Powerball’s “Hot” and “Cold” numbers  

While each and every number has an equal chance of being drawn, we do see some numbers drawn out of the barrel more often than others. 

From the main barrel, where seven winning numbers are drawn from 35, the most frequently drawn numbers are 17, 9, 2 and 25, while the least frequently drawn are 33, 31, 34 and 6.

From the Powerball barrel, where a single Powerball number is drawn from 20, the most frequently drawn Powerball number is 19, while the least frequently drawn Powerball numbers are 18, 16 and 14.
