RI Powerball Rhode Island Powerball

The Rhode Island Lottery is 1 of 47 US State Lotteries & District Lotteries that offer the Powerball game – in this case the RI Powerball – as part of its overall portfolio of lottery games.

Powerball is a Multi-State USA Lottery that is run by the Multi State Lottery Association – MUSLand is one of the largest lottery games in the world having produced a record jackpot of US$ 1.58 BILLION in January 2016. This incredible amount is the biggest lottery jackpot ever won so far in the history of world jackpot lottery games and smashed the existing record produced in March 2012 by Mega Millions of US$ 656 MILLION.

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 Rhode Island Powerball began operations on April 22nd 1992 when the Powerball game was initially launched – as the Rhode Island Lottery was already a member of the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL) – having been a founder member joining on September 16th 1987.

Rhode Island Lottery Powerball – How it Works

The Rhode Island Lottery 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 Rhode Island Lottery Powerball game from 2 separate drawing machines – firstly 5 numbers from 59 white balls are drawn and then 1 number (the Powerball) from 35 red balls.

Draws for the Rhode Island Lottery Powerball 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 Rhode Island Powerball a chance to increase their winnings on all levels of the prize structure apart from the Rhode Island Lottery Powerball jackpot itself.

By playing using 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.

For example – a Rhode Island Powerball non-jackpot 2nd prize of US$ 1 Million will be immediately doubled to US$ 2 Million when playing the Rhode Island Powerball using this Powerball POWERPLAY facility.
