Here are the odds for the current powerball. Does anyone remember the odds for the 1-55/1-39 game.

 Match Odds Prize (Odds 1:4) (Odds 1:4) (Odds 1:4) (Odds 1:4) 5 Numbers plus POWERBALL 1 - 195,249,054 Jackpot* n/a n/a n/a n/a 5 Numbers without POWERBALL 1 - 5,138,133 \$200,000 \$1,000,000 \$1,000,000 \$1,000,000 \$1,000,000 4 Numbers plus POWERBALL 1 - 723,145 \$10,000 \$20,000 \$30,000 \$40,000 \$50,000 4 Numbers without POWERBALL 1 - 19,030 \$100 \$200 \$300 \$400 \$500 3 Numbers plus POWERBALL 1 - 13,644 \$100 \$200 \$300 \$400 \$500 3 Numbers without POWERBALL 1 - 359 \$7 \$14 \$21 \$28 \$35 2 Numbers plus POWERBALL 1 - 787 \$7 \$14 \$21 \$28 \$35 1 Number plus POWERBALL 1 - 123 \$4 \$8 \$12 \$16 \$20 POWERBALL 1 - 62 \$3 \$6 \$9 \$12 \$15 Overall odds of winning are 1:35

Surprising how high some of these odds are like 3+0.
