Here’s $100.
Can you win $1.5 billion at Powerball?

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338. But someone has to win, right? We decided to put that idea to the test.

This game starts with $100 to play against multiple lottery drawings. Pick your numbers and watch the money disappear. Based on the odds, you're likely to hit numbers that pay out smaller prizes. This is for educational purposes only, we're not giving you any money. Oh, and good luck!

Winning Numbers





How does this work?

This simulator pits your numbers against randomly generated win numbers. While the large jackpot prize may be tempting, it's extremely hard to have that one ticket in 292 million.
