What would i win if i hit just the powerball number

In Powerball drawings, you win $4 for getting only the Powerball right. For 1 number plus the Powerball, you win $4 as well.

In Mega Millions drawings, you win $2 for getting only the Mega Ball right. If you have 1 number plus the Mega Ball, you win $3. Other than that, very few lotteries pay for just getting 1 number correct.

Other Powerball non-jackpot payouts are:

$7 for 2 numbers plus the Powerball
$7 for 3 numbers without the Powerball
$100 for 3 numbers plus the Powerball
$100 for 4 numbers without the Powerball
$10,000 for 4 numbers plus the Powerball
$1,000,000 for 5 numbers without the Powerball

You win the jackpot for all 5 numbers plus the Powerball. The jackpot amount varies depending on how many people buy tickets.

In latest buzz, no ticket holder had the winning numbers for the record $900 million U.S. Powerball jackpot drawn on Saturday night, which means Wednesday's draw will balloon to an estimated $1.4 billion, the largest ever! Find out more at CNBC.
