As per the lottery officials, the Jackpot reached the top five Powerball jackpots in the history of the US lottery. The next drawing for Powerball is scheduled for Saturday, October 2, 2021.
The Powerball fever is sweeping all across the US. So all you potential winners out there, grab your playslips today, as the likelihood of bagging a jackpot is 1 in 292,201,338.00. So, if you are still thinking about why Powerball is the hot favorite among players, and how you can have the chance to bag a jackpot, have a look below!
So playing Powerball is super easy and all fun. Each Powerball ticket costs $2. For each ticket, you have to select five distinct numbers from a field of 69 white balls and one number from 26 red ‘Powerballs’. The number of the ‘Powerball’ ball can be the same as one of the first five numbers because it is drawn from a separate number pool from the first five numbers. The winning numbers are selected using two distinct drawing machines: one containing the white balls and the other containing the red Powerballs. The machine with 69 white balls draws 5 whites whereas the other machine draws 1 red Powerball drawing a total of 6 balls. To win the jackpot, you need to match all the six drawn lottery numbers. Even if you don’t get lucky to hit the jackpot, if you match at least 3 white balls and 1 red ball, you win the non-jackpot prizes.
Powerball also offers two great Extra options or add-on features - PowerPlay and Double Play, to help you have a greater share of winnings. Opting the Power Play costs you an additional $3 and gives you the chance of multiplying the non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5, or even 10 times! For Double Play, you have to spend $1 extra and have another chance to match the Powerball numbers in a separate drawing. The Double Play draw is held immediately after the regular drawing and has a top cash prize of $10 million. Yes, you got all right! With so many options of becoming a millionaire, with a jackpot standing at $620 million, on just one ticket, who would want to miss this lifetime opportunity.
Not ending it here, Powerball also offers the Multi-Draw option that lets you play the same set of numbers in multiple drawings. You simply select the number of consecutive drawings you want to play in the Multi-Draw or Advance Play section of your play slip.
The drawings for Powerball are held thrice every week, on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, every night at 10:59 p.m. ET.
