How Power Play Works

Power Play ๐ŸŽฐis an optional feature that allows non-jackpot winnings to be multiplied between 2๏ธโƒฃ and 1๏ธโƒฃ0๏ธโƒฃ times. For $1 extra per line, any wins could be boosted by a randomly selected multiplier. However, Power Play does not apply to the massive jackpot ๐Ÿ’ฐ or always multiply the second tier 'match 5' prize beyond doubling it.

The Power Play Numbers

After the standard numbers are drawn, a separate 'Power Play' number is also picked to determine the multiplier. The odds of each number being selected are: 2x (24 in 43), 3x (13 in 43), 4x (3 in 43), 5x (2 in 43), and 10x (1 in 43) โ€” but only if the jackpot is under $150 million.

Is the 1๏ธโƒฃ0๏ธโƒฃx Multiplier Worth It?

While tempting, the 1๏ธโƒฃ0๏ธโƒฃx multiplier is rarely drawn. In fact, over half the time last year it wasn't even eligible! ๐Ÿ™… Power Play also does not boost wins above doubling the 'match 5' prize. With such long odds, it may not be as rewarding as it initially seems.

A Better Strategy ๐ŸŽฏ

Rather than relying on small wins being multiplied, it's wiser to increase your basic chances of winning. The extra dollar spent per line on Power Play is better used to purchase additional standard tickets. This directly improves your odds versus leaving success to potentially boosted fate.

Focus on the Prize, Not Multipliers

In the end, no feature replaces a strategy of maximizing entries for the jackpot. Stick to standard Powerball and let the rollercoaster take you on an unpredictable ride, without wasting money on uncertain Power Play multipliers. Success is found in greater participation, not strengthened serendipity.


Some Frequently Asked Questions.

To enable the Power Play multiplier feature, simply check the Power Play box on your playslip before purchasing tickets. This will automatically apply the multiplier to all lines/plays on that ticket.

Power Play is a $1 per line upgrade. So for each combination you select to play, you will pay $1 extra to enable the multiplier on potential wins from that line. For example, a 5-line ticket at $2 per line jumps to $15 total with Power Play.

By checking the Power Play box, you are activating the chance for any non-jackpot winnings to be multiplied. If you win a prize that is eligible, the dollar amount will be increased by the drawn Power Play number (usually 2-5x, rarely 10x).
