Powerball® Double Play® starts February 5

Nebraska Powerball Power Play Double Play logo

Something big is coming to Nebraska Powerball in 2023: Double Play.

Adding Double Play to your Powerball purchase for an additional $1 per play gives you another chance to match your Powerball numbers for prizes up to $10 million.

If you have a Powerball ticket with Double Play, you play the same set of numbers for the main Powerball drawing and the Double Play drawing. Double Play drawings are held between 10:30 and 10:40 p.m. CT on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday nights.

The price of a regular Powerball play will stay at $2 and the odds of winning remain the same. Additionally, the Power Play® feature will continue at $1 per play. Tickets can be purchased with Power Play and Double Play for $4 per play. However, the Power Play multiplier will not apply to Double Play prizes.

Old Powerball play slips will no longer work after February 5, 2023, so make sure to pick up new play slips at a Nebraska Lottery retailer. The Play It Again feature will continue, and any Powerball ticket can be replayed with Play It Again.

Double Play was launched in August 2021 and is currently available for purchase in 14 lottery jurisdictions. See powerball.com for more information.

Double Play Example

Let’s say you purchase one Powerball play with Power Play and Double Play for $4. Your ticket numbers are 06, 10, 24, 33, 67 Powerball: 11.

The Powerball numbers drawn were 13, 20, 31, 33, 59 Powerball: 11 Power Play: 3X. Your ticket matched one white ball number (33) and the Powerball number (11) for $4, then was multiplied by the 3X Power Play multiplier for a total of $12.

The Double Play numbers drawn were 09, 10, 20, 24, 33 Powerball: 19. Your ticket matched three white ball numbers (10, 24, 33) for a $20 Double Play prize.

When your ticket is cashed, you will be paid a total of $32.
