Powerball Prizes

There are nine different ways to win Powerball prizes in every draw, based on how many numbers you match. You can win $4 just for matching the Powerball, while the jackpot is won by matching all five main numbers plus the Powerball. The top prize starts at $20 million ( * During the Coronavirus pandemic, the starting jackpot may be lower than this) and increases every time it is not won.

If there are multiple winners of the jackpot, it will be shared equally between them. The eight prizes below the jackpot are fixed amounts, so for these prizes there is a guaranteed payout regardless of how many winning players there are. Go to the Powerball Numbers page to see the latest prize payouts.
