All member lotteries help contribute a percentage of the sales to a top-prize pool which allows the jackpot to grow higher and higher. To start with, the jackpot is $40 million. This is known to be the largest jackpot in any lottery game. There are 9 different levels of prizes and there are also lower-tier prizes that can range from $4 to as high as $1 million. With the Power Play prizes can be as high as $2 million.
This is a game that is played in a number of other states and as with other games that are offered by the Florida Lottery, the Florida Powerball profits are transferred to the Trust Fund to help benefit the state's education.
