In all states except California, you can opt to use the Power Play option for a small additional fee, which will increase the prize payout for any win apart from the jackpot. This option increases all non-jackpot winnings by a multiple of 2, 3, 4 or 5 (or possibly 10 when the estimated jackpot is less than $150 million) depending on which Power Play number is drawn. Match 5 winnings are always doubled to $2 million with the Power Play option, no matter which Power Play number is drawn.
