Power Play Information

How to Increase Winnings with Power Play:

  • For an extra $1 per play per drawing (total cost will be $3) Power Play will increase non-jackpot winnings.
  • For every Powerball drawing a Power Play multiplier is drawn that is used to multiply certain prizes.
    • When the advertised annuity jackpot is less than or equal to the Major Jackpot Level, the multiplier will be either 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X or 10X.
    • When the advertised annuity jackpot is greater than the Major Jackpot Level, the multiplier will be either 2X, 3X, 4X or 5X.
    • The Major Jackpot Level is defined as "the level above which Powerball drawings will no longer include a Power Play of 10X." The Estimated Jackpot is currently $157,000,000. The Major Jackpot Level is currently $150,000,000. Therefore, a 10X will not be included in the next drawing.
  • If your ticket wins a prize from $4 to $50,000 and you added Power Play, your prize will be multiplied by that drawing’s Power Play multiplier.

Examples:

  • If you added the Power Play and your prize is $100, and the Power Play multiplier drawn was 3X, you win $300 ($100 x 3).
  • If you added Power Play and your prize is $50,000 and the Power Play multiplier drawn is 5X, you win $250,000 ($50,000 x 5) — just by adding Power Play.

  • The $1,000,000 prize becomes $2,000,000 with Power Play.
  • Power Play does not increase JACKPOT prizes.
  • To select Power Play, mark the Power Play circle on the playslip or ask to add Power Play when purchasing a ticket.
