There are nine different ways to win Powerball prizes in every draw, based on how many numbers you match. You can win $4 just for matching the Powerball, while the jackpot is won by matching all five main numbers plus the Powerball. The top prize starts at $20 million (*Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the starting jackpot may be lower than this) and increases every time it is not won.
If there are multiple winners of the jackpot, it will be shared equally between them. The eight prizes below the jackpot are fixed amounts, so for these prizes there is a guaranteed payout regardless of how many winning players there are. Go to the Powerball Numbers page to see the latest prize payouts.
The Powerball payout chart below shows how many numbers you need to match to win the different prizes and the odds of winning each. You can also see statistics about past winners in each division.

For a small additional fee, you can opt to use the Power Play option which will increase the prize payout for any non-jackpot win by a multiple of 2, 3, 4 or 5 (or possibly 10 when the estimated jackpot is less than $150 million) depending on which Power Play number is drawn. Match 5 winnings are always doubled to $2 million with the Power Play option, no matter which Power Play number is drawn. This option is available in all participating states and jurisdictions except California, where prizes must be pari-mutuel according to state law. In Idaho, Power Play is automatically included on every ticket

Double Play Payout Prizes
Just like the main Powerball game, there are nine different ways to win prizes in Double Play based on how many numbers you match. In fact, the Double Play payouts are worth more than the equivalent Powerball payouts for six of the nine prize levels. For example, if you match the Powerball on its own without any of the main numbers, you win $7 in Double Play compared to $4 in the main draw.
The Double Play jackpot is $10 million and you win by matching all five main numbers and the Powerball. This stays as a fixed amount in every drawing, even if nobody wins. If there are multiple winners, the jackpot is split between them.
The following table shows the prizes available in Double Play, along with the corresponding prizes for the main drawing. The odds of winning are the same for both draws.
