How many numbers do you need to win a prize in Powerball?

No tickets matched the winning numbers on Wednesday, so the roll-over Powerball jackpot has risen again ahead of the latest draw, which takes place at 10:59pm ET today, Saturday 30 July.

A regular Powerball ticket costs $2. To play, you must pick five numbers from 1 to 69 and a Powerball number from 1 to 26.

For an extra $1, you can add what’s called a Power Play. This multiplies winnings by two, three, four, five or 10, depending on the multiplier number picked out of the hat before the draw itself takes place.

Power Play isn’t applied to the jackpot, however, and the multiplier is never higher than two if you win the $1m second prize.

In some states - Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee and Washington - you can also pay $1 for a so-called Double Play.

 This option sees players’ numbers added to a second draw after the Powerball draw, with a maximum cash prize of $10m.
