To prepare for the upcoming changes to the Powerball Power Play feature in January 2014, the Nebraska Lottery is temporarily reducing the amount of drawings that can be purchased on a ticket starting on October 30, 2013. Click here for details.
The Powerball jackpot starts at $40 million and continues to grow by at least $10 million each drawing until it is won.
Annuity or Cash option
You can choose how to collect your Powerball jackpot--30 annual payments (over 29 years) or one cash payment (present value*)--up to 60 days after you become entitled to the prize. The annuity option now gives players annual payments that increase each year--projected at 4 percent.
* if you choose cash, the present cash value is less than the advertised jackpot, which is based on a 30-year annuity.
How to Play
Pick five numbers between 1 and 59 for your five white ball numbers by marking the top section of the Powerball play slip. Then, pick one number between 1 and 35 for your red Powerball number by marking the bottom section of the Powerball play slip, or mark the quick pick box on the play slip.
Each play costs $2 and you can pick up to five different sets of numbers on each playslip. You can purchase the same numbers for up to 24 consecutive drawings when you use the multi-draw box on the play slip.
Tickets can be purchased from 5:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. (Central Time) any day of the week except from 9:00 p.m. to 9:03 p.m. on drawing nights. Review your play slip carefully before giving it to the clerk. Once printed, a ticket cannot be canceled. Check your tickets before leaving the store.
More Power In Power Play
Players who choose to add the $1 Power Play option have the chance to play for enhanced prizes. A multiplier is no longer used and has been replaced with fixed prizes. A "0x" for the Power Play multiplier will be shown in the drawing results on this website to indicate the change.
|Regular Prizes||Power Play Prizes|
