 Powerball PA – PA Powerball Lottery

The PA Lottery is 1 of 47 separate US State Lotteries & District Lotteries that offer the Powerball game – in this case the Pennsylvania Powerball – as part of its portfolio of lottery games.

Powerball is a Multi-State USA Lottery that is run by the Multi State Lottery Association – MUSL and is one of the largest lottery games in the world having produced a record jackpot in January 2016 of an incredible US$ 1.58 BILLION. This is the largest jackpot ever won to date in the history of world jackpot lottery games and easily beat the previous Mega Millions record of US$ 656 MILLION paid out in March 2012.

The very first Powerball draw took place on April 22nd 1992 with 16 USA Lottery companies – who were all members of the MUSL – taking part when the game changed its format and name from Lotto America which had started on February 13th 1988.

The Pennsylvania Lottery became the 30th member to join the MUSL – Multi State Lottery Association – who run & syndicate the game across the USA – on 18th December 2001 and began selling Pennsylvania Powerball tickets on June 29th 2002.

PA Lottery Powerball – How it Works

The Pennsylvania Powerball works in the same way as the Powerball game works in all the States and Districts in the US that offer the game.

Jackpots start off at US$ 40 Million and ROLLOVER after each draw when the top prize is not won – increasing in size by at least US$ 10 Million each time making for some huge jackpot figures.

6 numbers are drawn in total for the PA Lottery Powerball game from 2 separate drawing machines – firstly 5 numbers are drawn from 59 white balls and then 1 number (the Powerball) is drawn from 35 red balls.

Draws for the Powerball PA take place twice every week on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10.59pm EST.

There is also a Powerball prize multiplier facility available when playing that dramatically increases the size of a Powerball win and is called Powerball POWERPLAY...


The Powerball POWERPLAY option is a fixed prize multiplier and will automatically increase the Powerball win to at least double the original amount – and is there to give players of the Pennsylvania Powerball a chance to increase their winnings on all levels of the prize structure apart from the PA Lottery Powerball jackpot itself.

Playing with the Powerball POWER PLAY option – you are able to multiply your winnings on these levels by 2x, 3x or 4x – greatly increasing the amount you will walk away with.

A Powerball non-jackpot 2nd prize of US$ 1 Million, for example, will be immediately doubled to US$ 2 Million when playing the PA Powerball using this Powerball POWERPLAY facility.
