Powerball payout is now up to $152 million for the next drawing. With no grand prize winner in Wednesday's draw, the top prize is now over $150 million. According to United Press International on Jan. 23, the popular Power Play option has returned.

...three players, (in California, New York and Indiana), matched all five winning numbers without matching the Powerball. Those three players walked away with $1 million each.

The Powerball Power Play multiplier costs an extra $1 per play. It allows all of the prizes other that the grand prize to pay out in multiples. For example, if you buy a Powerball ticket with the Power Play multiplier for a total of $3, all prizes other than the grand prize at least double.

If you match all five numbers but not the Powerball, you get $2 million instead of $1 million with the Power Play activated. All other lesser prizes will payout 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x depending on what the Power Play multiplier is for that draw.

A record Powerball payout was awarded in May to a single winner Florida as reported here, "Powerball winning ticket: $590.5 million record jackpot ticket sold in Florida."
