Play Powerball: How to win and how it works
Those who take lotteries seriously and want to win should ask themselves how to go about playing Powerball and how to win. The first step is of course to choose a number, a ticket costs only EUR 3.5 and it is up to everyone if you want to choose numbers yourself or make use of the speed dial.
When you buy your ticket you will see 5 different tickets, these have a total of 69 numbers. A little further down you will notice a Powerball line that has 26 numbers, where you select only one. You can also use the same number during 10 draws by simply clicking in that you pay with a card and pay EUR 3.5 for each draw.
The draws take place every week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Make sure you put your lines in time so you don't miss the draw. The presenter will draw 5 white balls from the 69 ball lottery drum plus one red ball from another 26 red ball drum. If the numbers on these balls match your numbers, you have won the Powerball jackpot! If you match five white balls you get what is called "Match-five" which means you win about EUR 0.8 million. If you were to match less than five numbers you don't have to worry, there are prices anyway!
Match 5 main numbers + Power Ball = Jackpot
Match 5 main numbers = About EUR 0.8 million
Match 4 main numbers + Power Ball = About EUR 40,000

How much can I really win?
How much you can win depends on how many numbers you match by the ones drawn. If you manage to match the 5 numbers drawn from the lottery drum and Power Ball, you win the jackpot! If you only match 5 numbers, there is nothing to be sorry about, in which case you win about EUR 0.83 million.
When the draw has been, what do I do if I win?
The Powerball draws take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 04.59 Swedish time in Tallahassee, Fla. The only thing you need to keep in mind is have bought your ticket before the draw starts. All winnings under EUR 500 will go to your account immediately. Profits over this sum require some documents.
Do I have to play Powerball from a specific place?
There is no special place where you "should" play Powerball. With the help of the internet you also do not have to buy your ticket in an existing store. You can easily sit at home on your couch and register online to add your lines. It doesn't matter where you are, only you have internet connection, you can buy a ticket online.
How do I know that I am not contacted by any scammer / scam and if I have won for real?
The first question you have to ask yourself is whether you have played or not. If you have not purchased a ticket, you cannot expect to win. A call or text message indicating that you have won something can definitely be a fraud. The lottery does not spend free money on Facebook or similar sites. Bluffers often state Powerball and ask you to pay a fee to complete the transfer, or they ask you for personal information to "confirm" that it is really you who won the lottery. This is to steal your identity and make other purchases in your name. Fraudsters also ask if you can pay the fees you pay them. Powerball usually gives you the profits minus the taxes you pay.

Could there be any information I forget to ask about?
You may wonder what happens if you lose your ticket. If you have put your signature on the back, you have not lost everything but it is not you who finds the ticket, it is the person who gets the prize. However, when playing Powerball online, the tickets are electronic, which means that players cannot lose their tickets. If you are not so familiar with the lottery world, you have probably wondered on one or more occasions what happens when a lottery like Powerball has no downloaded jackpot. The money is then paid back to the contributing states in proportion to the amount each state contributed.
