How many numbers in Powerball do you need to win?

To play the Powerball, you select five white ball numbers and one "Powerball," or red ball, number. For an extra dollar, you may choose to "power play," which multiplies all non-grand prize winnings by a factor of 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10.
Here is a guide to winnings:
1 matching number that is the Powerball number: $4
1 matching number + the Powerball number: $4
2 matching numbers + the Powerball number: $7
3 matching numbers: $7
3 matching numbers + the Powerball number: $100
4 matching numbers: $100
4 matching numbers + the Powerball numbers: $50,000
5 matching numbers: $1 million
5 matching numbers + the Powerball number: Grand prize
These winnings can be multiplied by the " power play" number which is randomly chosen before each drawing.
