Powerball’s ‘lucky’ numbers that appear more frequently than others
Everyone has their lucky numbers but, according to the people at Powerball, some numbers are luckier than others.
With the Powerball jackpot reaching a record $100 million, people seem pretty passionate about numbers right about now.
Some people go with birthdays or anniversaries when it comes to choosing lotto numbers, but this could change that.
According to The Lott, the entity which runs the Powerball draw, there are some numbers that statistically appear as winning numbers more often.
Ahead of Thursday night’s Powerball draw, The Lott’s Bronnie Spencer appeared on the Today Show to give hosts Georgie Gardiner and Karl Stefanovic the deets.
“From time to time we do see a few come out more frequently,” she said.
“In the main barrel for Powerball, these numbers are 32, 34, 9, 24, and 25.
“And for the Powerball Barrel, they’re 9 and 19.
“19 was actually drawn in the last two Powerball draws, so who knows if it will come up for a third time this week.”
But before you go racing off to the newsagency, let’s just unpack that.
Those numbers are, according to The Lott, the ones that have been drawn out the most.
They’re not magic or anything, it’s just that they have historically been drawn out more times than other numbers.
“Every number has an equal chance of being drawn,” Spencer said.
And look, we don’t want to spoil your fantasies about becoming a multi-millionaire for pretty much no effort on your part, but the chances of taking home the big bucks are preeeeeeeeeeeetty low.
So low, in fact, that all those extra Es were editorially justified.
“For a 12-game entry, which is the standard entry most people purchase, the chances [of winning] are one in 11.2 million,” Spencer said.
Sorry to be grim, but the odds are never in your favour.Amazingly, the numbers have nothing to do with your birthday.

Play Meaningful Powerball Lucky Numbers
The first strategy for finding lucky Powerball numbers is also the easiest to understand and utilize. Play numbers that have an immediate and significant meaning to you. Birthdays, anniversaries, ages, any number connected with a loved one or a good friend is a good place to start. Try playing different combinations of meaningful numbers.
For example, only birth years, or months of friends and loved ones. Or, a string of significant dates in your own life, like your birthday, anniversary, and other significant dates. If you need proof that this strategy can work, look no further than Mavis L. Wanczyk, the second largest single Powerball jackpot winner and third-largest jackpot winner, ever. Wanczyk chose the winning numbers for her $758 million ticket from the birthdays of her children.
Play Powerball Hot Numbers
One strategy that many players use is to look at past Powerball draws to find the hot numbers, the ones that have been drawn the most. Players who use Powerball’s hot numbers do so because they believe that they are more likely to appear in the future since these numbers have appeared more often. Imagine flipping a coin and getting heads 5 times in a row. Would you be tempted to say that the 6th coin flip is also going to be heads?
Powerball Hot Numbers of the Month
|Powerball Main Numbers|
|32 – 23 – 69 – 64 – 61|
|21 – 24 – 03 – 06 – 13|
Play Powerball Cold Numbers
Another strategy to try is to play the Powerball cold numbers, also known as due numbers. To find the cold numbers, look at past draws and see which numbers have been drawn less relative to the others. The theory goes that these numbers are more likely to appear, that they’re due. If you flip a coin 5 times and it comes up heads 5 times, you’ll bet tails for the 6th coin toss, if you believe in playing lottery cold numbers.

Numerological Systems to Find Lucky Powerball Numbers
If playing lucky Powerball numbers found in plain sight isn’t bringing the Powerball results you’re looking for, then it’s time to find your hidden lucky numbers. There are many numerological systems available to find lucky numbers to play. Take a cue from the Kabbalists and assign a number to each letter in the alphabet, A=1, B=2, and so on. Now you can unlock the lucky numbers hidden in names, places, meaningful words, etc.
Other Tips and Tricks for Finding Powerball Lucky Numbers
These tips and tricks are about being aware of messages hidden in plain sight. Sometimes we might notice that a number, seemingly coincidentally, keeps recurring. Maybe it looks quite innocuous; the license plate of the car in front of you at the traffic light has the number 63, the same as your street address, and the grocery bill also came out to $34.63.
Patterns like these are good to watch out for when trying to find lucky numbers to play. Try opening a book, a bible for example, to random pages. Use the page numbers as a starting point for lucky numbers for a Powerball entry. This method can work with any book that has significance or meaning in your life.
Play Powerball with Quick Pick! It might seem counterintuitive for those trying to find their own lucky numbers, but there is an important advantage to using random numbers on your ticket.
