To play the US Powerball you will be selecting five numbers from a set of white balls numbered 1 to 69 and a single additional number from the red Powerballs numbered 1 to 26. US Powerball winning numbers are selected each Wednesday and Saturday night at 23:00 EST. You can select your numbers through randomized quick pick or manual selection.

The winning numbers are then determined using two ball machines. The machine used is a Halogen Machine manufactured by Smartplay International.

There is an odd difference of 1 in 292,201,338 of winning a jackpot prize in every play. Each gameplay will cost $2, or $3 (additional $1) with the Power Play option. Powerplay is additional Powerball winning matrix which offers an optional multiplier called the Power Play, which multiplies the seven bottom prize divisions by 2, 3, 4, 5 or up to 10 times, which depends on the draw and the jackpot prize size. 

All Powerball winnings are subject to the state and federal taxes. All non-jackpot prizes are fixed amounts with the exception in California. Should you be the very lucky jackpot winner, you will have the option of receiving the prize in cash in two installments - one will be from the winning jurisdiction, then the combined funds from the other members or as a graduated life annuity which is going to be paid in 30 yearly installments. Each life annuity payment is 5% higher from the previous year to adjust for the inflation.
