Minnesota, South Dakota, and Iowa were part of the original 15 states to introduce Powerball. Today, all but five states in the country offer the lottery; Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah.

There are Powerball drawings on three nights a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. In addition, a new add-on feature called Double Play® was launched that gives players in select jurisdictions another chance to match their Powerball numbers in a separate drawing with a top cash prize of $10 million.

Not everyone plays the lottery. But those who do have pretty much the same odds as everyone else.
