# Learn to Predict Powerball Numbers | Patterns in Powerball

Powerball is an American lottery game sold through lotteries as a shared jackpot pool game. Each participant purchases as ticket. Each player selects 5 numbers from a set of fifty-nine (white balls) and one number from a set of thirty-nine (the Powerball). Players can either select their numbers on their own or they can elect to have them randomly selected by a machine. At the time of the drawing, 5 balls are drawn from a machine containing white balls numbered one through 59. One red ball is picked from another machine containing red balls numbered one through 39; these become the official winning numbers. Tickets which match at least 3 white balls and/or the red Powerball are winners.

Now that you have basic idea of how the game works, we get back to the original topic: Can you learn the pattern of the numbers? At first, all of this seems random, Right? A double millionaire in this game suggests studying the past outcomes in Powerball game to improve odds of winning in the future. Let’s take this advice (he has won twice!) and study the past of this games to unravel the mystery, this might involve a bit of Statistics so bear with me:

Let me go forward with this article. We’ll look at the one hundred Powerball draws in the month of May of 2010. Within the one hundred draws of the Powerball, seventy draws didn’t result in consecutive numbers. This is what one would expect according to statistical analysis. Just like in the tossing of a coin there is 50-50 percent chance of getting a head of tail. Similarly, in Powerball draws there were, one can say that there was 70-30 chance that the draw wouldn’t result in consecutive numbers. So, there seem to be some light at the end of the tunnel.

Let’s Play RBI Baseball, Powerball! Game 3, pt 1/2 – YouTube: Here’s Game 3, with slightly better quality! Sort of. Kinda.

That was all theory. Now let’s see what reality has to say: If you look at the results and look for consecutives, it comes out to the same 70-30 statistical norm. But there is one more occurrence to be mentioned: In the one hundred draws there were twenty-six had 2 consecutive against the theoretical expectation of 27. So collectively, ninety-six out of one hundred draws were either no consecutives or exactly 2 consecutives.

So, in ten weeks, you can expect the winning Powerball number to have no consecutive numbers or only 2 in nine times. So the bottom line of all this statistical mumbo jumbo is this: Bet on either,

All Non-Consecutive numbers, OR

Only 2 Consecutive numbers.

Can power ball, Big Game and other big pay out be rig? All big money lottery's have to be rig. Because from a mathematical stand point, you most have more than 1,2 or three winner's base on change. You see, if numbers are random, then the odds that there will be more than three winners, will be base on the same concept as fantasy 5, cash three and 4. And that’s; The power of input numbers based on number of tickets sold, will allow the odds of the power of 1^too the 2nd power. The odds will be within the ream of reason, based on the number of ticket's sold. Others words you must! Have several or more winner's for every twenty games played.

They don't have to be rigged; they take 50+% off the top. They're really parimutuel betting schemes and not subject to probability payoffs.

Every drawing starts at zero and the odds don't change. You can buy tickets in twenty drawings and still not win anything because the law of averages doesn't change based upon your purchases but the randomness of the balls.
