To win the jackpot, you must match the numbers of the five white balls and the red Powerball.

Besides the grand prize, based on the number of matched balls, there are eight other ways to win a Powerball prize on non-jackpot levels of the game.

Non-jackpot prizes start at $4 and go up to $1 million. For $1 more, you can opt for “Powerplay” – which multiplies non-winning jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times.

10X Powerplay is only available when the jackpot is $150 million or less, Powerball notes. The game’s second-tier “Match 5” prize is capped at $2 million for Powerplay.

An additional add-on feature called “Double Play”, which gives players another chance to match their numbers after each Powerball draw, is available in some jurisdictions for $1 per play.
