The popular Powerball Lottery is a multi-state lotto featuring a combined large jackpot and various cash prizes, offering players nine ways to win. It's just $1 (or $2) per play for a chance to win millions; the Jackpot starts at $10 million and continually grows larger until somebody wins. Jackpot winners may select a cash option to receive approximately half of the advertised jackpot in cash, rather than annual payments over 29 years. This option is valid for up to 60 days after the prize is claimed.

In the Powerball Lotto, five balls are chosen at random out of a drum containing 59 White balls numbered 1 to 59. A sixth ball, the powerball, is then chosen from a second drum containing 42 Red balls, numbered 1 to 42. To play, a person chooses five primary (white) numbers and one powerball (red) number.

Payoffs are made depending on how many white numbers match the player's choices and whether or not the powerball is matched (see Payoffs for a table of the possible winning combinations). The odds of winning a cash prize are approximately 1 in 36, while the odds of winning the Jackpot are approximately 1 in 146 million.

Players also have a chance to multiply their prizes (except the jackpot) by up to 5 times with the Power Play option. For an extra $1 per play, you are eligible for Power Play.

After each Powerball drawing, a Power Play number is randomly selected using a spin wheel. If you win a prize on your Powerball ticket (not the jackpot), and you have purchased the Power Play option, you receive the regular prize amount multiplied by the Power Play number that was selected. For example, if you win $7 on Powerball and have purchased Power Play for that ticket, you will win $7 multiplied by the Power Play number (2, 3, 4, or 5) which could be up to $35.
