There's still time to play for your chance at the Powerball winning numbers. If you need a ticket, stop by the official Powerball website and see where your closest store is that sells Powerball tickets. Powerball tickets cost $2, which is a meager investment for the chance to win a $900 million jackpot. Some regions allow for online ticket purchases, while others don't. These decisions are made by state law and are not governed by federal rulings. If you need to check with your local state laws regarding Powerball tickets, the jackpot, and how to collect winnings should you match all six winning numbers, visit the Powerball multi-state lottery association list of websites for each state.
