How Powerball Is Played
Powerball draw occurs every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Five number balls are drawn from a drum with 69 white balls and one ball will be drawn from a drum with 26 red balls.
The jackpot can be claimed either as a cash lump sum or an annuitized prize paid out over 29 years. The second prize will be won by matching five white balls in any order and this can be claimed by cash only. There are other smaller prizes as well for the lottery game. The probability of getting a prize while playing Powerball is 1 in 25.
Tickets are worth $2 each. Ticket sales stop 59 minutes, or earlier (depending on the state) from the scheduled draw.
For an additional $1 on top of the $2 ticket, you can increase the original amount of the prizes, excluding the jackpot. For the Match 5+0, a winner who opts for Power Play will get $2 million instead of $1 million. For smaller prizes, Powerball representatives will draw a multiplier – 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x.
A Powerball jackpot winner can choose between annuity or one-time pay option. For annuity, the winner will receive an immediate payment, which is then followed by annual payments for the next 29 years. Each payment is 5 percent bigger than the next; made possible through Powerball investments on the remaining winnings.
