If you are looking for a sure way with which you can pick winning Powerball numbers, you've come to the right place. This article tells you how to pick winning Powerball numbers so you can come out successful in a Powerball draw.

Powerball has no doubt reached the peak of its popularity these past months. Internet searches for online sites that host Powerballs have doubled in numbers. Moreover, more and more people are logging online to find out how to pick winning Powerball numbers in the hopes of winning the next Powerball draw and taking home the jackpot or any Powerball prize. But what is Powerball in the first place? How do you play it?

Powerball, the first game ever to use two drums in its core game, is an all-American lottery game that is being sold through United States lotteries as one of the shared jackpot pool games. The Multi-State Lottery Association or MUSL, which is a non-profit organization created by an official agreement understood by all member lotteries, coordinates the workings of Powerball, which includes the development of new games, management of finances, conduction of draws, and other services. Thus, there are several states - thirty-one all in all - that offer Powerball. Because Powerball makes use of not just one but two drums, it allows more flexibility as far as game design it concerned, attracting more players compared with other lotto games. It has a higher possibility of low odds for other prizes but high odds for the jackpot. This two-drum feature is now being used by the United Kingdom's EuroMillions and Thunderball, Australia's Powerball, and the United States' Mega Millions.
In order to know how to pick winning Powerball numbers, you must first know how to play the game. The first thing you have to do is to choose five numbers ranging from one to fifty-five. These are the white balls. Then you have to choose one number ranging from one to forty-two. This is the red ball, also known as the Powerball. Most Powerball hosts offer a Power Play feature, which makes use of a random multiplier through the use of a special wheel. What can be multiplied are the prizes in all levels except the main prize or the jackpot.

People who play Powerball should know how to pick winning Powerball numbers because the chances of winning in this particular lotto game is higher compared to the chances of winning offered by other lotto games. In fact, the overall probability of winning a Powerball prize is one in thirty-six (35.1, to be precise), and this ratio is said to go higher in the coming year. In February of 2006, the jackpot was won by one ticket in Nebraska, and the amount was a stunning $365 million, shared by eight workers in a meat plant. If you want to have the same luck, you need to employ a good amount of logic first.

The most sound advice on how to pick winning Powerball numbers is to use a software package that analyzes the odds of winning according to the odds of certain numbers coming up in a Powerball draw. Many Powerball winners have expressed their support for this kind of strategy for a number of reasons. For one, using a software package deals away with any emotional attachment that may cloud your judgment in choosing possible winning numbers. Another reason is that using a software package allows you to see the history of all the draws and the numbers that usually come up. History repeats itself, so they say, and this really holds true in lottery games.

Finally, Powerball winners recommend this proven strategy because it worked for them - and there's no reason why it can't work for you too.
