Powerball jackpots begin at $20 million, and other rewards pay from $1 million to $2 million with a Power Play. Like Powerball, the jackpot is reset at $20 million after a prize is won, and one line of numbers is $2, with a $1 option to multiply their profits with a Megaplier.

The Mega Millions prize is now at $970 million, the second-highest in that game’s history.
