# what was the power play for powerball

Power Play

Power Play is an option that players can add to their Powerball ticket to multiply the value of non-jackpot prizes. During each Powerball draw on Wednesday and Saturday nights, a separate Power Play number is drawn ahead of the main numbers.

Everyone who opted-in to Power Play and who wins a non-jackpot prize has it multiplied by that figure. The only exception is the Match 5 prize of \$1 million, which becomes \$2 million for Power Play ticket holders, no matter which number is drawn.

You add Power Play when you buy a Powerball ticket by checking the box on your playslip and paying an additional \$1 per line. You cannot play it separately and you cannot opt in later. You do not need to pick an extra number to participate in Power Play; the number drawn applies to all players who took up the option.

### Power Play Multipliers

The Power Play can provide 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x the value of non-jackpot prizes, although the 10x multiplier is only available when the jackpot is worth less than \$150 million.

Here are the Power Play multipliers, the odds of each being drawn, and the effect they have on a Match 4+1 prize of \$50,000.
