PowerBall® PowerPlay®

Rhode

Did You Know?

Rhode Island was one of the founding members of the Multi-State Lottery Association which established the Lotto America game in 1987. This multi-state game became PowerBall® in 1992. On January 15, 2012, the PowerBall® game was improved, and went from $1 to $2 per play to create more millionaires, bigger starting jackpots, bigger rolls, and better odds of winning!

PowerBall® PowerPlay® has become one of the most popular Lottery games due to its extremely high jackpots. The highest jackpot amount to date was $590.5 million on May 18, 2013, won by a ticket sold in Florida.

Jackpots start at $40 million, and continue to increase by no less than $10 million per drawing until someone wins. Plus players can increase their chances of becoming a multi-millionaire by playing PowerPlay®. PowerPlay® increases all non-jackpot prizes. See prize table below. The $1,000,000 prize for matching 5/5 white balls will increase to $2,000,000 when you purchase PowerPlay®!
