Frequently Asked Questions

What changes have occurred to the POWERBALL game?

An updated version of the POWERBALL game will debut with changes that should continue to deliver big jackpots while upping some other significant prizes in the game. Plays will still cost $2 each, and there will be better overall odds of winning any prize, a big bump up to $50,000 for the game’s third prize level, and a chance for players to multiply most winnings by up to 10 times when the jackpot is $150 million or less..

When will the changes take effect?

Sales in the redesigned game will begin on Sunday, October 4, and the first drawing with the new features will be on Wednesday, October 7. There will be changes to both sets of numbers that players use. Players may choose their first five numbers from a set of 69 (currently 59) white balls and their POWERBALL from a pool of 26 (currently 35) red balls. The end result will be better overall odds of winning any prize with extended odds of winning the jackpot.

What does this mean for players?

POWERBALL jackpots will continue to start at $40 million and the game’s second prize for matching the first five numbers but missing the POWERBALL will still be $1 million. The game’s third prize level gets a significant five-fold increase from $10,000 to $50,000 for matching four of the first five numbers and the POWERBALL.

The game’s Power Play option also will get a big expansion with a 10X feature. Currently, players can multiply many prizes by up to five times by adding the Power Play option for an extra $1 per play. Under the new design, the Power Play option will be expanded to multiply most prizes (except the jackpot and Match 5 level) by up to 10 times whenever the game’s advertised annuitized jackpot is $150 million or less. The Match 5 prize of $1 million will continue to double to $2 million with the Power Play added.

Power Play

Ask for Power Play® with your Powerball purchase!

For an additional $1 per play, the Power Play feature can multiply non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times!

The multiplier number is randomly selected just before each drawing.

The 10X multiplier is only in play when the advertised jackpot annuity is $150 million or less.

The Match 5 prize with Power Play is always $2 million.

Multi-Draw

Play the same set of numbers in multiple drawings!

Select the number of consecutive drawings you want to play in the Multi-Draw or Advance Play section of your play slip or tell the retailer how many drawings you wish to play.

The number of Multi-Draws or Advance Plays available for purchase is dependent on the selling jurisdiction.

How TALL

A Powerball jackpot of $40 million may not seem like much, but ask yourself this – is $40 million really a small amount of money? Is the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. a small building?

If you were to stack $100 bills, take a look at the heights the money would reach at each estimated jackpot amount.
