Tell us if you're a first-timer, religious player, or part of an office pool and share your number-picking strategy.

Powerball® is a combined large jackpot game and a cash game. Every Wednesday and Saturday night at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Time, we draw five white balls out of a drum with 59 balls and one red ball out of a drum with 35 red balls. Draw sales cut off at least 59 minutes before the draw. Check for local cut-off time.

The current jackpot also has a cash value option of $94.2 million.

Players win by matching one of the 9 Ways to Win. The jackpot (won by matching all five white balls in any order and the red Powerball) is either an annuitized prize paid out over 29 years (30 payments) or a lump sum payment. Each ticket costs $2. If the winner chooses the annuity, the annual payment will be increased each year by the percentage set out in the Powerball game rules.

The second prize (won by matching five white balls in any order) is $1,000,000 paid in cash and any time you match the red Powerball, you win. The overall odds of winning a prize in the game are approximately 1 in 32.

Power Play® is a special feature that allows a winner to increase the original prize amount. Powerball players winning any prize other than the jackpot will win a larger cash prize. The Match 5+0 prize with Power Play option is now worth $2,000,000. Note that any set prizes or Power Play prizes, including the Match 5+0 prize, may be reduced if wins exceed the available prize fund. The Power Play option costs $1 and must be selected when you buy your Powerball ticket.

Scoring a big lottery jackpot like that would have me set for the rest of my life! The very first thing I would do is find a good financial advisor to help me develop a plan that will make that money grow and help my family out for generations... Instead of blowing through it all in a few months like some winners do! I'm following this system I found online (simply titled "Lottery Method"; here's a review if you're interested: http://gamblingsystemreviews.net/lottery-method/ ) It's true that the lottery is mostly a game of chance, but this ebook tells you which numbers have historically had the most success, which ones rarely come up, and mistakes people make when choosing their numbers. I'm quite certain my chances are increased now that I know these tactics.
