playing Powerball is easy
There are forty balls numbered 1 to 40 from which six winning numbers are randomly selected. A seventh ball, the "Powerball", is then drawn from a separate machine containing another twenty balls numbered 1 to 20. There are lots of easy ways to play Powerball and plenty of Powerball play options including QuickPicks, Favourites and System entries.
