The draw takes place each Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 pm Eastern Standard Time. Unlike other lottery games, the draw is usually a combination of a cash game and a jackpot game.

In the PowerBall draw, the operators draw five white balls form a small drum containing 59 balls, each bearing a number within the range of 1 and 59. They then draw another number from a drum containing 39 balls each featuring a number between 1 and 39. If the machine picks a number that matches all the 6 numbers on your PowerBall ticket, then you will win the jackpot prize. If no person wins, PowerBall adds the jackpot amount to the next draw. Any player who matches 3, 4 or 5 numbers will win a prize.

The game is played in 44 states and it has given out the largest Jackpots consistently in the history of the United States lotteries. In February 2006, eight employees from the Nebraska Meat plant won the largest PowerBall jackpot ever amounting to $365,000,000. You can buy PowerBall tickets online in Canada easily.

After matching the six numbers, you will win the jackpot. Players who match 2, 3, 4, 5 numbers win handsome prizes. On March 2007, a New Jersey couple won $390 million.
