Powerball® PowerPlay® 10X® Promotion Continues Until "10" Multiplier is Drawn!
6/2/2010 1:52:28 PM

COLUMBIA, SC (June 2, 2010) – For the first time since the Powerball® PowerPlay® 10X® Promotion began in March 2006, no “10” multiplier was drawn in the month of May.
“This is the first time it’s happened during our 10X® promotion,” said Charles Strutt, Executive Director of the Multi-State Lottery Association which oversees Powerball®. “The 10X® has always been drawn once or twice during past promos. The “10” multiplier will remain in the game until it is drawn,” he added.
The Powerball® PowerPlay® 10X® Promotion offers players the chance to multiply their non-jackpot winnings from 2 times up to 10 times. A “10” multiplier replaced one of the four “5” PowerPlay® numbers beginning with the Saturday, May 1, 2010 Powerball® drawing. Players who purchase a Powerball® ticket with the PowerPlay® option will have the chance to multiply their non-jackpot winnings up to 10 times, resulting in prizes from $30 up to $2 million when the “10” multiplier is drawn.
PowerPlay® costs an additional $1 per play, per drawing. The Powerball® PowerPlay® 10X® promotion originally was scheduled from May 1 through May 29. But since the “10” multiplier was not randomly selected during the month of May, the promotion will continue until the “10” multiplier is selected.
Powerball® drawings are held each Wednesday and Saturday evenings at 10:59.
