How TALL

is $40 Million?

Powerball’s starting jackpot of $40 million may not seem like much, but ask yourself this – is $40 million really a small amount of money? Is the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. a small building?

If you were to stack $100 bills, take a look at the heights the money would reach at each estimated jackpot amount.

Players Insights
Odds are you don’t know this…

Did you know your odds of winning a prize are the same in every Powerball drawing? 

You have a 1 in 24.9 chance of winning a prize when the advertised jackpot is $40 million.

You still have a 1 in 24.9 chance of winning a prize when the advertised jackpot is $1 billion.

Even if there are more tickets sold in a particular drawing, your odds of winning a prize are the same.

Dollars & Sense
Value of the Annuity

Jackpot winners can either select their prize as an annuity or a lump-sum payment.

If the annuity option is selected, the winner is guaranteed to receive 30 graduated payments over 29 years.

The annual payments increase by 5% until the 30th and final payment.

The 30 payments added up equal the value of the annuity.
