A Lottery Player in Tennessee Won $421 Million

If you played the Powerball in Tennessee, check your tickets because one lucky player is a multi-millionaire.  The winning numbers announced on Saturday, November 26th are: 17, 19, 21, 37 44, and Powerball Number 16.  The winner has yet to come forward for one of the biggest prizes on record!

The unknown winner has the option to receive the prize money over the course of 30 years or to collect a $254.7 million-dollar lump-sum.

Half of all money collected from Powerball sales goes to winner payouts and 40 percent goes to government causes like education.  The remaining 10 percent of the revenue goes to retailers who sell winning Powerball tickets.

The Powerball winner has 190 days to claim his or her prize.  We hope the winner comes forward soon to collect this life-changing money!


What are the most likely numbers to win Powerball? An experiment


I’m going to conduct an experiment in playing the Powerball lottery using hot numbers and statistically significant mathematical patterns. If you don’t see this post updated after a drawing, it means that I won and you should forward all correspondence henceforth to Tahiti.


Powerball results for September 7, 2016

For the Wednesday Powerball drawing, I purchased a ticket with these winning numbers: 32-61-26-32-45-19 (see below for winning logic).

Except I didn’t win. The numbers drawn were 22-23-29-33-55-21. In fact, I didn’t match a single number.

Hmm. Maybe it’s time to tweak the strategy. For Saturday, I’m going to play just the hot numbers. Over the last 1000 draws, the hottest numbers have been (in order): 32-23-12-20-52-13. We’ll give this a shot and see how much money I win. Now, I’m really feeling lucky.


Powerball results for August 27, 2016

I didn’t win the Powerball jackpot. However, no one did, so I don’t feel so bad. The winning numbers were 4,32,48,49,63,20

I matched only one number, 48. The hottest number, 32, was chosen again, so I should have stuck with what was hot. Of course, the coldest number, 63, was also chosen.

For my next ticket, I’ll pick the hottest number 32 and the coldest number, which is now 61 (chosen only 6 times in the last 1000 jackpot drawings). I’ll again choose a range of even and odd numbers.

My ticket will be: 32-61-26-32-45-19

I’m feeling lucky!


Let’s try an experiment to see how well we can predict which numbers are most likely to win the Powerball by looking at hot and cold numbers as well as statistically significant mathematical patterns.

The most recent Powerball winning combination was 9-11-25-64-65 and the powerball was 5.

According to our Hit Frequency and Rank Chart, the hottest numbers – i.e., the ones that have been chosen most frequently – during the past 1000 draws are 32 and 12. The coldest numbers are 63 and 61.

Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is up to $142 million.

If I were playing, I would include 32 and 21 in my picks and avoid 63 and 61. Let’s see how we do.

Further, I would avoid the combination 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65 because these combinations have never won a lottery ever, and worse, thousands of people play these combinations so your actual share of the jackpot would be relatively small.

Finally, according to smart math people, http://lifetickler.com/lottery-can-be-predicted-according-to-math/, the 3 Even & 3 Odd number pattern has the best chance of getting drawn.

So, if I use the awesome number picker on this site and following the aforementioned rules, I’m going to purchase a Powerball lottery ticket with these numbers:

01-23-45-48-55-21

I’ll return to this page and talk about the results.

The Powerball jackpot, of course, is won by matching all five white balls (each one is numbered 1 through 69) in any order, plus the one red Powerball number (numbered 1 through 26) for a total of six matching balls. The Powerball jackpot often reaches hundreds of millions of dollars, and just recently the jackpot reached over $1 billion.

How to use this site to find the Powerball Hot Numbers

On our homepage, you’ll find links to the lottery results for every U.S. state plus lottery results for the Mega Millions and Powerball lotteries. Click on your favorite state. When you view the lottery results for that state, you’ll see a table labeled “Lottery Results.” The first row lists the most recent results for Powerball. Next to the drawing dates is column called “Features” with four icons.

Click on the icon that looks like a gear for Powerball.

Hot Powerball Numbers

Next, you’ll see a chart that displays the hot, cold and overdue numbers for Powerball. These numbers are based on the last 50 draws.

The “Hot Numbers” are the numbers that have been chosen most frequently during the past 50 Powerball drawings. The “Cold Numbers” are of course the numbers that have been chosen the most infrequently during the past 50 Powerball drawings.

Now here’s where it gets interesting: Notice that the hot Powerball numbers are typically spread across the entire number field from 1 to 69. If you divide the number field in half, you have a bottom half and a top half. In a 69-number game like Powerball, numbers 1 to 34 would be in the bottom half, and numbers 35 to 69 would be in the top half. All bottom half or all top half numbers are rarely drawn, occurring in only 4% of most recent Powerball results. The best mix based on the winning numbers seems to have a 3:2 or 2:3 mix. In other words, three numbers in the bottom half and two numbers in the top half. Or visa versa. For the current Powerball results, one of these 2 patterns has occurred in about 64% of drawings, so it’s a very strong pattern to follow for future Powerball drawings.

The Power of Overdue Numbers

Typically numbers that have been out for six games or less account for about half of future winning numbers. Losing numbers that have been out for 9 games or less account for about 2/3 of all the winning numbers. And losing numbers that have been out for 12 games or less account for about 3/4 of all the winning numbers. Therefore ,based on cold numbers, you can generate a list of overdue numbers.

To realize your best chance of winning Powerball, you need to choose mostly hot numbers, but make sure to include an overdue number as well.

This combination of winning and overdue Powerball numbers produces the second table called Combinations.

The Combinations chart suggests numbers based on the reasoning above and avoids patterns and the “lucky” number syndrome.

Powerball Jackpot hit $478 Million – 8th biggest prize in US history!

Nobody won the Powerball on Wednesday July 27th, so the jackpot mushroomed to a whopping $478 million dollars!

Officials say that makes it the fifth largest prize in the game’s history and the eighth-biggest prize ever in the United States.

The drawing for $478 million was held on Saturday, July 30th. There was a single grand prize winner in New Hampshire.

The winning numbers for Saturday were 11, 17, 21, 23, 32, and the Powerball was 5.

The winner has the option of receiving $478 million if spread over 30 years, or a lump-sum payment of $330.6 million taxes.

Because there was a jackpot winner that means the drawing on Wednesday, August 3 will be worth $40 million with a cash option of $28.1 million.

Either way, $40 million is still a hefty prize!  FreeLotto wants to know, will you be playing?


How to improve your chances of winning Powerball jackpot


A simple way to improve your odds by 100X


As you may have seen, a lucky customer at a 7-Eleven in Trenton, New Jersey, won the $430 Million Powerball Jackpot last week. The Powerball jackpot has since been reset to $40 million. Of course, the jackpot does rise by $10 million after each drawing that does not produce a winner, which means Saturday’s jackpot is up to $50 million and climbing.

Now you may have been told many times that the odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are astronomical, somewhere in the neighborhood of 1 in 292.2 million. And that would be right of course. You may have also been told about different ways to improve your chances of winning, like letting the lottery computer pick your numbers (which by the way really only helps to increase your percentage of the winnings and not your overall odds of winning in the first place).

However, the single, and perhaps only, way to truly improve your odds of winning is to acquire more tickets. Strategies like wheeling are all still based on the fact you need to purchase more tickets.

The simple fact is if you buy a second ticket, you’ve improved your odds of winning by 100%.

Well, what if you could acquire 100 tickets. Then, obviously, you would improve your chances by 100X.

And what if getting that 100 extra chances of winning were free? And you could do that every week?

Jackpot Winner

$430 Million Powerball Ticket Sold in Trenton, New Jersey

The winning $430 Million Powerball ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Trenton, New Jersey!  Though the lucky person hasn’t come forward yet, the owner of the 7-Eleven, Andrea Shin, suspects that the winner might be one of their regular customers.

The winner is said to have picked his or her own numbers and bought the ticket in advance, buying chances in both the Wednesday and Saturday night drawings.

The winner also elected to take the $284 million lump-sum prize when they bought the ticket, rather than collecting the entire $430 million over the next 29 years.

It is one of the largest-single-winning tickets ever awarded by a U.S. lottery – most big jackpots are split between multiple-winning tickets.

Shin says she regrets not playing the lottery this time around but is excited that someone from her convenience store has won.  The store will receive a $30,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket, which Shin plans to spend on a vacation with her husband.

The owner of the ticket has one year to come forward, but we hope they claim their prize much sooner!

Play this week’s Powerball 100 times for free


Every Wednesday and Saturday at exactly 10:59 p.m. Eastern Time in the U.S., five white balls among 69 are drawn out of a drum. Then one red ball among 26 is drawn.

In January, 2016, the Powerball jackpot reach higher than $1 billion. If you match just the 5 balls, again in any order, you are paid $1 million instantly.

True, the odds are pretty long. Well, they are very long. Yet every week, millions and millions of people play in hopes of winning. In fact, half of America plays the lottery at least once in a year. And why not, what have you got to lose? A ticket cost $2. That’s a small price to pay to dream big.

So how can you win?

Or, rather, how can you increase your odds of winning?

You will certainly find plenty of folks who claim to have the secret or recommend wheeling to increase your odds. And we’ve written a number of times that you should not play common numbers, or those that are often picked by others, in case you do win, so you won’t have to split the pot with as many co-winners.
