The group launched in 1987 and Lotto*America debuted in 1988. Mega Millions tickets went on sale in January 2010.

Revenue from the DC Lottery is allocated to the General Fund for the District. Since the Lottery was established, over $1.8 billion has been raised to provide valuable support to education, public safety, senior services and more.

Powerball® costs $2 per play.

Select five numbers from 1 to 69 for the white balls; then select one number from 1 to 26 for the red Powerball.

Choose your numbers on a play slip or let the lottery terminal randomly pick your numbers.

The Powerball jackpot grows until it is won.

Players win a prize by matching one of the 9 Ways to Win.

Where

Powerball is played in 45 states, Washington DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands!

Powerball drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. ET.

Sales cut-off times vary by one to two hours before the drawing, depending on the selling jurisdiction.

To find out where to watch the drawings, click here.

Power Play

Ask for Power Play® with your Powerball purchase!

For an additional $1 per play, the Power Play feature can multiply non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times!

The multiplier number is randomly selected just before each drawing.

The 10X multiplier is only in play when the advertised jackpot annuity is $150 million or less.

The Match 5 prize with Power Play is always $2 million.

Multi-Draw

Play the same set of numbers in multiple drawings!

Select the number of consecutive drawings you want to play in the Multi-Draw or Advance Play section of your play slip or tell the retailer how many drawings you wish to play.

The number of Multi-Draws or Advance Plays available for purchase is dependent on the selling jurisdiction.

How TALL

A Powerball jackpot of $40 million may not seem like much, but ask yourself this – is $40 million really a small amount of money? Is the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. a small building?

If you were to stack $100 bills, take a look at the heights the money would reach at each estimated jackpot amount.
