What Exactly Is the Powerball Multiplier?
As noted, the Powerball multiplier can increase your secondary winnings (but not the jackpot!). The multiplier is selected randomly at each draw. It can be 2x 3x 4x or 5x. If the jackpot is less than $150 million, the multiplier could also be 10x. Here’s how you win with the multiplier: If you select the Power Play multiplier and correctly match the five main numbers, your second place prize will rise from $1 million to $2 million. All the other secondary prizes will increase based on the multiplier selected for that draw. For example, if the multiplier is 3x, the $7 prize would increase to $21.
