Each play (line) on a ticket is a separate entry into the next draw. Powerball is available with up to five (5) plays on each ticket, making it easy to maximize your chances of success.
Adding the Power Play option to your ticket will let you increase the size of non-jackpot prizes by 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X, or even 10X. This feature also offers the chance to win $2 by matching just two numbers. When included, the prizes will be multiplied by the value of the Power Play ball drawn after the winning numbers. Power Play will apply to all plays on a ticket and will increase the cost of each play by $1 when added.
Powerball can be enjoyed with a wager of just $2. A new wager is added for each additional play included on the ticket. The Power Play option applies to the whole ticket and increases the wager by $1 per play.
Drawings are held on Mondays, Wednesdays & Saturdays at approximately 10:59pm EST. Lotto.com has a cutoff time of 9:30pm to make sure your ticket is processed in time. If you purchase a ticket after the cutoff time, your ticket will be entered into the following draw.
The Powerball jackpot for matching all six (6) numbers including the Powerball starts at $20 Million. Each time a draw is held without a jackpot winner, the prize rolls into the next draw and continues to grow. The jackpot will continue to increase until a winner is found, with prizes often increasing to hundreds of millions of dollars. That’s a lot of zeroes!
