How to Play

Powerball costs $2 per play. Select five numbers between 1 and 69 for the white balls, then select one number between 1 and 26 for the red Powerball.  Choose your numbers on a play slip or let the lottery terminal randomly pick your numbers. Drawings are held every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 10:59 pm ET. To watch the drawings, click HERE. The Powerball jackpot grows until it is won. Players win a prize by matching one of the 9 ways to win. The jackpot is won by matching all five white balls in any order and the red Powerball.

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 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.

Double Play®

Play your Powerball numbers again in the Double Play drawing! Double Play is an add-on feature that gives you another chance to match your Powerball numbers in a separate drawing with a top cash prize of $10 million. Add the Double Play feature to your Powerball ticket for an additional $1 per play. Play the same set of numbers in the main Powerball drawing and Double Play drawing. The Double Play drawing is held after every Powerball drawing on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. To watch the drawings, click HERE.

Powerball tickets that include the Double Play feature are eligible to win prizes in both drawings.

You may include both the Power Play and Double Play features on your Powerball ticket, however, the Power Play multiplier does not apply to prizes won in the Double Play drawing.
