  • Select the "Annuity" option, and receive your jackpot prize in 30 payments over 29 years. Pick the "Cash Lump Sum" payout, and you will receive your prize in a one-time payment. If you do not make a choice, you will automatically receive the "Annuity" payout option.

HOW LATE CAN I BUY A TICKET?
Lottery retailers are expected to make tickets available to customers during their hours of operation. Powerball sales close at 11:00pm on non-drawing days. On drawing days, sales close at 10:00pm.

Lottery terminals can be activated for sales after the drawing numbers have been validated and made official into the on-line system. Between the hours of 11:00pm and 6:00am each night (later on Powerball nights), all lottery terminals are "taken down" for reporting purposes. During those hours, lottery tickets cannot be issued and Lottery tickets cannot be sold.
CAN I BUY POWERBALL TICKETS ONLINE OR BY MAIL?
No. Federal legislation prohibits lotteries from selling tickets by mail or on the Internet. Click here to learn how to protect yourself from scams.
