ways to win
The Powerball game offers nine ways to win money based on how many of the five white numbered balls along with the red Powerball match ticket numbers. Jackpots start at $20 million, with other top prizes of $1 million and $50,000.
To win the jackpot, players must match all five numbers and the Powerball. For the $1 million prize, tickets must match all five numbers minus the Powerball. A ticket with four matching numbers and the Powerball gets a payout of $50,000.
Four numbers or three numbers and Powerball pays $100. Winners receive $7 for matching two Powerball numbers or three correct numbers and no Powerball. If a ticket matches the Powerball but no other numbers or just one other number, the payout is $4.
The payout can also be increased by purchasing a Power Play.
