Hi, Jo. You’ll be able to buy Powerball tickets with the Double Play option in Iowa beginning on Sunday, Nov. 5.

When does the double play start?

Hi, Dave! Thank you for being a plugged-in player! The Power Play option will remain. We know it is popular in the game as well. When Double Play debuts in November, Powerball will have two add-on options: Power Play and Double Play. A Powerball ticket without either option added will cost $2. With the Power Play or Double Play added, a ticket will cost $3. With both options added, a ticket will cost $4. It is your choice as a player how you want to play!

Does the multiplier option then go away? Players who choose the multiplier option already pay $3. If that option remains, will a ticket with both the multiplier and the double play cost $4? Or do you choose one or the other, or neither?

Hi, CJ. I think from your comment that you are asking about the option of being able to purchase lottery tickets online in Iowa. That is a policy decision for our state's lawmakers to make. Please contact your local legislators if that is a priority you would like to share with them.
