There will be a drawing on Mondays!
If you’re a player who loves playing Powerball, you’re going to love this news. Starting Monday, August 23, Powerball will add a third weekly drawing on Mondays!
If you’re a player who’s never played Powerball, here’s how the game works. Pick five numbers from 1 through 69 and then one Powerball number from 1 through 26. The goal is to match the numbers you choose to those that are drawn.
If you don’t have any particular numbers you want to play, you can choose to use Easy Pick, and the computer will choose your numbers for you. If you want more information on how to play Powerball, what the Power Play® add-on is, play options, the game’s prizes and the odds, the Powerball game page is the place for you.
You can purchase a Powerball ticket at a Lottery retailer, Lottery Vending Machine or online. That’s three ways to play a game that gives you a chance to win a jackpot! Note that you will need a valottery.com account to purchase a Powerball ticket online.
As of this post, Powerball drawings take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11 p.m. On August 23, Mondays join the drawing schedule.
That’s an extra chance to play and an extra chance to win each week!
Odds of winning the Powerball jackpot: 1 in 292,201,338.
