People In These States Have The Best Chance Of Winning The Powerball


Powerball has been played since 1992. The game is played in 45 states, as well as Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

While some numbers have a better chance of being winners, it seems where you buy your tickets can also impact your chances.

With the exception of the five states that do not participate, there are four states in which a Powerball jackpot has never been hit: Maine, Mississippi, North Dakota, and Wyoming.

According to Powerball records dating back to 2003, there are also a handful of states that have only had one jackpot-winning ticket purchased there: Arkansas, Montana, Virginia and Washington, as well as the District of Columbia.

More jackpot-winning tickets have been sold in Pennsylvania than in any other state, Powerball records show. A total of 18 winners have been recorded in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, including the most recent jackpot in early August worth $122.4 million.

Florida has sold the second-most jackpot-winning tickets at 16. That includes the largest Powerball jackpot ever, a $1.586 billion pot split between winners in Florida, California and Tennessee in 2016.

Here are the states where the most Powerball jackpots have been hit:

Pennsylvania: 18
Florida: 16
Indiana and New York: 12
California, Missouri and New Jersey: 11
Louisiana: 10

Your odds of winning any prize at all are 1 in 24.9, while your odds at the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million. There are some numbers that could increase your chances at a Powerball prize, though.

Tickets are $2 per play, and drawings occur every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. ET.

Good luck with your next ticket.
