How to Play

With every Powerball drawing, a Power Play number from 2-5 will be drawn. If you have purchased Power Play with your Powerball purchase and you win with your Powerball numbers, your prize amount (excluding the jackpot) will be multiplied by the Power Play number drawn.

Previously, Power Play number 5 had to be drawn for a $200,000 Powerball prize to increase to $1 million.**  Now, a 5 of 5 $200,000 Powerball prize increases to $1 million**, if you've purchased the Power Play option for an additional $1 per play.

 

The POWER PLAY option will increase POWERBALL prizes as noted below: MATCHPRIZES** FOR POWER PLAY NUMBER DRAWN   2 3 4 5 5 + 1* N/A N/A N/A N/A 5 + 0 $1,000,000 $1,000,000 $1,000,000 $1,000,000 4 + 1 $20,000 $30,000 $40,000 $50,000 4 + 0 $200 $300 $400 $500 3 + 1 $200 $300 $400 $500 3 + 0 $14 $21 $28 $35 2 + 1 $14 $21 $28 $35 1 + 1 $8 $12 $16 $20 0 + 1 $6 $9 $12 $15 *The jackpot amount is excluded from POWER PLAY.

Grand Prize

The Grand Prize will be paid, at the election of the player, no later than 60 days after the player becomes entitled to the prize, with either a per winner annuity or cash payment. Shares of the Grand Prize shall be determined by dividing the cash available in the Grand Prize pool equally among all Grand Prize winning tickets. If the cash value is elected, the player will receive a single cash payment equal to the player’s share of the Grand Prize pool. The Grand Prize pool is equal to the estimated present cash value of the final annuitized amount of the Grand Prize. This amount will be less than the advertised Grand Prize. All annuitized prizes shall be paid annually in thirty (30) graduated payments (increasing each year), with the initial payment being made in cash followed by twenty nine (29) annual payments funded by the annuity.

Match 5 Bonus Prize When the jackpot reaches a record level and there is a jackpot winner, a Match 5 Bonus prize may apply and be paid to the Match 5 winners. This is in addition to the Match 5 and Power Play regular winnings. For details, see Powerball game rules.   Claiming your Kentucky Powerball/Power Play Prize
