Powerball Powers Up With Power Play 10X Promotion
Missouri Powerball players who use Power Play will have the chance to multiply their winnings up to 10 times during the Power Play 10X promotion, which runs from March 4 through March 29. This means players who win the second-level $200,000 prize could win $2 million, and the third-level prize could go from $10,000 to $100,000!
Here’s how it works: for an extra $1 per play, Powerball?s Power Play feature offers the chance to multiply prizes from $3 to $200,000 by two, three, four or five times their normal value. After each Wednesday and Saturday Powerball drawing, a wheel is spun to select that draw’s Power Play number. The wheel has 16 spaces that are labeled as follows: 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5.
During the promotion, one of the "5s" will be removed from the Power Play wheel and replaced with the number "10." This allows players the chance to multiply the prize 10 times its normal value during the promotion, whenever the "10" is selected as the Power Play number.
"It is guaranteed that the ’10’ will come up at least once during the promotion," said Scott White, on-line product manager for the Missouri Lottery. "If it doesn’t happen by the time the promotion ends on March 29, the promotion will continue until the ’10’ is drawn."
