# Does 1 number plus Powerball win anything?

Contents

## What do you win with 1 number and the Powerball?

If you only matched one white number on the Powerball, you did NOT win any money. If you only matched one number and it was the red Powerball Number itself, then you’ll win \$4.

## How much is one number plus the Powerball?

1 number plus the Powerball – still \$4

If you choose one correct number plus the Powerball you’ll bring home \$4 again. The odds more than double to a 1 in 91 chance.

## How many numbers do you need to win something on Powerball?

According to the official Powerball website, anyone who matches three or more numbers, or just the Powerball, walks away with a prize. Match at least one number and the Powerball, and you’re a winner.

## Do you win money if you have \$4 numbers in Powerball?

If you match a white ball and the red Powerball, then you’ll walk away with \$4, which is the same amount you win if you match just one red ball (so that extra white ball you matched doesn’t really count for anything.)

## Are 2 numbers worth anything in Mega Millions?

Yes, if you match two Mega Millions numbers during the drawing, this means that you will walk away with some money, but you won’t win the jackpot. However, you will only win some money if you matched a yellow ball and a white ball. Matching two white balls won’t get you any winnings.
