There are nine different ways to win Powerball prizes in every draw, based on how many numbers you match. You can win $4 just for matching the Powerball, while the jackpot is won by matching all five main numbers plus the Powerball. The top prize starts at $20 million (*During the Coronavirus pandemic, the starting jackpot may be lower than this) and increases every time it is not won.
If there are multiple winners of the jackpot, it will be shared equally between them. The eight prizes below the jackpot are fixed amounts, so for these prizes there is a guaranteed payout regardless of how many winning players there are. Go to the Powerball Numbers page to see the latest prize payouts.
The Powerball payout chart below shows how many numbers you need to match to win the different prizes and the odds of winning each. You can also see statistics about past winners in each division.

For a small additional fee, you can opt to use the Power Play option which will increase the prize payout for any non-jackpot win 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. This option is available in all participating states and jurisdictions except California, where prizes must be pari-mutuel according to state law.
Here are the expected payouts for Power Play prizes:
