With that much money on the line, everyone starts looking for that winning combination of lucky Powerball numbers to play.

There are some numbers that historically have been picked the most. You can check those numbers out HERE. But if you’re looking for a different way to pick your numbers, we’re going to help you out. We’ve listed some of your favorite artists. Pick one, check out significant numbers in their lives, play them, and cross your fingers.

How do you pick your lucky Powerball numbers?

It seems that everyone has their own way of deciding their numbers. A lot of people go by the easiest, the “quick pick” which picks the random numbers for you. Then there are other people who put great care in picking specific numbers. They use their anniversary date, their kid’s birthdays, and even numbers that come to them in a dream. Apparently about 70-80% of people do “quick picks.” About the same percentage of people who win use “quick picks.” So I guess it doesn’t matter which you decide to do. However you pick your tickets, it’s always fun to dream about winning Powerball. You never know if you could be the lucky person to buy that $2 dollar ticket.
