HOW TO PLAY POWERBALL

Pick Your Number of Plays

Each playslip has five Play Areas (A–E) with boxes numbered 1–69 in the upper white Play Area and 1–26 in the lower shaded Play Area. You can play a single set of numbers (A) or up to five sets (A–E), with each play costing $2.00.

Pick Your Numbers

Choose any five numbers 1–69 and one POWERBALL number 1–26 in each Play Area, or mark the Quick Pick (QP) box on your playslip to let the computer choose for you.

Play Multiple Drawings

Mark the appropriate Multi-Draw box to play your chosen numbers for up to 10 consecutive drawings (including the current drawing).

Add Power Play

For an additional $1.00 per play, add Power Play to your playslip. See below for details on how you could multiply your winnings by adding this feature.

Buy Your Ticket

Check your playslip carefully to make sure you have correctly marked each selection before presenting it to a Tennessee Lottery retailer. POWERBALL tickets cannot be canceled!

Check Your Winnings

There are many ways to find out if your ticket is a winner. The quickest and easiest way is to scan your ticket or check the winning numbers using the TN Lottery App.

* All set prizes and Power Play prizes, including the Match 5 of 5 prize, may be reduced if claims exceed available prize fund.
** Jackpot divided equally among all winning Plays. Annuity jackpots will be paid over a 30-year period and will be increased each year by a percentage as noted in the POWERBALL rules.

How Power Play Works

Before POWERBALL numbers are drawn, a Power Play number (2, 3, 4, 5 or 10) is randomly selected. The 10 multiplier is only available for selection when the advertised annuity jackpot is $150 million or less. If you win any non-jackpot prize (except 5 of 5), your regular prize amount will be multiplied by the Power Play number drawn. If you've added Power Play to your ticket and match all five white balls, you win $2 million instantly!

Adding Power Play to your ticket is an additional $1.00 per play, totaling $3.00 per play. Example: If you fill in all five Play Areas (A–E) on the playslip, select Power Play and choose three under Multi-Draw, your cost would be 5 (Play Areas) x $3.00 (plays with Power Play) x 3 (number of draws) = $45.00.
