The Powerball lottery starts with a jackpot of $20 million, just like the Mega Millions, and it increases every time a draw is made without a winner. 


How to play the Powerball lottery

Entrants must choose six numbers, including one Powerball, and must match all six to the numbers drawn that week.

Five of the number chosen must be between 1 and 69, and the sixth ‘Powerball’ number is between 1 and 26. 

The Powerball selection can be same as one of the first five numbers because the Powerball number is drawn from a separate pool.

You can pick up a Powerball ticket at any lottery retailer; you can locate your nearest sales point on the Lottery Places app. Each play typically costs $2, with an additional service fee for some online retailers.

Players can also choose to activate the Power Play feature for an extra $1 per ticket. Once added, a multiplier worth up to 10x is added to the jackpot, when the jackpot it $150 million or less. 

Despite all the headlines generated by the massive Mega Millions drawing in recent weeks, the record for largest ever jackpot win in the US actually goes to Powerball. 


Powerball remains the largest jackpot ever won

On Nov. 7, 2022 a jackpot worth $2 billion was won by a lucky ticket-holder in California.

The most recent Mega Millions jackpot, reportedly landed by a lucky winner in Illinois in July, was worth an estimated $1.28 billion.

 It was only the fourth billion-dollar lottery jackpot in US history, and the second-largest top prize in the Mega Millions’ 20-year history.
