Powerball Winning Numbers History: A Look at Which Numbers Are Drawn the Most



The Powerball jackpot is now at $570 million for tonight, and if no one wins then it will grow even more. Although the numbers are drawn completely at random, some people still like to know the history of the winning numbers so they can base the numbers they choose on what’s won before. There’s no statistical reason to believe this will help you win, but sometimes this can be a fun strategy to use. Your odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338 per play.

To see a complete list of the numbers that have won in the past, there are a number of places you can go. Powerball has a list here but it’s not quite as easy to navigate as some other pages. Wisconsin has a better display of the winning numbers here. Here’s a look at the winning numbers that have been drawn since November 4, courtesy of the Wisconsin Lottery site:
