FAQs about the Powerball lottery

What is the Powerball lottery, and how does it work?

The Powerball lottery is a popular American lottery game that offers massive jackpots. To play the Powerball lottery, players must choose five main numbers from a pool of 69 white balls and one Powerball number from a pool of 26 red balls. To win the jackpot, players must match all five main numbers and the Powerball number. There are nine ways to win prizes in the Powerball lottery, with the odds of winning a prize being approximately 1 in 25.

The Powerball drawing occurs every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Time. The winning numbers are randomly generated by a computer program. The results are immediately posted on the Powerball website.

How big can Powerball jackpots get?

Powerball jackpots start at $20 million and increase with each drawing that does not have a jackpot winner. The record for the largest Powerball jackpot ever won is $2.04 billion as of November 2022, which was won by a single ticket by a man in California, thus making it the largest jackpot to be won in history. However, it’s important to note that the odds of winning the jackpot are extremely low, with the odds of matching all five main numbers and the Powerball number is approximately 1 in 292 million.

Can Powerball winners remain anonymous?

Whether or not Powerball winners can remain anonymous depends on the state where the winning ticket was purchased. Some states allow winners to remain anonymous, while others require that the winner’s name and location be made public. In some states, winners can set up a trust or use a lawyer to claim the prize on their behalf in an attempt to remain anonymous. However, it’s important to consult with a lawyer or financial advisor before claiming a lottery prize to ensure that all legal requirements are met.

What happens if multiple people win the Powerball jackpot?

If multiple people win the Powerball jackpot, the prize is split equally among the winners. For example, if two people match all five main numbers and the Powerball number, they will split the jackpot evenly. This has happened several times in the past, including with the $1.586 billion jackpot in 2016, which was split between three winners.
