What is Power Play?

Power Play is an optional multiplier, which can boost the seven bottom prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5 or even 10 times! The officials select the value of the multiplier depending on the draw and jackpot size; with 2 being more likely to appear than 10. Please note that the jackpot is never increased by Power Play. Only secondary prizes get multiplied. The 10x multiplier only comes into play when the jackpot is $150 million or less to encourage people to play when the jackpot levels drop.

Guessing the five main numbers and the Power Play would make you a millionaire even by doubling Powerball’s second prize up to $2,000,000. Don’t forget to Power Play and take your game further!
