Powerball’s winning numbers: These lucky lottery numbers have been drawn the most in Powerball
The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday’s lottery drawing is an estimated $730 million. Some Powerball numbers get drawn more often than other numbers, according to data from a lottery website.
Math experts will tell you it doesn’t matter which numbers you pick in the huge Powerball lottery jackpot that’s up for grabs Wednesday night. They’ll say the odds are exactly the same for each number to get drawn, because the selection process is random and there’s a precise number of balls in the lottery bin.
However, if you’re looking for some type of “edge” to your Powerball or Mega Millions strategy, it can’t hurt to take a peek at the numbers that have been drawn the most often during the past six years.
A quick reminder: In early October 2015, the main pool of balls in the Powerball lottery was expanded from 59 to 69, and the number of red “Powerballs” were reduced from 35 to 26. Nevertheless, the already astronomical odds of winning the big jackpot got even tougher. (The odds of matching all six numbers are 292,201,338 to 1 for a single $2 ticket.)
