MEGA NUMBERS TOUGH TO HIT

The new changes to the Mega Millions' game is tough to hit.  I purchased 8 tickets with the extra dollar for the 12/24 drawing.  I had FOUR tickets with the winning Mega Ball number..... What did I win?  $12 ... Why?  with the X number being 3 my 4 winning tickets I had NO OTHER WINNING NUMBERS.  75 white ball numbers will give the lottery the big jackpots they want but for players like myself who play for smaller prizes it may hurt.  Oh well, as "LL says, "You can't win if you don't play!"  Good luck..
