How Power Play for Powerball Works

You could power up your lottery winnings by up to 10x.

How would you like to multiply your lottery winnings by 10? Meet Power Play.

The Power Play is a $1 optional feature you can add to your Powerball play that can boost your non-jackpot winnings by 2, 3, 4, 5 or even 10 times, depending on what Power Play number is drawn.

How does Power Play work?

The Power Play is a special number that is randomly drawn before each Powerball drawing.  This "multiplier" number is chosen by a random number generator with weighted values for reach multiplier option. 

There are twenty-four 2X values; thirteen 3X values; three 4X values; and two 5X values. And when jackpots are below $150 Million, one 10X value is added to the mix!

Power Play numbers: How much can you win?

The payout chart below shows how much each Power Play number drawn would boost your prize winnings. Important to know:

  • The multiplier does not apply to a jackpot prize (Sorry! We don't make the rules.)
  • The Match 5 numbers prize is always $2 million no matter which multiplier is drawn. Without Power Play, it's $1 million.
  • The 10X multiplier is only in play when the advertised jackpot is $150 million or less.
