Rules or How does it work?

Powerball is the world's first lotto game to apply 2 separate raffle drums to draw the winning numbers. That was aimed to make the game-play more flexible and ensured high jackpot winning odds and low odds for the secondary prizes. This concept was later followed by other draw-type lotteries around the globe such as US Mega Millions, Australian Powerball twin lotto, UK Thunderball and the pan-European EuroMillions lottery.

Powerball's matrix had undergone a number of changes from 5/59 + 1/35 in the beginning to the current 5/69 + 1/26. The main winning Powerball numbers matrix was increased while the bonus number matrix was decreased.

US Powerball has 9 prize divisions. Players have to choose and match 5 main winning numbers from the guess range of 1 to 69 as well as the bonus number out 35 possible to win the Powerball jackpot. The bonus number is accountable for the secondary cash prizes of the 3rd, 5th, 7th, 8th and 9th divisions. Even matching only the Powerball number players will get a cash prize. In case you are lucky to match only the 5 main numbers you will get a guaranteed prize of $1 mln dollars prize or even increase it several millions if using the Power Play feature! Power Play is a special option which may be used for the additional price. It will multiply the winnings in the 7 lower prize categories if the winning combination is matched.
