While online Oz Powerball lottery players here at PlayUSALotteries.com know that the Powerball is a "game of chance" and "every number has an equal chance of being drawn", we still decided to do some in-depth research to see if we could still unveil the game's most frequently drawn numbers of the past couple of months.
For the main barrel, where seven winning numbers are drawn from 34, the 'hot' (most frequently drawn) number is 32, having been drawn a total of 13 times. The second 'hot' number is 29, which was drawn 12 times.
Looking at the 'cold' winning numbers, 1, 10, 11, 12, 21 and 27 made the most appearances, each being drawn four times.
'Hot' Powerball numbers include 3, 13 and 19, again each drawn four times, and the 'Cold' 1, 2, 4 and 18 for the 'Cold', which weren't drawn at all.
