Rhode Island was one of the founding members of the Multi-State Lottery Association which established the Lotto America game in 1987. This multi-state game became Powerball® in 1992.
Powerball® Power Play® has become one of the most popular Lottery games due to its extremely high jackpots. The highest jackpot amount to date was $1.5 Billion on January 13, 2016, with winning tickets sold in Florida, Tennessee, and California.
Jackpots start at $40 million, and continue to increase by no less than $10 million per drawing until someone wins. Also, players can increase their chances of becoming a multi-millionaire by playing Power Play®. Power Play® increases all non-jackpot prizes. See prize table below. The $1,000,000 prize for matching 5/5 white balls will increase to $2,000,000 when you purchase Power Play®!
Drawings are at 10:59pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays and aired locally on WPRI-TV 12.
Powerball® Power Play® tickets may be purchased at any time, but only until 9:50pm on drawing nights. Search Winning Numbers and Results
