Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington D.C, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The odds of a ticket hitting the jackpot are 292,201,338 to 1. Players have roughly a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to win at least $1 million.

To play Powerball, you pick six numbers: five numbers between one and 69 for the white balls; and one number between one and 26 for the red Powerball. Selecting all of them correctly gets you the jackpot. You can also pay for the Power Play option, which multiples any winnings earned by two, three, four, five or 10 times the amount, depending on which number is drawn.

How can you increase your odds? You can buy more than one ticket, though you’d have to have purchase 292,201,338 to account for all of the numerical possibilities, which would cost more than winning the jackpot. You have much better odds of winning a small prize:

$1 million prize: Five matching numbers: 1 in 11,688,053.52
