There is always great interest in past Powerball winning numbers. Not only do Powerball players want these numbers so they can check tickets that might have won; but also to detect patterns in the amount of times a number appears in a winning combination.
The past Powerball jackpot winning numbers are as follows:
- 1/20/2016: 5, 39, 44, 47, 69 and the Powerball was 24
- 1/16/2016: 3, 51, 52, 61, 64 and the Powerball was 6
- 1/13/2016: 4, 8, 19, 27, 34 and the Powerball was 10
- 1/09/2016: 16, 19, 32, 34, 57 and the Powerball was 13
- 1/6/2016: 2, 11, 47, 62, 63 and the Powerball was 17
- 1/2/2016: 5, 6, 15, 29, 42 and the Powerball was 10
One thing that is worth noting is that the number 10 was drawn as the red Powerball number on Jan 13, Jan. 2, and Dec. 19. The number 10 occurs quite frequently as a Powerball winning number, having occurred four times since Oct. 4, 2015. The Washington Lottery has a chart that lists Powerball frequent winning numbers, and this is a helpful tool for those who want to ensure they pick the best numbers possible. The chart dates back to Oct. 4, 2015, because that is when the new Powerball 7.0 began. Of the numbers listed on the chart, the most popular drawn numbers for the white balls include 47, 16, 32, 02, 19, 20, 27, 29, 30, 40, 57, 62, 64, 68, and 69.
The most frequently drawn numbers for the red Powerball include 10, 01, 06, 02, 09, 13, 17, 21, and 22.

Powerball has become one of the top lottery games nationwide. It is played in 44 states, the nation’s capital, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. With a redesign to the game in Oct 2015, there are more chances to win non-jackpot Powerball prizes, and jackpots are harder to win. This means they will continue to roll over to hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars like the Jan 13, 2016, jackpot that rolled to $1.58 billion and sparked Powerball fever. With so much interest in lottery games like Mega Millions and Powerball, more people are interested in ways they can get the winning numbers as quickly as possible.
