Powerball is a multi-state jackpot game. Drawings are held at 9:59 p.m. CST every Wednesday and Saturday. Five numbered balls are drawn from 1 to 59 and one numbered ball is drawn from 1 to 35. If all your numbers match those that are chosen, you win the jackpot, which starts at $40 million and grows until someone wins. If other players also match all six numbers, the prize will be shared in equal amounts. Each Powerball play is $2. For an additional dollar, you can add the Power Play option to increase non-jackpot winnings by as much as a million dollars.

The next drawing is Tuesday, Sept. 17, at 10 p.m. CST.
