Before you submit your Powerball ticket, review the additional ticket options and make sure all is set based on how you want to play your next Powerball game, how much you want to spend etc.

Draws: The Powerball draw takes place every Thursday and Sunday at 4:59 (CET). On your Powerball online ticket, you can easily select whether you want to participate in the Thursday or Sunday draw or both of the draws.

Duration: Another important setting on your Powerball ticket is the ticket duration, i.e. for how many of the upcoming weeks is your ticket valid. The default duration is 1 week. In that case, your ticket will be played exactly once on the selected draw day (Thursday or Sunday or both). Ticket duration can be set up to 8 weeks or you can set the ticket as Permanent.

Permanent: A Permanent ticket is a great option for Powerball online players who want to keep playing the same numbers every week, without having to touch anything further. Keep in mind, that a permanent ticket’s price will be charged automatically every week from your player’s account. If you run out of the funds on your player’s account, the ticket won’t be submitted until you top up your account.

Note: Selected draws and ticket duration influence the price of your ticket. Remember to always check your final price before submitting the ticket. The more weeks & draws you choose to participate, the higher the total price of your ticket. You can always see your final price in the Ticket summary section.
