The US PowerBall is a multi-state lottery game played across 45 states in the USA. Regularly producing some of the largest lottery jackpots in the world, US PowerBall also continues to produce the most excitement with several rollover jackpots of over 100 million dollars every year.
The biggest jackpot won on the Powerball was 590.5 million USD in May 2013 by a ticket holder in Florida.
Since the lotto's revamp in Jan 2012, more than 730 players have won the secondary prize of 1 million dollars, of which, 120 doubled their prize to 2 million dollars by taking the Power Play option.
There are eight sub-jackpot prize divisions, giving you lots of chances of winning a prize!
And you always win a prize just by matching only the PowerBall.
The US PowerBall is a 69/26 double-matrix lotto game. To win the PowerBall jackpot you need to pick five numbers from a possible 69 plus one number from 26 and match them with the balls drawn in the game.
The PowerBall Lotto is drawn twice per week on Wednesday and Saturday.
The jackpot starts at 40 million USD and continues to rollover until it is won. 10 million USD is added to the jackpot prize with each rollover. There is no jackpot cap.
Second prize is set at 1,000,000 dollars.
The Power Play option is used to multiply your winnings (other than the jackpot and the match 5 prize) by an amount which is randomly selected before the game. This can be x2, x3, x4 or x5.
Every time you match the PowerBall (the red ball) - you win a prize!
The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 24.
You can win a prize just by matching the Power Ball alone!
