How to Play
It's easy to get started with Powerball - just follow these simple steps.
Choose five main numbers from 1 to 69, plus one red Powerball number from 1 to 26. Or mark Quick Pick and the computer will select your numbers at random. Each wager costs $2, and you can play up to five times (boards) on each bet slip.
Power Play increases your non-jackpot winnings. Add the option to your ticket for an extra $1 per play. During each draw, a Power Play number is randomly selected. Non-jackpot prizes are multiplied by that number - 2, 3, 4, or 5 times. If the jackpot is below $150 million, a 10 times multiplier may be drawn. Power Play does not affect the jackpot, and it always doubles the Match 5 second prize for matching five white balls to $2 million, no matter which number is drawn.
Multi-Draw is the easy way to play your lucky numbers for up to 20 draws in a row. You may play 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, or 20 consecutive draws - just mark the number on the bet slip. Multi-Draw applies to all boards (wagers).
Complete your purchase by the cut-off time of 9:45 pm ET on the day of the draw.
The total ticket cost will reflect the number of wagers and draws you've selected, and whether you've added Power Play. Tickets cannot be cancelled.
Always check your tickets for accuracy, sign the backs, and store them safely.
After the draw, come back to this page to check the results and see if you've won a prize. Match all six numbers drawn by the lottery to win the jackpot. There are plenty of other exciting prizes too, so make sure to check your tickets.
You'll need to be age 18 or older to purchase Powerball tickets or claim prizes.
