The approximate overall odds of winning a "classic" Powerball prize are 1 in 35.1.
The Power Play option multiplies your non-jackpot prize by up to 5 times the prize amount.
* The set prize amounts listed above are based on the expected number of winners sharing in the prize pool. In some cases, these prizes may be paid on a pari-mutuel basis and will be lower than these listed prize levels. Refer to the official game procedures for a detailed explanation of the optional pari-mutuel payment. The jackpot prize will be divided equally among all players who correctly match all 5 white balls plus the red powerball. Jackpot winners have 60 days after claiming that prize to choose how to be paid -- in 30 annual payments or in one lump sum payment (approx. 1/2 the annuitized amount).
