    *In certain rare instances these prizes may be paid on a pari-mutuel basis, and will be lower than these published prize levels. For the jackpot prize, if two or more people match all six winning numbers, that jackpot is shared equally among the winners. After receiving an initial payment shortly after the prize is claimed, the initial jackpot winner(s) will receive their prize in annual installments over a 29-year period unless, within 60 days from the date they claim their prize, they request the cash option method of payment. Power Play increases non-jackpot prizes only. Note that any set prizes or Power Play prizes, including the Match 5+0 prizes, may be reduced if wins exceed the available prize fund. For a current estimate on the cash amount for Powerball, Mega Millions and Lotto, contact the Illinois Lottery.

    **Power Play is a special feature that increases the value of prize levels 3 through 9 by 2, 3, 4 or 5 times if a player purchased the Power Play feature. The Power Play number will be randomly drawn at the time of the Powerball drawing. The Match 5+0 prize doubles to $2,000,000 with Power Play!

    POWERBALL FAQ

    Why is Powerball changing?

    We understand Powerball is a player favorite. Periodically, the Multi-State Lottery Association, MUSL, researches and evaluates various changes to the game to ensure that the Powerball game delivers on its promise to offer large jackpot amounts, an exciting Power Play option, and optimal mid-level prize tiers for players across the country. As a result of these efforts, three main changes will be implemented starting October 4th.

    First, feedback from players and retailers has indicated that larger jackpots would make this player favorite more appealing. The upcoming changes on October 4th have addressed the desire for bigger jackpots. Secondly, there are some very positive changes happening to the Power Play add-on feature. The Power Play option will now periodically offer a 10 times multiplier on a promotional basis. The 10 times multiplier will be offered at the starting jackpot and up to and including $150 million. Lastly, the Match 4+1 prize has been increased from $10,000 to $50,000.

    What changes are being made to Powerball?

    The Powerball base game will change. 5 numbers will be drawn out of 69 instead of 5 out of 59, and 1 Powerball number will be drawn out of 26 instead of 35. In addition to the matrix change, the Match 4 + 1 prize will be increased from $10,000 to $50,000. Due to the matrix changes, the jackpot odds have increased from 1:175 million to 1:292 million. However, the overall odds of winning a prize are improving from 1:31.8 to 1:24.9.

    What is Power Play?

    Power Play allows players to increase their non-jackpot winnings, except the Match 5 prize, by 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times if they purchased the Power Play feature. (The Match 5 prize is increased to $2 million if a player adds Power Play regardless of the Power Play number drawn.) A 10 times multiplier will be available for initially advertised jackpot amounts of $150 million or less. The Power Play number will be randomly drawn at the time of the Powerball drawing. When a ticket is purchased at retail, your ticket will clearly be marked with a YES indicator for the Power Play feature. If you don’t purchase Power Play, your ticket will be clearly marked with a NO indicator for the Power Play feature.

    What does Power Play cost?

    Power Play costs an extra $1 per game. The choice to play Power Play applies to all games played on the ticket. The base Powerball game will remain $2.

    Will Power Play multiply all my non-jackpot winnings?

    No, the Match 5 prize will not be multiplied by 3, 4, 5, or 10. It will increase to $2 million for a Match 5 of 69 win, even when the Power Play option is selected./p>
