How the Powerball draw is played

The player must select five numbers from a group of 1 to 69 for the white ballsthen choose a number from 1 to 26 for the red Powerball.

It is possible for each player to choose their numbers or let the lottery terminal choose numbers at random.

Also, for an additional $1 dollar it is possible to access the Power Play, which can multiply minor prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times. The multiplier number is randomly selected just before each draw.

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

If in a draw no one hits the jackpot, the amount of money accumulates on each draw date until it is won. Plus, the jackpot isn’t the only prize, as players also win money by matching one of 9 different ways to win.

Powerball holds the world record for the largest jackpot set in 2016of $1,586.4 million and which was a prize shared by three winners residing in California, Florida and Tennessee.
