Rules of the game: Powerball
In Powerball, players must select five numbers between 1 and 69, and one additional “Powerball” number between 1 and 26. One does not need to get all six numbers to win some cash. However, the more numbers correctly guessed, the larger the prize becomes.
There are three drawings a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. The jackpot grows after each drawing if no winner takes home the grand prize.
What are Power Play and Double Play?
If players pay $1 extra for Power Play, their winnings will be multiplied by two, three, four, five, or ten, depending on the multiplier number picked out of the hat before the draw takes place. Power Play isn’t applied to the jackpot, and the multiplier is never higher than two if you win the $1m second prize.
For an additional $1, a player’s numbers can also be entered into a second draw, known as Double Play, with a maximum jackpot of $10m.
