The Odds of Winning Powerball

Of course you know that if you match all six numbers in Wednesday’s Powerball drawing you could win $1.5 billion! There’s a 1 in 292 million chance that the winning ticket could be yours, and it only takes one.

Did you know that matching the first five numbers gives you a $1,000,000 prize? There’s a 1 in 11 million chance you could! Matching four numbers plus the Powerball means a $50,000 prize. Odds, 1 in 913,129.

Despite what some may think, the odds of winning are always the same regardless of how many people are playing.

You have just as much a chance of winning a billion or a million as the next guy or gal, but you’ve got to play to win.  The  odds of winning are zero without a ticket.
