Powerball is an American lottery game available in 45 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. A nonprofit organization made up of US corporations and lobbyists, the Multistate Lottery Association (MUSL), coordinates the program. Since its inception on April 19, 1992, Powerball drawings have been held twice a week (Wednesday and Saturday); a third drawing (held Mondays) was added on August 23, 2021. The drawings are held every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Time at Universal Studios in Orlando, with Sam Arlen, Michelle Liles, and Laura Johnson hosting. Audits of the drawings are performed by Carol and Company.

As of October 7, 2015, the game uses a 5/69 (white balls) + 1/26 (Powerballs) matrix to draw winning numbers, giving a 1 in 292,201,338 chance of winning the jackpot per play.[2] Plays cost $2 or $3 with the Power Play option (originally, Powerball plays cost $1; now, such games cost $2.). The cutoff time for ticket sales is 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time; some lotteries end sales earlier. The drawings are held at the Florida Lottery’s studio in Tallahassee[4]. Powerball’s minimum advertised jackpot is $20 million (annuity); Powerball’s annuity is paid in 30 graduated instalments or lump sums are available. A lump-sum payment will be less than the total of 30 annual payments due to the time value of money and also because one check for a much higher sum will be taxed at a much higher rate than 30 checks each for a much lower sum.
