How to Play Georgia Powerball
When it comes to Georgia Powerball, the rules are plain and simple â€” match all five white balls and the red Powerball to hit the jackpot. To do so, you need to buy tickets and participate in the draw, which can be done physically or online.
First, letâ€™s see what playing Powerball in a GA Lottery retail parlor looks like:
 Visit a GA Lottery store and purchase a Powerball payslip.Â
 Pick five white ball numbers ranging from 1 to 69, and a red Powerball from 1 to 26.
 Choose a number of plays youâ€™d like to participate in. The maximum is five, and each one costs $2.
 Select the number of consecutive drawings to partake in. You can choose up to 26 drawings and play them with the same numbers each time.
 The Powerball payslip allows you to use the Power Play feature and multiply the nonjackpot winnings 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, or 10x.
 After completing the payslip, sign your name on the back and secure it.
 Follow the live results on the GA Lottery app or on the official website.
However, if youâ€™re planning on playing online, here are the steps to follow:
 Choose the number of tickets to purchase and then select the number of times you want to play with each ticket.
 Pick five numbers from 1 to 69 and add one red Powerball number by choosing from 1 to 26. The Quick Pick feature can generate random numbers and help you complete the payslip.
 You can choose the Power Play feature and boost the nonjackpot prizes even while playing online.
 Once you've completed your tickets, review their details and confirm the purchase.
 The tickets will enter the next draw. If you win less than $600, the money will be transferred directly into your account.
GA Powerball Drawing Schedule
The Georgia Lottery organizes Powerball drawings every Wednesday and Saturday at 11 PM EST. If you want to participate, you can buy the ticket up until 10 PM on the night of the draw.
Georgia Powerball Payouts, Prize Amounts, and Rules
As mentioned, Powerball has simple rules, like any other lottery game. Just pick five numbers from 1 to 69 for the white balls and one from 1 to 26 for the red Powerball.Â
To win the main prize, you need to match five white ball numbers and guess the Powerball. The drawings occur twice a week, and the main award continues to grow until someone hits the jackpot.Â
Those who match five white ball numbers but not the red one get a secondtier prize of $1,000,000. Additionally, the GA Powerball features seven other levels that also generate rewards. The table below demonstrates the odds, payouts, and rules of GA Powerball.
