Draw Schedule
Drawings are conducted Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, about 11pm ET / 10pm CT. Watch the drawing.


Power Play
For an additional $1 per play, add Power Play to multiply your winnings. With every drawing, a Power Play number will be drawn. The Power Play number drawn is between 2-5, or when jackpots are $150 million or less, the 10X Power Play multiplier is also available to be drawn. If you have purchased Power Play and you win with your Powerball numbers, your prize amount (excluding the jackpot* and the Match 5 prize**) will be multiplied by the Power Play number drawn. Win $2 million** with Match 5 of 5 Power Play prize!
Total ticket cost is the total amount wagered multiplied by the number of drawings selected.

*Jackpot Prize
The Jackpot Prize will be paid, at the election of the player made no later than 60 days after the player becomes entitled to the prize, with either a per winner annuity or cash payment.  The amount of the annuity and the amount of the cash payment will be determined according to the Game Rules.  

The Jackpot Prize will be divided equally among all winning Jackpot Prize winning plays. All annuity prizes will be paid in thirty (30) graduated annual installments (increasing each year), with the initial payment being made in cash followed by twenty-nine (29) annual installments funded by the annuity.  If the cash value option is elected, the player will receive a single present value cash payment which will be less than the annuity amount. 

In some cases, the annuity option may not be available - see Game Rules for complete details.
