Game Rules

About the game

Powerball® is a multi-state jackpot game. Drawings are held at 9:59 p.m. CT every Wednesday and Saturday. Note: Draw sales end at 8:59 p.m. CT Wednesday and Saturday. Five numbered balls are drawn from 1 to 69 and one numbered ball is drawn from 1 to 26. If all your numbers match those that are drawn, you win the jackpot, which starts at an amount set by MUSL 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 multiply non-jackpot winnings by 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times (Except the Match-5 prize, which is set at $2 million).

POWERBALL® FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Playing Powerball®

Q: Where is Powerball® drawn?
A: Powerball® drawings are held in Florida. Past draws are available to watch online here: https://www.youtube.com/user/PowerbaLL39

Q: Is it possible for the Powerball® number to be the same as one of the five white ball numbers?
A: Yes. The five white ball numbers and the one Powerball® number are drawn from separate sets of balls, so the Powerball® number could be the same as one of the white ball numbers.

Q: Which has better odds — picking my own numbers or requesting a Quick Pick?
A: Whether you pick your own numbers or have the terminal randomly select numbers for you, the odds of winning are the same.

Q: What is Power Play®?
A: Power Play® is a prize multiplier that may increase non-jackpot winnings by as much as a million dollars. A multiplier of 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 is randomly selected during the drawing for determining prizes for the bottom seven Powerball® prize tiers. The multiplier will not apply to the Match-5 prize; instead, the Powerball® with Power Play® prize will be set at $2 million.

Points for Prizes ®

Q: Can I enter non-winning Powerball® tickets in Points for Prizes®?
A: Yes. Winning and non-winning numbers from terminal-generated games like Powerball® are eligible. Visit https://theclub.aslplayerservices.com/pia to enter and add Points for Prizes® points to your account. Points for Prizes® codes from terminal-generated games not associated with a draw must be entered within 180 days of purchase date whereas draw related games are based on the last draw date printed on the front of the ticket. Look for the 20 digit Points for Prizes Code.

Purchasing Tickets

Q: How much do Powerball® tickets cost?
A: Powerball® tickets cost $2 per play. The Power Play® option costs an additional $1 per play.

Q: Can I purchase Powerball® tickets in advance?
A: To play multiple upcoming draws, request from 2 to 20 Multi Draws either on the playslip or through the retailer. Multi Draws will include the next upcoming draw and be consecutive from that draw. Draws cannot be skipped.

Q: How late can I purchase Powerball® tickets on a draw night?
A: Powerball® sales are suspended one hour prior to the draw.

Q: Can a Powerball® ticket be voided or canceled?
A: No. Once a Powerball® ticket has been printed, it cannot be canceled.

Q: Can I buy Powerball tickets online or by mail?
A: No. Powerball® tickets must be purchased from a licensed lottery retailer.

Prizes and Claims

Q: Do Powerball® tickets expire?
A: Prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the draw date on which the prize was won.

Q: Do I have to match the numbers in the exact order drawn?
A: No. The order of the white ball numbers drawn does not matter, but the one red ball (Powerball®) must match the Powerball® number on the ticket.

Q: Can I redeem a winning Powerball® ticket in any state?
A: Although the winning numbers are the same in all Powerball® states, a ticket must be redeemed in the state in which it was purchased.

Q: I lost my ticket. Can I claim a prize with a playslip or store receipt?
A: Powerball® prizes can only be claimed with a ticket printed from the lottery terminal. Playslips or store receipts will not constitute proof of purchase. Lottery tickets are bearer instruments, meaning the person who presents the ticket for claim will be presumed to be the owner. Always sign the back of any lottery ticket immediately. If you lose a ticket before you sign it, you no longer have valid ownership of the ticket.

Q: If the Powerball® is drawn from a set of 26 balls, why are the odds of winning with just the Powerball® not 1 in 26?
A: The odds of winning the $4 prize for matching just the Powerball® are 1 in 38 because those odds are a combination of (1) matching the Powerball® and (2) not matching any of the white ball numbers. The odds of matching the Powerball® and one white ball are 1 in 92.

Powerball® Jackpot

Q: What happens if more than one person wins the jackpot?
A: If there is more than one jackpot-winning ticket, the prize will be split equally between the jackpot-winning tickets.

Q: Why does a jackpot winner receive a smaller cash amount than the advertised jackpot?
A: The advertised jackpot is the total amount won if a winner selects an annuity over 30 annual payments (29 years). The amount of cash on hand is actually less than that and the advertised jackpot is what the cash on hand would total if invested over the 29 years. If a player chooses a lump sum, the player does not receive the interest that the cash on hand would have earned over 29 years. Applicable withholding taxes will also be deducted.

Q: What happens if the jackpot is not claimed?
A: If the jackpot is not claimed within the time frame set by the jurisdiction in which it was won (180 days in Arkansas), the jackpot funds will be returned to the states based on each state’s proportion of the sales that contributed to that jackpot.

Q: What happens if an annuity prizewinner dies?
A: Annual prize payments can continue to be paid to the winner’s heirs, or the annuity may be cashed out by the estate.

Arkansas Powerball Rules

The basic rules of the game in Arkansas are consistent with every other participating jurisdiction, but there are a few aspects of playing Powerball which are specific to the state:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age to play.
  • Sales close at 8:59pm Central Time (9:59pm Eastern Time), one hour before the draw takes place.
  • You can play up to 20 consecutive draws in advance by selecting the appropriate number in the Multi-draw section of the playslip.
  • The state tax rate is seven percent.

You can watch the drawings live on the following TV stations, depending on where you are in Arkansas.

City Station Affiliate Channel
Fort Smith KFSM CBS 5
Jonesboro KAIT ABC/NBC 8
Little Rock KATV ABC 7

If you win a prize of up to $500, you can claim your money from any licensed lottery retailer in Arkansas or submit a claim by mail. For any award larger than $500, you must visit the state lottery’s headquarters if you want to redeem your winnings in person. You will need to fill out a claim form and provide photographic identification before being paid a prize over $500. You can also claim prizes between $500.01 and $1 million through the mail, but you will need to make a copy of your photo ID (such as your driver’s license or passport) and mail it with your winning ticket.

The Arkansas Lottery’s headquarters is open from 8:00am to 4:30pm CT Mondays through Fridays, although no claims are processed after 4:15pm. The address is shown below:

Arkansas Scholarship Lottery Claim Center
1st Floor – Union Plaza Building
124 West Capitol Ave.
Little Rock, AR 72201
Telephone No: 501-683-2060

The address where you should send in claims by mail is as follows:

Arkansas Scholarship Lottery Claim Center
P.O. Box 3838
Little Rock, AR 72203

If you play in a Powerball pool and wish for the prize money to be shared between all members, you need to fill out a вЂ˜request and release’ form from the Arkansas Lottery. Each member of your group must sign the form and specify their share of the prize. The Arkansas Lottery will then issue each individual a check with their share, providing that there are no more than 100 people in your group.

For pools of more than 100 people, the Arkansas Lottery has the right to issue the entire prize amount to whoever has signed the ticket. It would then be the responsibility of that person to distribute the money to the rest of the group. Group claims can only be processed at the lottery’s headquarters in Little Rock.

You have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim any prizes. Go to the Powerball Checker to see if you have won a prize in the last 180 days.

Lost Powerball tickets cannot be replaced, so you will not be able to claim a prize unless you have a winning entry in your possession. You should sign the back of your ticket so that it cannot be claimed by someone else. If you receive a damaged or illegible ticket from a retailer, you should be given a new ticket and the damaged entry will be retained by the cashier. You will not be able to claim a prize with a ticket that is not intact or has been modified in any way.

As lottery wins in Arkansas are deemed a matter of public record by state law, you cannot stay anonymous if you claim a large Powerball prize and someone wants to know about it. No details will be released at the moment you claim your prize if you would prefer to stay private, but anybody can file a Freedom of Information request, compelling the lottery to release certain information about you.

In these cases your name, home town and prize amount will be disclosed. Additional information, such as your age and address, will not be made public without your consent. See the Winners section to find out more about the state’s first jackpot winner Harold Bailey, who wanted to remain private but was legally unable to.

When you buy a Powerball ticket in Arkansas, it goes towards prize winners, students and lottery retailers. The prize pot gets the biggest portion, 68.1 percent, while 9.8 percent goes towards retailer commissions and contract costs. Only 3.4 percent is required for the general operational and administrative expenses of running the lottery, leaving the remaining 18.7 percent as income, which is all put towards scholarships.

The Arkansas Lottery has provided over $780 million for more than 300,000 scholarships since 2009, helping students to receive a better education than might otherwise have been possible. Scholarships can be awarded to residents enrolled in non-profit, public, and private colleges and universities throughout the state.

The lottery has paid out more than $2.6 billion in prizes since 2009 and more than $220 million in retailer commissions in the same period.

Powerball tickets only went on sale in Arkansas in October 2009, but the state had its first jackpot winner within three months when Harold Bailey from Conway landed $25 million on January 2nd 2010. Bailey purchased his winning ticket from the Crackerbox Food Store No.25, located in a Valero gas station on Arkansas 365, just north of Mayflower. He opted for the cash option of $12 million but declined to comment to the media. His identity was released due to a freedom of information request.
