How to play Powerball
Playing the Powerball is simple yet exciting, one of the easiest ways is to get a Quick Pick which will generate random numbers for you at the terminal. One line of numbers consists of five main numbers, and one red Powerball number. The five main numbers are drawn from a pool of 59, whilst the Powerball number is drawn from a separate pool of 35. The odds of matching all five main numbers including the Powerball are 1 in 175,223,510.
if you prefer to pick your own numbers, then you may want to consider taking a statistical approach like many other players. By looking at statistics you can see which numbers are drawn the most, which numbers are drawn the least, and also which numbers are most overdue to be drawn. From there you can compare the numbers and see if any fit into more than one list, or you can pick them completely at random.

Biggest Powerball Jackpots
Many regular Powerball players will remember that when the Powerball jackpot gets to around $350 million, it begins to increase between drawings due to increased ticket sales, which, if the jackpot is not won, leads to incredibly large jackpots such as the May 18th 2013 Powerball which was won by Gloria MacKenzie.
There have been many times since the Powerball changes came into effect in January 2012, that the jackpot has climbed to alarming amounts (often reaching over $300 million), and has caused a frenzy among players wanting to buy tickets. In November 2012, two tickets split the $587,500,000 jackpot (that’s $293,750,000 each before taxes, and less if claimed in a lump sum). Not only do these big jackpot draws create multi-millionaires, but players that aren’t lucky enough to match all the required numbers still have many chances to win smaller prizes, for example if you were to match the five main numbers without the Powerball then you would win $1,000,000, and better still, if you played with the PowerPlay enabled, you could double that prize to $2,000,000. The odds of winning the second tier prize of $1 million are 1 in 5,153,633.
