How to Play Powerball

 

To see where you can play Powerball, Click Here

 

The object of Powerball is pick a total of six (6) numbers and hope that the numbers drawn match the ones you picked.

 

The easiest and quickest way to play is to choose a "quick pick," which is set of numbers randomly selected by the lottery machine.

 

If you choose to specify the numbers yourself, you select five distinct numbers between 1 and 59, and one "Powerball" number between 1 and 39.  The Powerball can be the same as one of the first five numbers, because it is drawn from a separate number pool from the first five numbers.

 

When you play Powerball, you must select either Cash Option or the Jackpot Annuity.  With Cash Option you choose to receive your portion of the Present Cash value of the advertised jackpot in one lump sum.  The Jackpot Annuity awards you your portion of the full amount of the estimated jackpot, payable in 30 annual installments (over 29 years).  Note: in some states you do not specify the cash option until you redeem your winning ticket.

 

Each play is $1.00 (or $1.00 + service fee online).

 

Drawings are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Time (9:59 Central; 8:59 p.m. Mountain; 7:59 p.m. Pacific).

 

Tickets may be purchased up to approximately 10:45 PM Eastern Time the night of the drawing.  (5:00 PM Eastern Time if you play Powerball online.)  Check with a lottery retailer in your state for the precise ticket cutoff time.
