It's Easy to Play Powerball!
Pick Your Numbers
Select 5 from 69 numbers and 1 out of 26 numbers for the Powerball. Use a Playslip to choose your numbers or check the QP (Quick Pick) box for randomly generated numbers. Or, simply ask your retailer for a Powerball Quick Pick!
Buy Your Ticket
Ticket buyers must be at least 18. Powerball tickets cost $2 and are available at most Colorado retailers. Add the Power Play option for an extra $1 per line of play and multiply your winnings up to ten times the original amount (excluding jackpot and Match 5 prize)*. The Power Play multiplier (2, 3, 4, 5 or 10) is drawn before the Powerball winning numbers. The Power Play 10X multiplier applies only to drawings with jackpot amounts of $40 million to $150 million.
Play Multiple Drawings
Purchase up to 13 weeks (26 drawings) in advance with Advance Play. Just check the Advance Play box on the Playslip or ask your retailer for it. You’ll play the same numbers for all drawings.

* Powerball officials may reduce prize levels for Powerball and/or Power Play, including the Match 5+0 prize, when the number of winner claims exceed the available prize fund for a given draw. In this instance, dollars allocated to each prize level impacted will be divided equally among all winners.
