The best way to play Powerball from Europe!

How many numbers do you need to win Powerball?


In order to win the envisioned $440 million jackpot tonight, you’ll have to match all 5 white balls in any order, and you’ll need to match the red Powerball number as well. The odds of this going on are a little over 1 in 292 million. If multiple people happen to win the jackpot, then you definitely be splitting the winnings. Don’t overlook that you won't go away with the precise amount of the jackpot, even in case you’re the only winner. Taxes will dispose of some of your winnings, just for starters. If you matched one of the white balls, you will not get any cash. But in case you only match one number and it occurs to be the purple Powerball, you’ll walk away with $4. Not a lot, but sufficient to buy yourself a couple more tickets.


Here’s how the other matches work.

If you match all five white balls, in any order, but not the Powerball, then you’ll get $1 million.

If you match four out of five of the white balls and the Powerball, you’ll win $50,000.

The amount you win drops dramatically after this. You have two ways to win $100: either match four out of five of the white balls OR match three white balls and the Powerball.

Next is your shot at $7. You’ll win $7 if you either match three out of five of the white balls OR you match two white balls and the Powerball.

Last is your shot at $4, which you could use to buy two more Powerball tickets if you wanted. You’ll get this if you match one white ball and the Powerball OR if you just match the Powerball.

So as you could see, in case you’re just disturbed about winning something with your $2 price ticket, then you definitely need to match one number, the red Powerball. But in case you’re hoping to stroll away with the large jackpot, you then match every single ball that’s drawn. Many players match just one white ball and get excited, wondering they’re taking home some money. Unfortunately, that simply isn’t the case. Even matching just 2 white balls, without matching the Powerball, isn’t sufficient to stroll away with any cash.
