What is the best strategy for winning powerball? I have been searching for strategies to win the power ball. Does anyone have any suggestions? If you are addicted to finding that winning strategy, drop me an email. I need all the help I can get. Ill share my opinions with you.
Answer: Let me spoil the surprise for you. There is no 'system' and there is not 'steategy.' Every time the balls pop out of that machine it is a completely random event that has no bearing on any previous drawing. The random numbers will be produced and if you are lucky they will match the numbers you picked. The odds of winning Power ball are over 115 million to one. You are significantly more likely to die on the way to pick up your ticket. You can plan all the systems you like, but you are going to have to get really incredibly lucky to win.

What Are The Odds Of Not Getting A Single Power ball Digit In A Power ball Lottery Drawing?From Gambling Forum:
What are the odds of not getting a single Power ball digit in a Power ball lottery drawing? I have been playing Power ball for years (maybe 20 times per year). I have had one digit in all that time. For a drawing, what are the odds of not getting a single digit?
Answer: OK, let's do the math. First ball out of the machine: You have a 54 out of 59 chance that one of your numbers will NOT be picked. Keep track, now. That's 54/59. Second ball out of the machine: Assuming the first one didn't hit one of your numbers, you now have a 53 out of 58 chance that your numbers will NOT be picked. 53/58. Third ball: 52/57. Fourth ball: 51/56. Last regular ball out: 50/55 that NONE of your numbers come out. Finally you've got to avoid the Power Ball. For that, you've got a 38 out of 39 chance that you will NOT hit the Power Ball number. 38/39. To figure out your chance of not hitting ANY numbers at all, just multiply the following then: 54/59 * 53/58 * 52/57 * 51/56 * 50/55 * 38/39. Your answer is exactly (unsimplified) 14,421,045,600/23,429,886,480. Simplified, that is approximately 61.55%. So more often than not, you should NOT hit ANY numbers at all. Still, if you've ONLY ONCE hit only ONE number, then you are drawing just a bit worse than you ought to be. (Not too much worse that usual, but a bit.) Above all else, know this: The lottery companies are only paying out around 50% of what they take in! So if they sell $100,000 worth of tickets, they only put about $50,000 into the prize pools! At a 50% payback rate, this makes playing the lottery the WORST BET anyone can possibly make.
How Do When Know That The Power ball And State Lotto's Are Not Rigged?From Gambling Forum:
How do when know that the Power ball and state lotto's are not rigged? I live in Indiana and nobody has won the lotto in forever. Several times the lotto has been bigger than the Power ball with over 10 times the likelihood of winning than the Power ball lottery itself. Surely they can keep track of all the numbers out there and somehow rig the machine to not pick those numbers or to pick the numbers that certain individual related to the inside have. What kind of controls if any are in place to protect those of us who play? Is it possible mafia and or corrupt individual's are taking advantage? Any information or respectful opinions will be appreciated. lil dark zero, lotto is short for lottery and is what our state lottery is called (Hossier Lotto). aladdinwa, by not question nor fighting corruption is just how we can be taken advantage of on a daily basis. For example war profiteering is going on like crazy over in Iraq. In a 60 billion dollar audit they found over 10 billion of it totally and completely unaccounted for. That is your money and mine. Tax payers get raped all the time by pork barrel politics and what is done about it? It's about all we can do just to keep it shored up to a some degree. So in light of all this let me ask you, if we are getting taken advantage of almost in an in your face way what's to stop those in control of such lotteries from taken gross advantage of the players for their own personal gain? HartleyBaldwin, commissions and accountants are not free from the influence of corruption either. As for making a lot of money being a reason they would not cheap I beg to differ. Greed sometimes grows in correspondence with the money you have access to.
Answer: It is in the best interest of the lottery to have a big winner. Big winners bring big publicity, which increases sales. Remember also that Indiana is only a single state. Power ball is played in 29 states (including Indiana). There just aren't as many people buying the Indiana tickets as Power ball tickets. Even though the odds may be 10 times better on the Indiana lotto, there probably 100 times as many people buying Power ball.

Answer: In the US, we have a lottery called "PowerBall". That's why your question ended up in the "Gambling" section, even though you're talking about a therapeutic ball. Try re-posting, but this time be careful when it asks you WHERE you want to post your question. Chose a medical category.

Why Are The Power ball And Mega Millions Odds The Same For ND Place Prize?From Gambling Forum:
Why are the power ball and mega millions odds the same for ND Place Prize? It says on the back of both play cards the odds of matching 5 balls out of six and not matching the mega or power ball are 1:in 3,904,701. But Power ball has more balls 1 -59 and Mega has less balls 1 -56. So If Power ball uses 3 more balls how can the odds be the same? They cant be. The odds of matching 5 out of 6 in power ball are more like 1: 5,138,133.
Answer: One at a time I will tell you some specific odds of getting certain combinations. Then I will explain why these odds are not the same as what's listed on each website. To hit 5 balls out of 5 with 56 numbers (like the Mega Millions) it is a 1 out of 3,819,816. (Keep in mind that the Mega Millions ND place prize is listed as 1 out of 3,904,701, just like you said.) To hit 5 balls out of 5 with 59 numbers (like the PowerBall) it is a 1 out of 5,006,386. (Again, this is not the same as what is posted on the Power Ball website. On the website it is 1 out of 5,138,133, just like you said.) I'm not really sure what "play card" your talking about. Perhaps you misread one of them. Now maybe I misunderstood your question from the beginning, but let me finish my point. I'll just use 1 of the above set of numbers to make my point. If there were only 5 balls from 1 to 56, the chances of hitting all 5 would be 1 out of 3,819,816. The reason the Mega Millions website lists the odds of getting this as 1 out of 3,904,701 is because they are talking about ONLY hitting those 5 numbers. Because of the fact that sometimes you'll hit the Mega Ball number, too, this reduces the chances that you'll ONLY get the 5 white balls, and nothing else. I'm fairly sure I got a bit off topic from what you were looking for. Again, perhaps you just misread the "play cards".
Is It Better To Play Scratch Tickets Are The Mega Millions Or Powerball?From Gambling Forum:
Is it better to play scratch tickets are the mega millions or powerball? I spend 20.00 every two months on tickets. Is it better to buy the 10.00 tickets or 5.00 or the mega millions or power ball. I only do this for fun. Yes I do save money each month. Its just for entertainment. Yes I work too and go to school. What kind of strategy should I use?
Answer: Your details show as if you expect to some answers and give the response to every possible suggestions Good that you go to school Good that you work Good that you play only for fun Good that you spend only $20 So what may be not good? Powerball. Is it right that there are 59 balls? You have not any chance Scratch off? I don't want to hear about it. Mega millions. A few people told me some favorable things about Mega M. but still it is hard to win. Try to make a little pool of friends. It will help you buy more tickets And try to put one number from the last three draws one number from those numbers that were not drawn in the last 10 draws and the rest of numbers from the last draws 4-8. I say only try because you are a busy person because a better strategy requests time , energy, analysis of past performance of your system. You see, there is a better way, but you need to work with, and I understand that you have not much time. That is why I told you a pool or wheeling and maybe a bit of luck will help you Success mm
How Many Possible Combinations Are There For The Oklahoma Power ball Lottery?From Gambling Forum:
How many possible combinations are there for the Oklahoma power ball lottery? The regular numbers go from 1 - 55 and the Power ball is from 1 - 42.
Answer: 146,107,962 There's a good explanation of the math behind this here: http://www.plainmath.net/index.php?page=lottery . For Power ball, you need to first figure out the number of ways to choose 5 balls from 55, then multiply by 42 to account for the Power ball. Andrew's math would be correct for a lottery that picks 5 numbers out of 42, and where you have to get the numbers in the right order. In Power ball, they pick 5 regular numbers out of 55, and then from a separate drum pick one Power ball from 1 to 42. Also, order doesn't matter. So the numbers could be 1-6-17-28-49 with a power ball of 17 for example.
