When is the Powerball drawing?

Powerball, a multi-state lottery game, is played every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. It is one of the two biggest lottery jackpots in the United States, along with Mega Millions.

Ways to win

The Powerball game offers nine ways to win money based on the number of the five white numbered balls that match the ticket numbers, as well as the red Powerball. The 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 receives a $50,000 payout.

Four numbers, or three numbers and Powerball, wins $100. Winners receive $7 for two correct numbers with the Powerball, or three correct numbers and no Powerball. If a ticket matches the Powerball but no other number, or only one other number, the payout is $4.

Payout can also be enhanced by purchasing a Power Play.
