How to Purchase Tickets and Play

How to Purchase a Ticket

Find an Arizona Lottery retailer. Powerball tickets cost $2 per game and are available for purchase at the counter of Arizona Lottery Retailers and at Arizona Lottery vending machines. Tickets cannot be purchased online.

How to Choose Your Numbers

There are three ways to choose your numbers.

To let the computer select the numbers for you, choose a Quick Pick on the vending machine or tell the cashier you want a Quick Pick at the time of your purchase.

To choose your own numbers, fill out a selection slip or tell the cashier which six numbers you would like to select:

  • 5 white numbers (1 – 69)
  • 1 Powerball number (1 – 26)

You can also choose your own numbers for just the white numbers or just the red Powerball number, and use Quick Pick for the other number(s).

Multiply Your Winnings

When purchasing a ticket, you can add on Power Play for just an additional $1 per game to multiply your winnings*** by 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10**** times. Tell the cashier at the time of your purchase or mark it on your selection slip. Just before the Powerball drawing, a Power Play number will be selected, and your winnings will be multiplied by that amount!
