To play, pick up a POWERBALL playslip at an authorized Florida Lottery retailer. Each playslip contains five panels (A-E). In each panel played:
Drawings are held Wednesday and Saturday nights at 10:59 p.m., Eastern Time. Tickets may be purchased until 10:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on the night of the drawing. Tickets purchased after that time will be for the next drawing.
If you claim a prize on a winning Advance Play ticket before all of the draws on the ticket have occurred, you will be issued a continuation ticket for the remaining draws with the same play numbers as the original ticket.
Please remember: All prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the applicable drawing date. All POWERBALL prizes must be claimed in the state where the ticket was purchased.
Power Play is a special feature that allows players to win two to four times their non-jackpot prizes, for just $1 more per play! A player must choose the Power Play option on his/her POWERBALL playslip or tell the retailer that he/she wishes to purchase a Power Play ticket. With Power Play, all non-jackpot prizes are set payouts that are 2 to 4 times higher than the base game. The match 5 prize will pay $2 million.
