How to Play Powerball

Playing is easy. To learn how, follow the 5 simple steps.

STEP 1

Using a Lottery playslip, which you can find at any Lottery retailer, pick 5 numbers between 1 and 69 and 1 Power Number between 1 and 26. You can also select Quick Pick®, or just ask the cashier for a Powerball Quick Pick, and the random number generator will choose the numbers for you.

To play the same numbers for consecutive draws, just mark Advance Play®.

Advance Play allows you to play multiple draws with one purchase.

You can play up to 10 consecutive draws on one playslip by marking the Advance Play box.

STEP 2

Pay $2 per play for each Powerball ticket. Your ticket is your receipt. Once it prints, the play cannot be cancelled or refunded.

STEP 3

Know the draw times. Powerball draws take place Wednesdays and Saturdays at 7:59 p.m. Draw entry closes at 7 p.m. on the day of the draw.

STEP 4

Remember that Powerball has 9 winning ball combinations. The more numbers on your ticket that match the numbers drawn, the more you win.

STEP 5

Use any of these ways to see if you’re a Powerball winner:

  • Look on the Lottery website for winning numbers and prize amounts.
  • Download the Lottery mobile app to see winning numbers.
  • Scan your ticket using the Check-A-Ticket feature on the mobile app.
  • Use the Check-A-Ticket machine at a local Lottery retail location.
