In 2001, an optional multiplier known as Power Play was introduced. Players have nine ways to win a Powerball prize. Power Play gives players who are ready to pay an extra $1 per game, the option of multiplying their non-jackpot winnings by up to five times.
Players must select five numbers between 1-69 and a Powerball number between 1-26. A player who matches all the five numbers and the Powerball number is declared the jackpot winner. In addition to the jackpot, there are eight prize tiers with set prize amounts for players matching two or more numbers. Players can boost their non-jackpot winnings by adding Power Play to their games.
