For an additional $1, you can choose the Power Play add-on. This will make the overall price of your Powerball ticket $3. The Power Play is a cool feature because it multiplies the non-jackpot prizes giving you a chance to still win huge even if you do not win the ultimate prize. The prize can multiply by 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x!
For $1 extra on-top of the $2 classic Powerball ticket, you can choose the Double Play feature. Totalling to $3, this add-on allows you to play the same set of numbers in a special Double Play drawing after the main Powerball draw. The top prize you can win from the Double Play drawing is $10 million. It is only available in select jurisdictions.
