The hunt is on for Australia’s latest big winners after the numbers were drawn for this week’s $40million Powerball jackpot. 

The winning numbers drawn on Thursday night for Powerball draw 1310 were: 30 – 33 – 21 – 13 – 28 – 31 – 8, with the Powerball number 15.

There were no division one winners, but three division two winners have netted more than $210,000 each.

Last month a young Sydney mum scooped $9million after a psychic predicted her win. Her fortune followed a $30million winner from Sydney’s Lane Cove two weeks earlier.

The Lott spokesperson Lauren Cooney said those marking their Powerball entries for draws could consider how they interpreted the game’s ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ numbers.

‘While Powerball is a random game of chance, and every number has an equal chance of being drawn, there are some numbers we have seen drawn out of the barrel more often than others,’ she said. 

From the main barrel the most common winning numbers are 17, which has been drawn 41 times since April 2018, and 9, which has been drawn 40 times.

But the most frequently drawn all-important Powerball numbers are 19, 2, 3, 7, 4, 13 and 6.

Ms Cooney said players interested in trying their hand at choosing their numbers may mark ‘hot’ numbers in the hope they live up to their reputation of being drawn more often.

‘Or they could choose to use ‘cold’ numbers in the belief their turn to be drawn is just around the corner,’ she said.

‘We’ve even had previous winners tell us they avoid both sets of ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ numbers, instead picking those numbers that aren’t getting any attention.’
