How to Play Powerball
Powerball drawings are held three times a week at 10:59 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. In 2021, Monday drawings were added. The cost of a ticket is $2, but you can add the Power Play for $1 to increase your potential prize up to five times the original prize amount (except for the jackpot and Match 5). When the jackpot is less than $150 million, a 10x Power Play option is available.
Each player chooses five numbers between 1 and 69 for the white balls and one number between 1 and 26 for the red Powerball. You can, however, request that the lottery machine generates a quick pick ticket with random numbers for you. Prizes range from $4 if you match the Powerball to $1 million if you match all five white balls (except in California) to the jackpot if you match all six balls. On the Powerball website, you can view all of the prize payouts.

The major US lotteries offer two jackpot payout options: annuity and cash. The annuity option pays out in installments over time. There is an initial payment, followed by 29 annual payments that increase by 5% each year. The cash option is much lower than the advertised jackpot, but it is paid in one lump sum. This means you do not have to wait decades to receive all of the funds.
