The Powerball Product Group anticipates adding the Monday drawing will result in larger, faster-growing jackpots. Adding the third drawing will not change the Powerball game odds or set cash prizes.

All 48 U.S. lotteries will sell tickets for the Powerball drawing on Monday nights.

Powerball tickets are $2 per play.

Right now the estimated jackpot for this Saturday's Powerball drawing is $226 million.
