Powerball Plus game rules
To play PowerBall Plus, you can choose to go with the Quick Pick or choose your numbers manually. If you decide to go with the Quick Pick, the system will choose five random numbers on your behalf, from 1 to 45, as well as a lucky PowerBall number from 1 to 20.
If you choose to go manual, all you’ll need is a valid bet slip, which you can get any National Lottery outlet, and indicate in pen or pencil which five numbers you want for the main pick. You’ll then need to pick one extra number from one to 20. You’ll notice on the ticket a checkbox titled ‘PowerBall Plus’. Tick that checkbox. Both of these options will put you in line to win the PowerBall Plus jackpot.
Don’t forget to keep your receipt for the PowerBall Plus safe and fill in your details on the back. You will need to ensure that the ticket you buy is valid, so be sure to go only to approved retailers or mail subscription agents that you know are valid. If you do happen to win, the National Lottery commission will need to validate your ticket and you will need to submit that ticket within one calendar year of having purchased it.
You can buy and play as many boards as you’d like to and can even choose the multi-draw option. This will allow you to keep playing the same numbers over many different draws.
