One South Carolina Powerball player won $2 million for matching the five main numbers drawn excluding the Powerball number. The lucky ticket holder chose the Power Play multiplier, which means that their $1 million prize was doubled. In addition, two further ticket holders in Illinois and Minnesota both matched the same combination of numbers, however they didn’t opt in to the Power Play option, meaning that they each won $1 million! In total for this draw, there were 757,773 non-jackpot winners, three of which have already been mentioned. The non-jackpot prize pool for this draw was $9,027,441 which means that the average Powerball payout for this drawing was $11.91. To view the latest Powerball numbers, visit www.lottonumbers.net.
Here we are going to take a look at some of the latest Powerball Statistics, they are correct at the time of writing, however they will change as future draws take place:
The current Powerball jackpot is an estimated $247 million, which is the largest advertised jackpot since the September 18th, 2013 Powerball draw. Not only this, but the Powerball has not been won so far in 2014, could Saturday’s drawing change this?
Many lottery players like to use statistics to help them pick their numbers, so, using the comprehensive Powerball statistics (lottonumbers.net), you can see that the most common Powerball numbers are 26, 41, 22, 35, 42. This does not mean that these numbers are guaranteed to be drawn on Saturday, however, they are the five numbers that have been drawn the most amount of times.
Interestingly, another approach to picking your numbers statistically is to look at the most overdue numbers, these are the numbers that haven’t been drawn as one of the winning numbers for the longest amount of time, this does not, however, mean that they are due to be drawn any time soon, they are 16, 21, 30, 46, 22.
