While loser numbers are worth backing, 59% of the time a winning number from the previous week will hit. For example, in the last 5 weeks, 27 has hit 4 weeks in a row, 11, 35 and 30 have all hit in separate back to back weeks.

Based on these finding of loser numbers over 4 and 10 games, plus repeat winning numbers I have calculated these 8 numbers to be the highest chance of being drawn in the record-breaking Powerball Jackpot in order of chance (highest to lowest), with 23, 25 and 34 all having the same percentage.

Best chance numbers: 2, 29, 18, 31, 33, 23, 25, 34

What not to do

Sometimes a good hack is knowing what not to do.

In this case, don’t bet on the same winning numbers of a past draw – a set of the exact winning numbers being drawn again might happen once every 1,476,300 years. Don’t think science can keep us alive that long yet.

Another don’t is picking numbers in a row is a big no-no. Not once has there been a winning ticket drawn with all numbers in a row.
