I created this forum post for anyone who may find it useful. If you have any Powerball Pointers when playing Powerball please post them if you would like too. Thanks

 

The following reference below is simply to help guide one when choosing how many numbers in one family or field of numbers and is for the 5 front white balls. And does not account for the PB.

And is intended for reference only for Powerball.

 Data from 10/09/2002 - 01/30/2013

 

4 numbers between 01 - 09 showing occurred 3 times. Last appearance 2003

4 numbers between 10 - 19 has occurred 6 times. Last appearance 2012

4 numbers between 20 - 29 has occurred 2 times. Last appearance 2010

4 numbers between 30 - 39 has occurred 2 times. Last appearance 2006

4 numbers between 40 - 49 has occurred 2 times. Last appearance 2006

4 numbers between 50 - 59 has occurred 2 times. Last appearance 2010

 

3 numbers between 01 - 09 has occurred 16 times. Last appearance 2012

3 numbers between 10 - 19 has occurred 28 times. Last appearance 2012

3 numbers between 20 - 29 has occurred 31 times. Last appearance 2012

3 numbers between 40 - 49 has occurred 30 times. Last appearance 2012

You're on your own after this.

    One tip I have is in regards to number spacing. Specifically in the vast majority of PB draws 2 numbers in the winning set will be 4 numbers or less away from another number selected. An example of this is the January 30 white number set of:

    14-16-32-47-52, where the 14 and 16 are only 2 numbers apart. Statistically this type of close spacing with at least two of the winning numbers happens about 84% of the time. In 2011 it happened in all but 16 draws, and last year it happened in all but 17 draws. So far this year this close spacing phenomenon has happened every draw. In fact it's now been two months since the last draw where there were no numbers within 4 of another number. That was the 12/01/12 draw with the winning white number set of:

    03-10-19-36-46

    I found it quite interesting when I realized this pattern. I'm not a math expert but I had always felt that with a 59 number field set the winning numbers would be more evenly spaced more frequently than in only 15-16% of the draws. Now when I do play I rarely go with a more evenly spaced, well balanced ticket.

      Hello mshar, very interesting this study of deltas, more often, varying with the size of the sample of a lottery 6/49 and 60/49 Lottery 6/6 will have more frequently the two spacing, and also the number of numbers drawn from 5 to 6
      Comes against this padroao in when divided 4 groups and groups will have a zero or a number and another will have two or more, if you play two where give zero will make mistakes and if you play a numerono group that has two, will make mistakes too, this is 100%, another pattern is when the 4 digits of the pair are different example 15.36

            Now that PB is $200M+, you'll get a chance to use it.  Good luck.

              Thanks for posting your tip.

              I'm always looking for a new/different way of looking at the numbers, and your method is one I have not run across before.

              It seems to me that just about everybody has a method they prefer to look at the numbers, and yours is one I hadn't considered.  I know I tend to evenly distribute the numbers on any given line, so in the future I'll be more inclined not to do it.

              About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!
