Powerball Prizes and Odds

Powerball is a combined large jackpot game and a cash game, draw days are every Wednesday and Saturday night at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Time.

They draw five white b@lls out of a drum with 59 b@lls and one red ball out of a drum with 35 red b@lls. Draw sales cut off at least 59 minutes before the draw.

Players win by matching one of the 9 Ways to Win. The jackpot (won by matching all five white b@lls in any order and the red Powerball) is either an annuitized prize paid out over 29 years (30 payments) or a lump sum payment.

Each ticket costs $2. If the winner chooses the annuity, the annual payment will be increased each year by the percentage set out in the Powerball game rules.
