Anyone who is staying in one of the places mentioned above can participate in this lottery game. You don’t have to be an American citizen or resident to participate. All you have to do is to go to a local licensed Powerball retail or agent and buy a ticket for yourself. You can of course buy more than one if you want. You have to choose 5 numbers for the white-colored balls and 1 number for the red-colored power ball. You can choose any 5 numbers between 1 and 69 for the white-colored balls and one number between 1 and 26 for the red-colored power balls.
Once you choose, make sure the agent registers the numbers correctly and you keep the ticket with you. Each ticket for this lottery game costs $2. If you want to select a Power Play which is available in five different options: x2, x3, x4, x5, and x10, you have to pay $1 extra. So, it will cost you $3 if you select to play with the Power Play. You can also select the & Quick Pick option which will help you to draw all the 6 numbers at random for you. This is the best option for those who are confused about what number to choose and want to leave all of it to luck.
The prizes increases by 2 times, 3 times, 4 times, 5 times, and 10 times based on the Power Play you choose. For instance, if you choose Power Play x2, then the prize money will be 2 times more than the base prize. If you choose Power Play x5, then the prize money will be 5 times more than the base prize. So, if you win the $100 using Power Play x2, you will get $200.
