The Lottery games are a sweet gamble which lures a lot of individuals. Although the results of these games are quite random, people sometimes wonder whether any lucky numbers have higher winning probabilities than others.
Let’s find out if there are any lucky numbers in the Lottery games that win more often than other numbers.
Luckiest Powerball Lottery numbers
When you play Powerball, there is a probability that any number between 1 to 69 will come up in the draw and be the winning number for the first five draws. Therefore, to draw the 6th winning card, a pool of red balls consisting of the numbers 1 to 26 is used.
After going through the results of Powerballs for the last five years, it can be said that the luckiest numbers for white Powerball are as follows:
- The first number is 23, which was drawn on 2.08% of all the Powerball draws.
- The second number is 32 and has been drawn on 2.05% of all the Powerball draws.
- 61 has to be the third number drawn on 1.06% of all the Powerball draws.
