When buying Powerball in-store, players can choose to “Double Play,” which allows them to enter their numbers in a second drawing that happens right after the main drawing and increase their chances of winning by up to $10,000,000. For an extra $1 each play, players can add the Double Play feature to their Powerball ticket. The drawing for the Powerball Double Play happens from 11:30 to 11:40 p.m.

How likely is it to win the Powerball?

It makes sense that the enormous $685 million jackpot will draw some lottery players, but it’s important to remember that the odds of winning Powerball’s top reward are incredibly low.

• The overall odds of winning a Powerball reward (across all levels) are approximately one in 24.9.
• The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are approximately one in 292.2 million.

Players can buy a ticket for $2 per play to enter the Powerball game. In order to play the game, participants must select one number from one to 26 for the red Powerball and five numbers from one to 69 for the white balls. Players also have the option to choose random numbers. Matching the numbers for all five white balls and the red Powerball is required to win the jackpot.

Depending on the quantity of matched balls in the non-jackpot tiers, Powerball gives eight more opportunities to win in addition to the big prize. The available non-jackpot prizes are between $4 and $1 million. Participating in “Powerplay” allows you to increase non-jackpot earnings by 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 times for an extra $1.

The 10X Powerplay option is only available for jackpots of $150 million or less, according to Powerball. Furthermore, if the Powerplay function is used, the game’s “Match 5” award for the second tier is restricted to a maximum of $2 million. Some countries provide an additional $1 per play add-on option called “Double Play,” which offers players another chance to match their numbers following each Powerball drawing.
