STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Trying to choose those lucky Powerball numbers and put them to the test Wednesday night?
Some statistics might help.
In order to win the current Powerball jackpot of $620 million, a player must pick five numbers from a pool of 69 and one Powerball from a separate pool of 56. There are also eight other tiers available in each draw for smaller prizes. Matching the Powerball number alone could net you a big financial gain.
The next drawing is Wednesday at 10:59 p.m.
In the most recent drawing, which took place last weekend, the following numbers were drawn: 15, 54, 57, 62 and 69. The Power Play number was 2 and the Powerball number was 23. On that date, the prize was $476,700,000.

Powerball’s winning numbers: These lucky lottery numbers have been drawn the most in Powerball
The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday’s lottery drawing is an estimated $730 million. Some Powerball numbers get drawn more often than other numbers, according to data from a lottery website.
Math experts will tell you it doesn’t matter which numbers you pick in the huge Powerball lottery jackpot that’s up for grabs Wednesday night. They’ll say the odds are exactly the same for each number to get drawn, because the selection process is random and there’s a precise number of balls in the lottery bin.
However, if you’re looking for some type of “edge” to your Powerball or Mega Millions strategy, it can’t hurt to take a peek at the numbers that have been drawn the most often during the past six years.
A quick reminder: In early October 2015, the main pool of balls in the Powerball lottery was expanded from 59 to 69, and the number of red “Powerballs” were reduced from 35 to 26. Nevertheless, the already astronomical odds of winning the big jackpot got even tougher. (The odds of matching all six numbers are 292,201,338 to 1 for a single $2 ticket.)Powerball’s winning numbers: These lucky lottery numbers have been drawn the most in Powerball The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday’s lottery drawing is an estimated $730 million.
