Prizes and Odds of Winning
According to Powerball.net there are nine ways to win a prize, from matching six numbers to win the jackpot down to just matching the red Powerball. All prizes other than the jackpot are fixed cash amounts.
Jackpot winners have two options to receive their prize: annuity or cash payment.
The annuity is the full advertised jackpot amount, paid as 30 instalments over 29 years (one payment is made immediately). Each payment is 5 percent larger than the prior one. The advertised jackpot reflects the value of the prize pool's investment.
Most winners choose the cash option, a one-time lump sum payment of the amount in the prize pool, which is lower than the advertised jackpot value.
The table below shows the prize payouts and odds for each prize level.

MN Powerball History
The origins of Powerball date back to September 1987, when five states and Washington, D.C. formed the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL). The Association launched Lotto*America in 1998, which became Powerball in 1992. Minnesota joined the MUSL in 1990.
On March 7, 2001, Power Play was born. The exciting add-on multiplies non-jackpot prizes for an extra $1.
2010 was a milestone year for Powerball - a cross-selling agreement was reached with Mega Millions, so state lotteries no longer had to choose between offering one game of the other. Finally, players could buy Powerball and Mega Millions tickets in the same jurisdiction.
In October 2015, Powerball got an update - the main numbers increased from 59 to 69, and the Powerball pool dropped from 35 to 26. This made it easier to win a prize, but also decreased the chances of hitting the top prize. The change led to a string of standout record-breaking jackpots.
The biggest lottery jackpot of all time worldwide was a $1.58 billion Powerball prize won on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 and split three ways. John and Lisa Robinson of Munford, Tennessee came forward first, followed by David Kaltschmidt and Maureen Smith from Melbourne Beach, Florida. Six months passed before Chino Hills, California couple Marvin and Mae Acosta claimed their share of the incredible prize. The lucky winners all chose the cash option, sharing $983.5 million!
Mississippi is the latest of the 48 U.S. jurisdictions to offer Powerball - the lottery was a hit, with residents lining up around the block to buy tickets on the first day of sales, January 30, 2020.
