Tuesday, 13 November 2007
The Power Play feature is a multiplier that allows you the chance to multiply your non-jackpot winnings up to 5 times. The PowerPlay feature is optional. Powerball tickets normally cost $1 each; activating PowerPlay raises the price to $2 for any player selection where the PowerPlay is activated. Before each Powerball drawing the PowerPlay number is chosen and a wheel is spun by the emcee. The ball lands in one of 16 slots, numbered 2, 3, 4 or 5 four times each (during a yearly promotion, one of the 5 spaces is replaced by 10). If a player wins a non-jackpot Powerball prize and PowerPlay was activated for that selection, the multiplier picked applies to that game. For example, matching ONLY the red "Powerball" usually wins $3; but, if that selection had PowerPlay activated, and the multiplier is 5, the prize is $15.

The maximum possible PowerPlay prize is $1 million cash. This is possible if a player matches all five regular balls ($200,000) and the PowerPlay is 5. During a yearly promotion, you have the option of selecting the 10x space on the wheel. If the PowerPlay of 10x is selected, a non-jackpot win of $2 million cash is possible.
