    powerball prize table

    *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! A player must choose the Power Play option when they buy their Powerball ticket to qualify for the Power Play prizes.
