Powerball is based in the United States and is one of the biggest lotteries in the world, with a jackpot that has reached $2.04 billion before. The jackpot starts at a minimum $20 million and it’s not capped, meaning that it increases until someone wins it which allows it to get to levels that no other lottery outside of the USA can match.

How to Play

Playing Powerball online allows you to win all the same prizes as if you purchased a ticket in the U.S., and at the same odds too. Here’s how to play the US Powerball:

Pick five numbers between 1 and 69, followed by a Powerball between 1 and 26. You can also hit the Quick Pick button to receive a random set of numbers and you can play up to eight times in one transaction.

Choose whether to enter one draw or subscribe to future draws for one month or three months at a time.

Add your entries to your cart.

Create an account or sign in to an existing one.

Pay for your entries and wait for the results to come through.

You will receive confirmation of your entry once the purchase has been successful – note that your entry is not finalised until the purchase has been completed.


If you have any further questions about how Powerball works or how to play, you may be able to find the answers below.

How do you win?

It’s simple: match your numbers with the winning numbers in the draw you placed your bet on. The more numbers you match, the more prize money you win. Match all five numbers plus the Powerball to win the jackpot, but you can win a prize for matching as little as just the Powerball.

How do you receive the prize money?

Smaller prizes are paid into your account automatically, but bigger prizes, including the Powerball jackpot, may require verification checks to be conducted before the money is paid out. In these instances, you will be contacted by a customer representative and guided through the claim process.

Is Powerball only available in the United States?

No- you can now play Powerball online from almost anywhere in the world. You buy your entries online so you don’t have to visit the United States to get your ticket, and you will be paid online directly the same prizes you would get if you were in the US.

Is Powerball the same as US Powerball?

There are many different “Powerball” lotteries around the world, but the one in the USA is the most popular, the most well known and regularly offers the biggest prizes. So in this case they are the same thing and if you hear the phrase “Powerball” on its own then someone is most likely referring to the lottery in the USA. There are however Powerball draws in South Africa, New Zealand and Australia that are well played in their own right.

What is the Powerball?

Obviously it’s the name of the lottery, but specifically the Powerball is the final ball drawn from a separate pool of 1 to 26. If you match the Powerball then you will win a prize, which is then increased should you match 1 or more of the main numbers drawn as well.

Is it better to Quick Pick or choose your numbers for Powerball?

It doesn’t make a difference to your odds of winning if you use the quick pick option or choose your numbers when entering Powerball.

When many people choose their numbers, they base them on birthdays or significant dates, which only range from 1 to 31 due to the maximum number of days in a month. By doing this you immediately make the chances of winning lower as if the numbers 32 – 69 are drawn then you have no chance of matching them. But there have been cases where players have won Powerball with all numbers 31 or lower, so really anything could happen!
