How to win the $50m Powerball

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - LIFESTYLE -

WITH peo­ple clam­our­ing to se­cure their en­try in tonight’s (May 11) $50 mil­lion Powerball draw, re­search has revealed the num­bers most fre­quently drawn in the past 12 months.

Thurs­day’s Powerball jack­pot is the sec­ond high­est Aus­tralian prize pool this year, only beaten by the $55 mil­lion Powerball draw on Jan­uary 5 this year, which was won by a syn­di­cate of 21 Queens­land Govern­ment work­ers.

While Powerball is a ran­dom game of chance and ev­ery num­ber has an equal chance of be­ing drawn, how­ever the draw his­tory shows the “hot” and “cold” num­bers drawn dur­ing the past year’s 52 draws.

For the main bar­rel, where six win­ning num­bers are drawn from 40, the hot num­bers are: 31, 36, 8, 22, 13, 24, 26.

The “hot” num­ber is 31, which has been drawn 14 times, or once in ev­ery four draws, while 36 has been fea­tured 13 times. The num­bers 8 and 22 have each been se­lected 12 times, while 13, 24 and 26 have each been drawn 11 times.

The “cold” num­bers are 2, 15, 21 and 27.

For the all-im­por­tant Powerball num­ber, the “hottest” is 5 fol­lowed by 11.
