Powerball is a popular lottery game played in many states across the United States. To play the game, players must select five numbers from a pool of 69 white balls and one number from a pool of 26 red balls, which is called the Powerball.
To win the jackpot, a player must match all five white balls and the Powerball number. However, even if a player doesn’t match all the numbers, there are still several other prize categories based on the number of matching white balls and/or the Powerball number. The more numbers a player matches, the higher the prize they can win.
