Game Overview

Powerball is a multi-state lottery game that promises players the opportunity to win staggering jackpots. With its presence in 47 states and jurisdictions it is one of the most widely enjoyed lottery games across the United States.

Participants in this exciting game select a combination of five main numbers from a range of 1 to 69 and one Powerball number from a pool of 1 to 26. Matching all these numbers during the draws held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays can make you one of the many Powerball millionaires.

What is the Powerball?

The Powerball is the sixth number on your lottery ticket and can fall anywhere from 1 to 26. Matching the Powerball ensures a minimum win of $4.

Who can participate in Powerball?

The legal age for purchasing lottery tickets varies by state but typically is 18 years. However in some states like Nebraska the legal age is 19 and in Arizona, Louisiana and Iowa it's 21.

Prizes and Odds of Winning

There are a variety of ways to win when playing Powerball. The tier 3 combination of 4 balls and the Powerball can net you $50,000 and the prizes increase dramatically from there! Take a look at the prize tiers offered below (not counting any Power Play multipliers).

MATCH PRIZE POOL ODDS
5 + Powerball Jackpot 1 in 292,201,338
5 $1,000,000 1 in 11,688,053.52
4 + Powerball $50,000 1 in 913,129.18
4 $100 1 in 36,525.17
3 + Powerball $100 1 in 14,494.11
3 $7 1 in 579.76
2 + Powerball $7 1 in 701.33
1 + Powerball $4 1 in 91.98
0 + Mega Ball $4 1 in 38.32

Overall you have a 1 in 24.87 chance of winning a prize when playing Powerball.

The Powerball Power Play Option

This is an optional feature available in all states except for California. At an additional $1.00 per ticket players have the chance to boost their non-jackpot prize winnings by 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, or even 10x (10x only when the jackpot less than $150 million).

The multiplier is randomly selected from a pool of:

  • Two - 5x
  • Three - 4x
  • Thirteen - 3x
  • Twenty-four - 2x
  • One - 10x (jackpot less than $150 million)

Second prize tier multiplication

It's important to note that should you win the second-tier prize and have opted for the Power Play option then your prize will always be doubled. Lower prize tiers will be subject to the multiplier drawn.

Why not California?

In California lottery prize distribution is governed by state law which mandates a pari-mutuel system. In this system individuals holding winning tickets share the overall betting pool based on their wagers with deductions made for expenses. Consequently the Power Play which offers fixed payouts does not align with these legal requirements.

Power Play Draw and Odds

The multiplier number is selected randomly just before the drawing of the Powerball winning numbers. A player must opt for the Power Play feature at the time of purchasing their Powerball ticket and their ticket must match one of the 9 Ways to Win (excluding the jackpot). Here are the odds associated with each multiplier:

Power Play Multiplier Odds

MULTIPLIER 2x 3x 4x 5x 10x
Odds (10x in play) 1 in 1.79 1 in 3.31 1 in 14.33 1 in 21.5 1 in 43
Odds (10x not in play) 1 in 1.75 1 in 3.23 1 in 14 1 in 21 n/a
