New PowerBall Changes Effective January 15, 2012!

Beginning January 15, 2012, Powerball has been redesigned to bring more value to its players. The jackpots will be bigger and players have a better chance at winning them. Jackpots will start at $40 million, increasing at least $10 million between each drawing. Players who match the five white balls will win $1 million or, if they choose to Power Play, $2 million. The odds of winning the jackpot improve to 1 in 175 million and the odds of winning a prize overall improve to 1 in 31.8. The game, played in 42 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands, has nine ways to win.

How to Play

Powerball is still easy to play! There are two play options for Powerball: a $2 Powerball ticket or a $3 Powerball ticket with Power Play. The extra dollar played for the Power Play feature means winning larger prize amounts, including a new $2 million prize for matching all 5 white balls! See the chart below for all of the exciting new cash prizes guaranteed by adding the Power Play feature to your Powerball ticket.

Selecting Your Numbers

Once you have chosen Powerball or Powerball with Power Play, picking your numbers is easy too! You can complete a playslip to select your favorite numbers or ask the retailer for a “Quick Pick” ticket to have the computer select any or all of your numbers. You can play a total of five (5) sets of numbers on one playslip. (See the playslip instructions below.)

You can also choose to play in future drawings by using the same playslip for up to 26 consecutive drawings. To play consecutive drawings, you need to either select one of the “Multi-Draw” boxes on the playslip or ask the retailer for multiple draws at the time of purchase. If you win on any of the drawings during a Multi-Draw play, you can cash in your winnings at a retailer location or NCEL office depending on the prize won and an EXCHANGE TICKET will be printed for the remaining drawings that are still active on the ticket. Be sure to check your numbers and verify your ticket cost prior to purchase. A Powerball ticket CANNOT be cancelled by the retailer after it is generated. The ticket, and not the playslip, is your proof of purchase.

All sales for Powerball stop at the cut-off time of 9:59 p.m. on the drawing days and resume following each drawing. Drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday night at approximately 10:59 p.m.

* The jackpot prize is estimated and will be divided equally among all winning tickets for that prize level. The jackpot can be paid out either as a lump sum payment or an annuity payout over 29 years (or 30 payments). If the winner chooses the annuity, the annual payment will be increased each year by the percentage set out in the Powerball game rules. Each ticket costs $2. The jackpot prize may become pari-mutuel in limited circumstances based on sales.

** All set prizes and Power Play prizes, including the Match 5+0 prize, may be reduced if claims exceed available prize fund. In such circumstances, these prizes may become pari-mutuel as defined in the game rules. Pari-mutuel means that prize amounts are shared equally among all winners of the available prize pool for that prize level.
