Powerball is one of the most widely played lottery games in the U.S. Offered by 44 states, the lottery is managed by the Multi-State Lottery Association.

Powerball holds the record of producing the largest jackpot of $1.586 billion in history. Three winners shared the prize.

The minimum guaranteed jackpot for  Powerball is $40 million. Powerball results are announced every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 PM EST. Ticket sales close at 10:00 PM EST. Jackpot winners can either choose to receive a lump sum amount or get the entire amount annuitized.

The lottery uses a 5/69 plus 1/26 matrix, meaning five numbers are drawn from a pool of sixty-nine numbers and a Powerball number is drawn from 26 balls. Players who want to participate in the lottery must pay a fee of $2 per game. 

Those using the Power Play option need to pay $3 per entry. When activated, the Power Play option enhances lower-tier winnings by up to 5 or 10 times (when the jackpot is less than $150 million).

Powerball winnings are subject to state and federal taxes. Depending on their state, players get anywhere between 90 days to a year to claim their prizes. To play the game, a player must be at least 18 years of age, except in Nebraska where players below 19 years of age are not admitted, and Arizona, Iowa, and Louisiana where the legal age to play the game is 21 years.
