Did anyone hit the Powerball last night?
To be determined.
Before your next Powerball drawing, it’s important to know the following information.
What are the odds of winning Powerball?
Some lottery players are understandably attracted by the massive $1.04 billion jackpot, but it’s important to remember that the chances of winning Powerball’s top prize are extremely slim.
- The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are approximately 1 in 292.2 million.
- The overall odds of winning the Powerball prize (all levels) are approximately 1 in 24.9.
To participate in the Powerball game, players can purchase a ticket for $2 per game. The game requires players to select 5 numbers from 1 to 69 as the white ball and one number from 1 to 26 as the red ball. Alternatively, players can choose to receive random numbers.
To win the jackpot, numbers must match on all five white balls and the red Powerball.
In addition to the jackpot, Powerball offers eight other ways to win based on the number of matching balls in non-jackpot levels.
Non-jackpot prizes on offer range from $4 to $1 million. For an extra $1, you can choose to participate in a “Powerplay” that increases your non-jackpot winnings by 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times.
According to Powerball, the 10X Powerplay option is available exclusively for jackpots worth $150 million or less. Additionally, the game’s second-level “Match 5” prize pool is capped at $2 million if the Powerplay feature is used.
An additional feature called Double Bet gives players another chance to match numbers after each Powerball drawing and is available in some jurisdictions for $1 per bet.
