Tomorrow, January 22nd, the next US Powerball draw, the seventh of this year, will take place. This is a special occasion, not just because of the fantastic $131 million jackpot that is at stake, but mostly because it will be the first Powerball draw ever in which a Power Play number will be drawn along with the regular lottery numbers and the Powerball number.
Up until Powerball draw #2014/6, every secondary prize category had its own fixed Power Play multiplier number. The second prize was doubled, the third prize quadrupled, the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh prizes doubled, and the eighth and ninth prizes tripled. This system is now history! From now on a general Power Play number will be drawn in every Powerball draw and that number counts for every prize category, except for the jackpot and the $1 million second place prize. The jackpot will, for obvious reasons, not be multiplied. The Power Play still multiplies the second prize, but with a fixed multiplying number: 2. So rest assured, the $1 million prize can still be doubled using the Power Play!
Take a shot at the $131 million Powerball jackpot!
