Current through Register Vol. 51, No. 40, October 2, 2021

(a) Powerball is a five out of 49 plus one out of 42 on-line lottery game which pays the grand prize on an annuitized, parimutuel basis. Except as provided in this chapter, all other prizes are paid on a set cash basis.
(b) The purpose of the Powerball game is to determine winners from ticket holders matching five numbers from 1 through 49, and matching the separately drawn Powerball number, or a designated combination thereof, within a single play, with the five winning numbers and the Powerball number to be randomly drawn. Drawings will be conducted twice a week or as publicly announced by the Secretary.
(c) The object of the game is for a player to select, in a single play on a ticket, five numbers and the Powerball number that match the numbers and the Powerball number drawn for the game in which the ticket is participating. Correctly matching the six winning numbers consisting of the five numbers drawn plus the Powerball number drawn, and meeting other validation criteria, entitles the ticket holder to the grand prize identified in § 871.8 (relating to expected prize payout percentages).
