If you have a favorite set of numbers, complete a POWERBALL play slip and give it to your Lotto retailer.
Use a pen or pencil in any color other than red.
Select five numbers from 1 through 59 on the top panel of the play slip. Select one number from 1 through 35 (the Powerball) on the bottom panel.
Mark QUICK PICK if you want the computer to randomly pick some or all of the numbers for you. (SAVE TIME: If you want only QUICK PICK numbers, simply tell the clerk. You won't have to complete a play slip!)
You can purchase one, two, three, four, or five plays on a play slip. Each play is $3 when you add the Power Play option. If you don't want to increase your non-jackpot prize, each play will cost $2.
You can play the same set of numbers for up to 24 consecutive draws. If you want more than one draw, mark the number of draws you want in the DRAWS section of the play slip.
If you want to play POWER PLAY with POWERBALL for an additional $1 per play, you must select it on the POWER PLAY section of your play slip or tell the clerk before you buy your POWERBALL ticket. If you're purchasing more than one POWERBALL play and select the POWER PLAY option, that option will apply to all of your plays.
Reading your ticket
Look for the dollar amount you're playing on the ticket across from the word Total.
Your numbers appear above your ticket sales amount (the five white numbers printed in a row, followed by the specially) labeled Powerball number separated from the other numbers with a [-].
Next to Power Play Option, your ticket will either read YES or NO, depending on whether or not you added Power Play to your ticket.
The top of your ticket will show the start date and end date for which your ticket is eligible, and will say Ticket Valid for [X] drawings.

A cash option provides a lump-sum cash payment of approximately one-half the advertised jackpot amount.
The set prize amounts of $2,000,000 through $4 published here are based on the expected number of winners sharing the prize pool. In some cases these prizes may be paid on a pari-mutuel basis and will be lower than the published prize levels. Refer to the official game rules for an explanation of the pari-mutuel prize payment.
