Washington Welcomes New $2 Powerball!

OLYMPIA, Wash. - Out with the old, and in with the new! This New Year, Washington's Lottery will begin offering the new $2 Powerball® game on Sunday, January 15, 2012, taking the place of the current $1 Powerball® game.

Powerball® is receiving a makeover across the nation.  Washington's Lottery wants to make sure players in our state understand the changes taking place.

The overall odds of winning a prize will improve in the new Powerball® game, moving to 1 in 31.8 from 1 in 35.1. With the new $2 play, Powerball® will have starting jackpots of $40 million versus todays $20 million.

"Since 2010 Powerball® has offered Washingtonians the kind of jackpots that could be completely life-changing. You can only imagine how excited we are to continue to do this through the new $2 Powerball® game – except with bigger prizes, now players can imagine bigger." said Washington's Lottery Deputy Director Jim Warick. 

The new Powerball® game will still offer players nine ways to win prizes, with its second tier prize moving up to $1 million in cash from the current $200,000, and the lowest tiered prize (for those who match just the Powerball) being elevated to $4 from the previous $3.
