The Power Play(R) Multiplier Returns to Powerball(R)

Players Will Be Given the Chance to Multiply Non-Jackpot Prizes Up to Five Times

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Jan 17, 2014) - Starting with the Jan. 22 Powerball draw, players will have the chance to multiply non-jackpot winning prizes up to five times with the return of the enhanced Powerball Power Play multiplier.

The enhanced Power Play option will remain $1 but, rather than a fixed prize, players will now have a chance to win prizes multiplied 2, 3, 4 or 5 times. Winning the Match 5 prize (all five white balls) with the Power Play option will pay $2 million, regardless of the multiplier number drawn.

"New and different ways to win will bring more excitement for our players," said Karen Bach, director of budget, products and communications for the Arizona Lottery. "We're expecting the return of the enhanced Power Play multiplier to be popular with our players, and we look forward to awarding even bigger prizes to Arizona Powerball winners in the coming months."
