How to Check Your Powerball Ticket
The best part of playing Powerball is checking your numbers to see if you’ve won any of the lottery prizes. This is when the adrenaline reached the highest levels. But how do you check your Powerball ticket correctly? Here is everything you need to know:
Check your 5 main numbers in the main number section – the numbers drawn from 1 to 69.
Check your Powerball number in the additional numbers section – the number drawn from 1 to 25.
Check your numbers for all the prize categories in the US Powerball – matching only some of the winning numbers could still earn you a lot of money.
Double check the date of the draw against the date on your ticket to make sure you have the correct ticket for that draw.
- Please note that the main numbers and the Powerball number are not interchangeable. For example, if the Powerball number is 6 and you have that in your main numbers, but not in the additional number section, you cannot count it as a match because it was drawn from a different guess range.
- The Power Play number will be displayed in the results (from 2 to 5, and 10 when the jackpot is below $150 million), but you will not find it on your ticket. You do not choose your Power Play number, but you can tick the multiplier box to have this option active (for a small additional fee) when you put in your ticket.
