Winning Numbers

The winning numbers for the Feb. 14 drawing will be revealed at 11:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday night.

Cash Option

If there is a winner on Wednesday and they choose the cash option, they could now go home with more than $137.7 million, according to the lottery.

Odds of Winning

It's important to keep in mind that the chances of winning Powerball's top prize are exceedingly slim. The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are about 1 in 292.2 million. The overall odds of winning a Powerball prize (across all tiers) are about 1 in 24.9.

How to Play

To participate in the Powerball game, players can purchase a ticket for $2 per play. The game requires players to choose five numbers from one to 69 for the white balls, and one number from one to 26 for the red Powerball. Alternatively, players can opt to receive random numbers.

Jackpot and Non-Jackpot Prizes

In order to win the jackpot, players must match all five white balls and the red Powerball. Powerball also offers eight other ways to win based on the number of matched balls in the non-jackpot tiers. The non-jackpot prizes range from $4 to $1 million. By paying an additional $1, players can choose to participate in the "Powerplay" that increases non-jackpot winnings by 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 times. The 10X Powerplay option is exclusively applicable to jackpots worth $150 million or less. The game's "Match 5" prize for the second-tier is limited to a maximum of $2 million if the Powerplay feature is utilized.

Where to Buy Tickets

Tickets can be purchased in person at gas stations, convenience stores, grocery stores, and some airport terminals. In addition, tickets can be ordered online through Jackpocket, the official digital lottery courier of the USA TODAY Network, in select U.S. states and territories.

Conclusion

The Powerball jackpot of $285 million presents an enticing opportunity for lottery players. However, it's important to remember that the odds of winning are extremely slim. To participate, players can purchase a ticket for $2 per play and choose their numbers. The winning numbers will be revealed on Wednesday night. Good luck!
