Last Updated: Tuesday 9 January 2018, 13:01 pm
Australia Powerball has hit $55 million for the year’s second draw, after rolling for a sixth time on Thursday 4th January. Players across the country, and around the world, now have the perfect opportunity to kick off the year in style with the game’s biggest Division 1 prize pool since 5th January 2017. If you fancy a slice of the action, how will you choose your Powerball numbers?
Do you believe that the past performance of lottery numbers has a bearing on the future? If so, you will want to look into the Powerball statistics. The most common main Powerball numbers are currently 5, 13, 19, 22 and 24, with 34 and 36 tied in sixth place. The most common Powerball is 18. You could also look into the numbers most overdue an appearance in the winning line. See the Statistics page for more information.
Notable Dates or Personal Numbers
Many lottery players pick their numbers based on notable dates, which makes them easy to remember. However, using this method, you can only pick balls up to a cap of 31, which means you miss out on the grand prize if numbers 32 or higher appear.
Instead of sticking purely to dates, you could add in other digits, such as house numbers or ages. If you pick your Powerball numbers based on ages, you will have to change them every year and run the risk that one of your previous numbers comes up after a birthday.
Random Powerball Numbers
Every Powerball line has the same chance as any other when it comes to winning the jackpot. This makes a random selection attractive because there is less chance you will have to share your prizes with as many other players. Popular selection methods like using statistics, or systems that reduce the potential number pool, like using birthdays, mean that there are likely to be more winners if those numbers come up, reducing the payout for players.
