Do you buy your tickets for multiple drawings at a time? Some players may enjoy buying up to 14 or 15 drawings on a single ticket so they don't have to worry about getting their numbers in before every draw. You can do that for any Missouri Lottery Draw Game; however, the number of advance drawings you can purchase for Powerball are now decreasing.
You've probably heard that changes are coming to Powerball. A new matrix and prize chart bebuts on Jan. 15, supported by a raise in price to $2 a play. At that time, all match five winners will win $1 million, and players who add Power Play will have the chance to win $2 million. It will create more winners and bigger jackpots.
Because changes are coming to the game, we've started limiting the number of advance plays you can purchase. The most you can play right now, for instance, is 10 draws. After Dec. 14, it will be five. That's the "stepdown." You'll only be able to buy as many drawings that remain until the game change. After Jan. 15, you'll once again be able to purchase 15 drawings at a time.
