We break down:

Read on below to find out more about this amazing lottery and how you too could soon be in with a chance of becoming the next lottery billionaire.

Why you should play Powerball

For just a single ₹300 Powerball entry you get access to the minimum guaranteed jackpot of ₹300 Crore!

If the jackpot isn’t won it rolls over into the next draw.

In January 2016, Powerball’s signature unlimited rollovers took the jackpot up to an astonishing $1.586 billion!

Match the Powerball on its own to get your money back.

The rules of Powerball and winning percentages

To play Powerball you must choose five numbers between 1 and 69 as well as your Powerball between 1 and 26.

Match all 5 main draw numbers plus the Powerball to win the jackpot.

Jackpots are split between all winning ticket holders.

Below the jackpot, each prize winner receives a fixed amount, no matter how many people match that tier.

Draws are twice a week at 08:29 IST on Thursdays and Sundays.

Powerball vs Mega Millions

Powerball and Mega Millions are the USA’s top two lotteries.

Both are playable on LotteryWorld, so let’s take a look at the similarities and differences between these titans.

The headline statistics are summarised in this table:

As you can see, these massive lotteries are super similar in almost every major aspect.

Powerball has slightly better odds than Mega Millions for its top jackpot, as well as double the prize for matching only one ball (Powerball and Mega Ball, respectively).

Mega Millions, meanwhile, has the slightly better odds of winning a prize overall.

There are a few subtle differences in the mid-range prizes, see extensive analysis in our Top 5 Recommended Lotteries article.
