During what period of time does my ticket have to be purchased to be eligible to enter in the promotion?

To be eligible for entry in this promotion, Powerball tickets must have been purchased on Wednesday, Sept. 4 through 8:59 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 30, 2019. The purchase date on your ticket is in YYYYMMDD format and located just above the ticket price. This may be different than the ticket draw date, which is located in the center of the ticket just above the draw numbers.

If I've bought a Powerball ticket in Iowa, does that mean I'm automatically entered in the promotion?

No. You need to login to your VIP Club account and enter the ticket into the promotion to have a chance to win the New York trip package prize.

Can I enter tickets from any other lotto games in the promotion?

Tickets in any games other than Powerball are ineligible. Any entries from games other than Powerball will be disqualified.

Can I enter winning Powerball tickets in the promotion?

Yes, winning and nonwinning Powerball tickets are eligible to be entered.

If my ticket has multiple plays on it, will that count as more than one entry into the promotion?

No. Each ticket entered counts as one entry into the promotion, regardless of the number of plays on it, or the number of Powerball drawings for which the ticket is eligible.

Do I need to keep my Powerball ticket after I enter it?

No, you do not have to keep your ticket to be eligible to win in the promotion. However, be sure to check all of your Powerball tickets to see if they've won a prize in the Wednesday or Saturday drawing for which you bought them!
