    No.  The power play doubles the 2nd prize tier and down only. L

      Powerplay does not work for the 5+1 prize it only works for 5+0 prizes and lower.  For matching the 5+0 and a 2 multiplier you would have a $400 thousand prize plus whatever your equal share of the Match 5 Bonus Prize pool would be.-weshar75

        Took this from the LA website: http://www.louisianalottery.com/index.cfm?md=game&tmp=detail_drawing&gameid=4

        THE DRAWING

        Powerball drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday. Make sure you buy your tickets for each Powerball drawing by 9 p.m. on the day of the drawing.

        The jackpot prize will be divided equally among multiple winners.

        The advertised Jackpot Prize represents an estimate of the annuity amount which would be paid in 30 graduated installments. Set prize payouts may become pari-mutuel if prize liability exceeds established prize pool funding and all Power Play prizes will be calculated using the new pari-mutuel prize amount.

        Power Play does not apply to the Jackpot Prize or the Match 5 Bonus Prize.

        Match 5 Bonus

        Whenever the jackpot reaches a new all-time high, its prize pool can grow by no more than $25 million. Any prize money collected in excess of $25 million will fund the Match 5 Bonus prize pool, which will accumulate until there is a jackpot winner. At that time, the Match 5 Bonus will be divided equally and paid in a single cash payment to all match 5 winners during that same drawing. If there are no match 5 winners, the bonus will be paid to all "match 4 + Powerball" winners and so on. The Match 5 Bonus is not multiplied by the Power Play but is paid in addition to any other Powerball or Power Play prize won.

            I think that the powerplay option for match 5 bonus is: A fixed match 5 bonus plus the multiplier of your win. ex. multiplier = 4, match 5 bonus = 1 million. Then, the match 5 bonus winner gets 4*$200,000 + 1million. I think.
