How Much Did a Powerball Ticket Cost in the Past?
The price of Powerball tickets has slightly increased over the years, but the jackpot has also increased by millions. Before 2012, the price of a single Powerball line was $1, and the Powerplay option was not yet introduced. Currently, each line costs $2 and the Powerplay multiplier adds another $1 per line.
This price modification was designed to avoid confusion between the US Powerball vs the US Mega Millions, its direct competitor.
