In addition to picking all six numbers, there are eight other ways to win prizes from $1 to $1,000,000.

If there is no top prize winner, the jackpot prize rolls over to the next draw, making the prize for those winning numbers bigger ... and Bigger ... and BIGGER!

The second prize (won by matching five white balls in any order) is $1,000,000 paid in cash. You also win any time you match the red Power ball.

Normally 50 percent of the amount wagered on Powerball lottery games is used for prizes.


How to play USA Powerball

In order to win the PowerBall jackpot, you need to match 5 numbers with those drawn from 59 plus 1 PowerBall drawn from a second set of 35 balls. The PowerBall number may have the same numerical value as one of those previously drawn from the first set of balls.

History

Lotto America was launched in 1988 and renamed to Powerball in April 1992 when the game and the prizes were also changed. The number of required balls was increased, but this was made up for by a more noticable change, that of being able to win a prize by matching just the PowerBall alone!

In March, 2001, an optional multiplier wheel (called 'PowerPlay') was added. The wheel was retired in 2009 and PowerPlay is now drawn by computer.

Powerball was the first lotto game to use two drums. Using two drums offers more flexibility in game design, allowing for the possibility of both high jackpot odds and low odds for other prize levels. The two-drum idea has since been used by the Mega Millions (formerly The Big Game) in the U.S., Australia's Powerball, Thunderball in the United Kingdom, and EuroMillions.
