Powerball is a multi-state lottery game. The set prize amounts listed here are based on the expected number of winning plays sharing in the prize pool. In some cases, these prizes may be paid on a pari-mutuel basis and will be lower than these published prize levels. Refer to the official game rules (amended) for a detailed explanation of the pari-mutuel payment. The jackpot prize will be divided equally among all winning plays which correctly match five white balls plus the red Powerball that is drawn. Jackpot winners have 60 days after claiming that prize to choose how to be paid. The jackpot can be paid in increasing annual payments over 29 years (30 payments), or in one lump-sum cash payment. By purchasing a Powerball ticket, the player agrees to abide by the published Pennsylvania Lottery Rules and Regulations. In the event of a discrepancy, the published Rules and Regulations shall prevail.
