A total of 215 players matched four white balls, each winning $100, and 72 of them purchased the Power Play option, which won them $300.

The next Powerball draw will be on Sunday, November 21, with an estimated jackpot prize of $205 million and a cash value of $148.1 million.

How to Play Powerball

Powerball tickets, which cost $2 per play, are sold in 45 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Ticket holders each select five numbers from one to 69 for the five white balls and a number from one to 26 for the Powerball.

Players can multiply non-jackpot prizes by two, three, four, five or 10 times by purchasing the Power Play option for an additional $1 per play.

Draws take place every Wednesday and Saturday from the Florida Lottery draw studio in Tallahassee.

The Prizes

"There are nine ways to win a prize in Powerball. All prizes are set cash amounts, except the Grand Prize. In California, prize payout amounts are pari-mutuel and determined by sales and the number of winners," the Powerball website explains.

The Powerball jackpot prize value continues to grow until it is won. "The Match 5 + Power Play prize value is always $2 million, while the 10X multiplier is only in play when the advertised jackpot is $150 million or less," according to the website.

Jackpot winners can receive their prize as either an annuity or a lump-sum payment. For those who choose the annuity option, the winner is guaranteed to receive 30 graduated payments over 29 years. The annual payments increase by five percent until the 30th and final payment, the website notes.

What Are the Odds of Winning?

The overall odds of winning a prize are one in 24.9 and the winning odds are the same in every Powerball draw, according to the Powerball website.

"Even if there are more tickets sold in a particular drawing, your odds of winning a prize are the same," the website states.
