One strategy that people are known to trust when picking Powerball numbers is picking the most popular lottery numbers. In accordance with Lotto Numbers, which tracks Powerball stats over time, these are the most common white ball numbers that were drawn between 2015 and 2022.

However, it is essential to note that there’s no difference between choosing the most popular numbers or relying on random numbers as everything is based on luck.

“You’re likely to never discover anything about what the likely picked numbers will be based on the previous picks since they’re all made completely randomly,” Dr Mark Glickman Professor of Statistics and Senior Lecturer in Harvard University, told The Independent. “The information contained in previous drawings don’t provide any details about the chances of choosing numbers for any particular day.”

Although, Derek Smith, professor of mathematics at Lafayette College, told us that there are methods to avoid splitting the jackpot with other players. “Nothing can increase the odds of winning the jackpot each when you gamble,” Professor Smith said. “That is why, if through the luck of a god, your numbers do coincide with the numbers that were drawn, then you’ll need to share the jackpot with other players who have chosen the same set of numbers.”

Players often choose numbers such as birthdays, ages of children, or anniversary dates for their lottery numbers, however experts caution against this strategy because it limits the range of numbers between the numbers one to 31. “If you do play, you may want to select numbers that decrease your odds of matching other’ numbers,” Professor Smith added.

Even though no one claimed the grand prize in Wednesday’s draw, there were 16 winning tickets worth $1 million that matched all five balls of white. Three additional tickets were sold that won $2m According to Powerball.

This is the first time the Powerball jackpot has become $1 billion over its 30 years of existence, according to the website for lottery. The huge prize will be given to winners who choose to accept the entire prize in 29 installments.
