Arizona Lottery Powerball
The Powerball is one of the most popular Arizona Lottery games and mostly because it starts at $40 million and then makes national news when it gets over the $100 million + range as more and more people join their employer powerball pools and play the lottery for the first time because of all the of the buzz and hype that spreads.
With the Powerball you can either use a quick pick computer generated number or choose 5 white numbers from 1 to 69 plus one red powerball number 1 to 26 or a combo of sorts.
Players can multiply up to ten times their non-jackpot prizes with the enhanced Powerball Power Play multiplier. These prizes can be multiplied 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10* times.
Winning the Match 5 prize (all 5 white balls) still pays $2 million regardless of the multiplier number drawn.
*The Power Play 10 (10X) feature will be available when the annuitized jackpot amount is $150,000,000 or less.
Ask your retailer for a Trio!, and you’ll get one Mega Millions, one Powerball, and one The Pick ticket. Three big jackpots in one quick purchase!
