VA Powerball Powerball VA

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

Powerball is a Multi-State USA Lottery that is run & syndicated across the USA by the MUSL – Multi State Lottery Association – and is one of the largest lottery games in the world having produced a record jackpot of an incredible US$ 1.58 BILLION in January 2016. This huge amount is the largest lottery jackpot ever to be won so far in the history of jackpot lottery games and – completely overshadowing the huge US$ 656 MILLION Mega Millions record jackpot which was created back 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 after the game changed its format and name from Lotto America which had originally started on February 13th 1988.

Tickets for the VA Powerball were first put on sale back on January 31st 2010 when the Mega Millions consortium – of which the VA Lottery is a member – entered into a cross-selling agreement with the MUSL – allowing the sales of Powerball in Mega Millions states and Mega Millions in Powerball states.

Virginia Lottery Powerball – How it Works

The Virginia 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 enormous jackpot figures.

6 numbers are drawn in total for the Virginia Lottery Powerball 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 VA 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 Powerball VA a chance to increase their winnings on all levels of the prize structure apart from the Powerball Virginia jackpot itself.

With the Powerball POWER PLAY option – you are easily 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 Virginia Lottery Powerball using this Powerball POWERPLAY facility.
