What do you get if you match 5 Powerball numbers?

We all play Powerball because we want to win the jackpot cash prize. However, not everyone knows that there are also second prizes that are worth playing for. Even the second prize is enough to change your life with.

5 Matching Numbers

You will need to match 5 out of the 6 numbers in order to win the second prize.

Keep in mind that you cannot just match any 5 numbers in order to win the second prize. You have to match the first five numbers.

Before Powerball changed its rules on the 15th of January 2012, you would have won 250,000 US Dollars for matching the first five numbers. You can now win up to 1 million US Dollars for matching the first five numbers. That is a four-fold increase. That is great for Lottery players.

With that being said, you don’t always win 1 million US Dollars by matching five out of six Powerball numbers. There are times where you could win twice that amount. A Powerball ticket will cost you 2 Dollars, but if you spend another Dollar, you could buy the PowerPlay option. In other words – the ticket will cost you 3 Dollars.

The PowerPlay option does the following – If you are lucky enough to match five out of six Powerball numbers, the 1 million Dollar prize doubles to 2 million Dollars. So you basically get 1 million Dollars for spending 1 Dollar more on a Powerball ticket. The odds of winning the second prize in the Powerball are far better than the odds of winning the jackpot. If you are playing for the second prize you have a 1 in 5,153,632 chance of winning where you only have 1 in 175,223,510 chance of winning if you are playing for the jackpot.

Do you feel good about the fact that the second prize in Powerball has increased? If you are feeling that luck has been on your side for a while, you should go out and buy a PowerPlay option Powerball ticket and take a chance on life. Who says money can’t buy you happiness? I beg to differ.

Happy betting!
