How to play Powerball

The cost to play Powerball is $2 per entry.

To play, you need to select five numbers from one to 69 for the white balls, and one number from one to 26 for the red Powerball.

You can either pick your own numbers using a play slip or let the lottery terminal generate random numbers for you.

To win, you need to match one of the nine Ways to Win:

There is also a Power Play option available for an additional $1 per play, which can multiply non-jackpot prizes two, three, four, five, or ten times when the jackpot is $150 million or less.

All prizes, except for the grand prize, are fixed cash amounts. In California, the prize amounts are determined by the number of winners and ticket sales, using a pari-mutuel system.
