Prize Rules

Powerball prizes must be claimed in the state where the tickets were purchased. Each state has its own rules about when prizes must be claimed and it is the responsibility of the player to come forward in time. Visit the How to Claim page for more information. Winning tickets must be checked and validated by the lottery operator in the state where the ticket was bought, or by an agent of the operator, such as an authorized retailer, before prizes can be paid out.

Anyone who wins a large Powerball prize must pay federal taxes in the US, regardless of whether or not they are a resident. This is set at a rate depending on your total annual income (including money from lottery winnings). The lottery makes an immediate 25 percent federal withholding on prizes of more than $5,000, and most states levy a local withholding, although Tennessee and South Dakota do not.

Below are the tax withholdings by state, although certain other factors – such as residency – could affect these. For further advice, consult a professional financial advisor.

Why is the cash option different than the advertised jackpot?

The Powerball jackpot is an estimated 29-year annuity value, with a total 30 payments (the first payment happens right away, followed by 29 annual payments).  When players choose
the annuity option for their prize, the state lottery pays the prize out over 29 years (30 payments) by
buying U.S. Government Treasury Securities, which earn interest and mature annually over
the 29 years.  That annual return is the amount the winners receive each year for the
29 year period.  With the cash option, the state lottery will take the amount of
money that would have been invested and will pay it directly to the winner in one
payment.  Both payment options have federal and applicable state taxes deducted
from them, although with an annuity option you pay taxes gradually on each annual payout, not all at once like with the cash option.

Как играть в лотерею Powerball

До 2015 года в Powerball играли, выбирая пять номеров от 1 до 59 и одно число от 1 до 35. Для того, чтобы стать победителем джекпота, вы должны отгадать все пять основных шаров (белые шары) и один Powerball (красный шар). Джек-поты в этой лотерее начинаются как минимум с $ 40 млн. При отсутствии победителей сумма с каждым розыгрышем увеличивается и может достигать впечатляющих сумм.

С октября 2015 года оператор Powerball ввёл несколько новых интересных модификаций к игре, а именно:

  • Стали разыгрываться 5 белых шаров из барабана с 69 шарами и 1 красный шар из 26. Это изменение означает переход к более крупным джекпотам. Также лотерея Powerball улучшила шансы на получение небольших призов.
  • Был добавлен новый мультипликатор 10Х для функции “PowerPlay”.
  • Приз при выборе правильных 4-х белых шаров и 1-ого красного увеличился с $ 10.000 до $ 50.000

Выигрыши Powerball

Тиражи этой лотереи проходят в 22:59 в среду и субботу в городе Таллахасси (Флорида), по американскому времени.

  • Джек-пот разыгрывается при совпадении всех номеров шаров в любом порядке.
  • Второй приз – выигрыш путём совпадения пяти белых шаров в любом порядке – выдаётся наличными $ 1,000,000 единовременно.
  • Угадываете, по крайней мере, три номера белых шаров – получаете 7$.
  • Каждый раз, когда вы угадали красный шар Powerball, вы получаете 4$. Общие шансы выиграть приз в игре примерно 1 к 25.

Каждый билет стоит $ 2. И в этом билете можно отметить до 10 последовательных комбинаций с доплатой. Продажи лотерейных билетов прекращаются за 59 минут до начала розыгрыша, но государство может закрыть продажу ранее.

В игре есть возможность подключения опции Power Play, которая представляет собой специальную дополнительную функцию, позволяющую победителю увеличить первоначальные призовые суммы (за исключением джек-пота). Опция Power Play стоит $ 1 и может быть выбрана, когда вы покупаете билет. С использованием  Power Play выигрыш возрастает в 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 раз в зависимости от числа, которое выбрали (2X, 3X, 4X, 5Х или 10Х).

Например, совпадение номеров 5-ти белых шаров с опцией Power Play увеличивает размер приза до $ 2 000 000 и выплачивается в виде суммы денежных средств единовременно (без опции аннуитетных платежей).
Однако, умножитель 10Х активен только тогда, когда джекпот Powerball равен или ниже $ 150 миллионов долларов США. В противном случае будут применяться только множители 2, 3, 4 или 5 .

Известные Powerball победители

Крупнейший джекпот, который когда-либо видели на Powerball — и второй по величине в США — произошёл 18 мая 2013 года, когда один билет выиграл $ 590 500 000. Причём получил деньги самый старый из всех участников розыгрыша в истории лотереи.  Другие заметные победы включают 365 млн. долл. США. Тогда джекпот выиграла в феврале 2006 года группа из восьми игроков из Небраски.

Варианты получения выигрыша Powerball

Счастливчик, выигравший джекпот, может выбрать, как ему получить деньги. Предлагается 2 варианта. Первый вариант — единовременно за минусом суммы налога с учетом налогового законодательства США. Примерно получается около 40% от размера выигрыша.
Второй вариант — это частичные ежегодные платежи. При выборе этой опции есть возможность получать свой выигрыш в течение 29 лет (всего 30 платежей с учётом первой немедленной уплаты).

Можно ли играть, если не живёте в Америке?

Конечно, можете участвовать в лотереях, используя официальные сайты Powerball, если есть возможность получения денег на ваш электронный кошелёк.

Prizes and Odds of Winning

You win prizes by matching the numbers you picked to the winning ones drawn. There are fixed prizes in eight of the nine divisions, so you know exactly how much you will receive. The only prize that changes is the jackpot, which starts at a minimum of $40 million (approximately R560 million) and rolls over to the next draw when it is not won. The jackpot is shared if there are multiple winners.

The following table shows the prizes you can win, what they’re worth with each of the Power Play multipliers, and the odds of winning:

USA Powerball prizes are subject to differing levels of tax depending on where you play the game. For players in the USA, a federal tax of at least 24 percent is withheld on any prize greater than $5,000, while some states also withhold their own tax on winnings. If you play the game from South Africa, you could also be taxed on Powerball prizes. Go to the Taxes page for more information.

Cash vs Annuity

Powerball jackpot winners have the option of receiving their winnings as a one-off cash lump sum, or as annuity payments.

The annuity option entitles you to the full advertised jackpot amount (minus taxes), in 30 payments over 29 years. The first payment will be made immediately and each subsequent payment increases by 5%.

The benefits of annuity payments are that you receive the full jackpot amount, as opposed to a reduced cash value (see below), and you have the security of receiving a steady income for the foreseeable future.

Many winners choose to receive the jackpot as a one-off cash lump sum. However, the value of a lump sum payout is always less than it would be for the annuity option. This is because the cash prize represents the actual funds in the jackpot pool at the time of the draw, while the annuity value is based on the lottery’s expected return from investing the cash sum over 29 years. The annuity sum is guaranteed to the player and they receive the full amount even if the lottery makes investments that do not achieve the expected return.

If an annuity winner dies before receiving all of their payments, the prize transfers to their estate or to a beneficiary designated by them. Different states have different rules on whether the estate receives annual payments or the balance of the award.

Power Play Prizes

The Power Play is an add-on that you can opt in to when you enter Powerball. For an additional stake, the Power Play increases any non-jackpot prizes won by up to 10 times their original value.

Alongside each main Powerball draw, a Power Play number – either 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 – is also selected. If you opt in to Power Play, any non-jackpot prizes you win are multiplied by this number. The Power Play number is the same for all players, and is available in all territories that offer Powerball, with the exception of California. The following conditions apply for the Power Play add-on:

  • You must opt in to play Power Play at the point you purchase a Powerball ticket. You cannot elect to play at a later date.
  • The jackpot prize is not included in Power Play, so will retain its original value regardless of which Power Play number is selected.
  • The Match 5 prize will only be multiplied by a maximum of 2x its original value, regardless of which Power Play number is selected.
  • The 10x Power Play is only available when the jackpot value is less than $150 million.

The table below shows the prizes on offer when you play Power Play:

Annuity vs. Cash

98% of Powerball jackpot winners chose to take the cash option. Or to put it another way, only 4 winners in the last 13 years (2003 — 2016) chose the annuity option.

If you win the Powerball jackpot, you have the option of taking an annuity — an annual payment over 30 instalments — or a cash lump sum paid to you in full. You’ll see there’s quite a difference between the two. This is because the cash lump sum pays out whatever’s in the jackpot fund, whereas the annuity includes both the cash sum and the interest generated by investing it over the next 29 years. The value of the annuity option also has the added benefit of increasing by 5% annually.
