The folks at USAMega.com crunched the numbers for each of the states that participate in Powerball, including New York. After factoring in a 8.82 percent state tax and a 25 percent federal tax, the site’s analysts say if a New York resident happens to pick all of Saturday night’s numbers, he or she would be $178.5 million richer if a lump sum payout were selected. The annuity payout over 30 years would net a New Yorker an average of $9.2 million a year. The total payout over 30 years is estimated at $274.6 million.
Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are not great: just 1 in 292,201,338.
So, what if you only match a few numbers, what do you win? Here’s the deal:
- Match 5 numbers and the Powerball number = Jackpot
- Match 5 numbers, not including the Powerball number = $1 million
- Match 4 numbers and the Powerball number = $50,000
- Match 4 numbers, not including the Powerball number = $100
- Match 3 numbers and the Powerball number = $100
- Match 3 numbers, not including the Powerball number = $7
- Match 2 numbers and the Powerball number = $7
