in 85 chance of winning to 1 in 42! This improvement comes due to the change to division 6 winning combination to 3 winning numbers instead of 1-2 winning numbers and both supplementary numbers.
