SC Educational Lottery PowerPlay multipliers game returns

Posted: Updated:

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Starting Wednesday night, the Powerball will be returning the game's Power Play multipliers. This means that players who spend the extra $1 for PowerPlay will see non-jackpot prizes, which will exclude the match 5 prize, multiplied by 2,3,4,5 depending upon the multiplier number that is selected.

Instead of winning a $200 prize with PowerPlay, Players will now get a chance to win up to $500.

Powerball® is reversing the decision, and now instead of winning a $200 prize with PowerPlay®, players could win up to $500. A $50,000 prize is possible for PowerPlay® players matching four white ball numbers and the red Powerball® when a "5" multiplier is selected, an increase of $10,000. An automatic $2 million prize for matching five white ball numbers with the purchase of PowerPlay®, regardless of the PowerPlay® number selected, remains unchanged. — According to an SC Educational Lottery Press Release.

Lottery Executive Director Paula Harper Bethea states: "Powerball® is incredibly responsive to its players, and felt restoring PowerPlay® to its original form was good for players and the game. South Carolina has a strong PowerPlay® following, and I anticipate our players will be pleased with new product."
