The objective is to match all 5 white balls plus the Powerball. To play Powerball you must first pick up a playslip at an authorized Lottery retailer. Each playslip contains five panels, allowing you to play up to five plays for each panel.
Begin by selecting five numbers from 1 thru 69 or you could simply select a quick pick and let the computer randomly pick all your numbers. If you choose your own numbers then you must select a Powerball number from a field of 1 thru 26. If you match all 5 white balls and the Powerball you win the jackpot! Don’t despair if you do not win the jackpot, as there are more ways to win.
If you match only the 5 white balls you win $1 million dollars!
