The Power Play
The Power Play allows players the chance of winning higher cash prizes by multiplying their lower-tier winnings by 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X or 10X (only available on a jackpot of less than $150 million). The jackpot is excluded from the Power Play. This means that the second-tier prize for five matching white balls will get doubled to $2 million at the very least. Power Play balls come from a pool of 24 balls of 2X, 13 balls of 3X, 3 balls of 4X and 2 balls of 5X, with 1 ball of 10X if the jackpot is under $150 million, 42 (or 43) balls in total.
The initial jackpot always begins at $40 million, with at least a $10 million increase on any subsequent rollovers. This creates some fabulous jackpot amounts! The odds of winning any sort of prize are very favourable at 1 in 24.9.
The jackpot prize is won by matching all five white balls as well as the Powerball on your ticket to those of the prize draw. If more than one ticket has the winning number then the prize is shared equally. There are nine cash prize tiers in total, starting at $4, and increasing to $1 million. Lower-tier prizes are fixed amounts.
Winning the jackpot enables you to claim your winnings as a one-off cash payout, or as 30 equal yearly payments. The cash payment would be slightly smaller than the jackpot amount, while the annual payments will increase by 5% to keep in line with inflation. It is entirely the player’s choice.
