# Most common Powerball numbers in 2023: Is there a strategy?

No number is more likely to make you rich than others, but some numbers have been a bit more popular over the past seven years.

WASHINGTON – A massive Powerball jackpot is currently at \$1 billion, and you may be wondering if some numbers are “lucky” than others.

Short answer: All combinations have the same small chance of winning. To win the jackpot, you need to beat the huge odds of 1 in 292.2 million by matching the numbers on the five white balls and the red Powerball.

Players often wonder if there is a strategy for it. Some numbers were drawn a little more often than others, but your chances are still the same for any combination.

## Is some number luckier?

Statistics professor Rong Chen said in a Q&A articles from Rutgers University that any combination has the same odds. Being picked in the past doesn’t mean a combination is more or less likely to win: “Those numbers have the same chance of winning as any other number today.”

Chen says combinations that other players are less likely to choose, such as strong patterns or numbers that are too high for the date of birth, can reduce your chances of having to share the jackpot. However, that doesn’t make you more likely to actually win.
