Power Ball Rules Powerball Lottery

As the Powerball is such a huge lottery and has such a vast base of players right across the United States and the rest of the world – we thought it useful to include a section here on the more basic and important of the numerous Powerball Rules that apply when you play Play Powerball online or offline.

Naturally it would be beyond the scope of this website to cover every single rule that applies to the Powerball Lottery – for an exhaustive list of Power Ball Rules you will need to visit the official Powerball website for the State or country that you reside in or intend to buy lottery tickets from.

Having said that, we think it important that we should look at least look at the most fundamental Powerball rules here and provide a broad understanding of the Powerball Lotto game and the things that you really DO need to be aware of when you buy Powerball tickets and Play Powerball.

Powerball Rules Powerball Tickets

It is obvious of course, that when we play Powerball that our overriding aim is to win the lottery and preferably be lucky enough achieve a big Powerball win.

Just think what an awful situation it would be if we were to correctly select those Powerball winning numbers one day only to find that were not able to claim our Powerball Prize because we were claiming the prize in a different State or country to where we actually purchased our Powerball tickets.

One of the basic Power Ball rules when playing is that you DO need to claim your Powerball prize in the same State or country to where you bought your Powerball tickets. This is an important point to note when you play Power Ball.

Therefore if, for example, you are away on vacation or on business in a different State when you purchase your Powerball tickets – you will need to check your own Powerball numbers against the Powerball Results in the State that you bought the ticket. Do this BEFORE you return home to your own State and if you are a Powerball winner – claim your Powerball prize in the State that you bought your Powerball Tickets in.

It would be a big shock to have successfully picked the winning Powerball Numbers and miss out on what could potentially be a really huge Powerball Jackpot win simply by not being aware of what is one of the more basic of Powerball rules.

This is one of the Powerball rules that needs to be in place due to the fact that the Powerball Lotto is not particular to any one State but is played right across 47 States and Jurisdictions in the USA and each of those States has its own pool of money to draw from should the Power Ball jackpot or any of the many other Powerball Lotto prizes be won within its boundaries.

It is important to note that this particular Powerball lottery rule will not affect you if you buy lottery tickets online either within the USA or from anywhere around the world. If you play Powerball online your lottery ticket sales company will take care of all ticket purchasing and payments if you are a Power Ball winner.

Powerball Rules Powerball Prizes

This is another one of the most fundamental Powerball rules that we believe is so important to be aware of that we felt it needed to be included in this section.

Basically when you buy lottery tickets for the USA LotteryPowerball – keep them in as safe a place as possible because if you lose them your Powerball prize can be claimed by somebody else!

The operators of the Powerball Lotto can accept no responsibility should you mislay your Powerball tickets – this is much the same all over the world with the hundreds of different national lottery operators.

If you should Buy Powerball Tickets and then lose them, it is perfectly legal for someone ELSE to claim what should be YOUR Powerball prize if they subsequently find your lost Powerball lotto ticket and hand it in.

The very simple way you can give yourself some protection here is to sign the back of your Powerball tickets.

Under the Power Ball rules – a Powerball lotto ticket is a “bearer instrument” and that anybody who has possession of the ticket can make a claim unless the lottery ticket is signed.

Therefore it is the person who actually hands in the lottery ticket who is entitled to claim whatever Powerball Prize is due and it is the ticket holder who is deemed to be the lawful owner – not necessarily the person who actually purchased the Powerball tickets.

So losing your Powerball tickets could mean that you may actually miss out quite easily on some huge Power Ball jackpot prize that should rightfully be yours just because someone else has been lucky enough to find the Powerball lotto ticket that you have mislaid.

Powerball Rules Powerball Jackpot Rollover

One of the really great Powerball rules is that there is no limit to how many times the Powerball jackpot can rollover each time that it is not won.

This one rule means that very frequently the Power Ball jackpot reaches such incredibly high levels that the whole of the lottery playing world is watching it draw after draw.

Explained simply – each time that the Powerball Jackpot is not won the prize fund is added on to the lottery jackpot prize fund for the following draw and so on until there is a Powerball winner of the jackpot prize.

So it is not at all uncommon to see regular Powerball jackpot prizes in the US$ 100 Million to US$ 200 Million range and even up in the US$ 300 Million to US$ 400 Million range – even occasionally between US$ 500 Million and US$ 600 Million.

The overall Powerball record jackpot to date being an incredible US$ 1.586 BILLION that was won on January 13th 2016.

Powerball Rules Annuity or Cash Lump Sum?

If you find yourself to be one of the lucky Powerball winners of a jackpot prize you will be able to claim your prize in one of two ways…

1. An annuity payment payable over a 30 year period.

2. A cash lump sum.

The time at which you have to make the choice between taking your Powerball jackpot prize as either a cash payment or an annuity depends upon which State you are claiming your Powerball prize in – full details on this are listed below.

Other aspects of claiming a Powerball jackpot prize also vary slightly from State to State. If you have a look at the table below you will see the individual criteria for claiming Powerball prizes for each of the US State Lottery companies.

Many lottery players across the USA and the rest of the world like to Play Powerball as part of a group or as part of their own Power Ball syndicate.

It is perfectly ok for a group of people to share a Powerball prize according to the Powerball rules and they can share the cost and decide on how they wish to share the prize when they make their winning claim.

Once again the rules vary on this slightly from State to State across the 47 USA Powerball States & Jurisdictions and it is always wise to check with the particular State Lottery where the Powerball tickets were purchased to find out their criteria for claiming Powerball prizes as a group.

For example the Multi State Lottery Association MUSL – is able to handle requests relating to the division of Powerball prize payments for Power Ball syndicate members including whether the member wishes to be paid by cash or annuity.
