How to Play

USA Powerball draws take place twice a week in Florida. They are held at 22:59 Eastern Time on Wednesdays and Saturdays - see the FAQs on this page for the draw schedule according to South Africa local time. To take part, you must select five main numbers between 1 and 69 and one Powerball number from 1 to 26. It costs $2 per board to play.

Playing from South Africa

Tickets are only available to buy from retailers in 44 states in the USA, plus the jurisdictions of Washington D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. However, you can also play online from South Africa and other countries by following the steps below:

If it is your first time, you will be guided through how to set up an online account. Your numbers will be safely stored online and you will be notified automatically if you are a winner, with prizes paid straight into your account.

Power Play

When you buy a Powerball ticket, you can also add Power Play for an extra $1 per line. If you win any prize except the jackpot, it will be multiplied by 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x its original amount if you have selected the Power Play option. The multiplier is determined by a number that is randomly selected in the Power Play draw that takes place alongside the main game.

The 10x Power Play is not available once the jackpot exceeds $150 million. The second prize of $1 million is always doubled to $2 million regardless of which Power Play multiplier is in play.

The table below shows the odds of each Power Play multiplier being selected. The odds differ slightly depending on whether the 10x multiplier is available.

USA Powerball Power Play Odds
Multiplier Odds with 10x Odds without 10x
10x 1 in 43 N/A
5x 1 in 21.5 1 in 21
4x 1 in 14.33 1 in 14
3x 1 in 3.31 1 in 3.23
2x 1 in 1.79 1 in 1.75

Power Play may not always be available to players entering online from outside the USA.

Prizes and Odds of Winning

You win prizes by matching the numbers you picked to the winning ones drawn. There are fixed prizes in eight of the nine divisions, so you know exactly how much you will receive. The only prize that changes is the jackpot, which starts at a minimum of $40 million (approximately R560 million) and rolls over to the next draw when it is not won. The jackpot is shared if there are multiple winners.

The following table shows the prizes you can win, what they're worth with each of the Power Play multipliers, and the odds of winning:

Show All Answers


+ What time do Powerball draws take place?

Powerball draws occur every Wednesday and Saturday at 22:59 Eastern Time. Because much of the USA observes Daylight Saving Time and South Africa doesn’t, the draw time according to South Africa local time changes at certain points in the year. The table below shows exactly when draws occur throughout the year:

USA Powerball Draw Schedule
Start Date End Date Draw Time In USA Draw Time In South Africa
Second Sunday in March First Sunday in November 22:59 EDT 04:59 SAST
First Sunday in November Second Sunday in March 22:59 EST 05:59 SAST
+ When did Powerball start?

The first USA Powerball draw took place on 22 April 1992, with just 15 states taking part and players required to select five main numbers from 1 to 45, plus a Powerball number from a separate set of 1 to 45.

+ Is there a maximum jackpot?

No. The jackpot starts at $40 million and will keep growing until it is won.

+ What is the biggest prize ever won?

The largest lottery jackpot in history came when three ticket holders – from the states of California, Florida and Tennessee – shared a record $1.58 billion Powerball prize.

+ What is an annuity?

Jackpot winners in the USA have the choice between receiving the prize money in one big upfront payment, or spread out in regular ‘annuity’ payments over 29 years. The cash payout is always less than the annuity, as the interest generated over the 29 years of the annuity is also paid out to the player.

+ Can you win the jackpot from outside the USA?

Yes, third-party lottery betting and concierge websites allow you to participate in Powerball from outside the USA and in both cases you would be eligible to win all the prizes available, including the jackpot. For more information on how it works, visit the FAQs page.

+ Is USA Powerball the same as South Africa PowerBall?

No. Although the two games share a common name, they are completely unrelated to each other. The rules of playing, prizes, and odds of winning in both games are different.
