In Powerball, “Double Play” is a feature that allows players to purchase an additional chance to win prizes by adding an extra set of numbers to their ticket. When you choose the Double Play option, you get two sets of numbers for each Powerball ticket you purchase: one for the main Powerball draw and one for the Double Play draw. If you win a prize in the main draw, you can also win a prize in the Double Play draw if your numbers match the numbers drawn for Double Play. The prizes for Double Play are typically smaller than the prizes for the main Powerball draw, but it gives you an extra chance to win.
