It's been quite a while since anyone has matched all six numbers in the Powerball game, giving Minnesota Lottery players a shot at big money.

Wednesday night's Powerball jackpot is an estimated $1.09 Billion or a one-time payout of $527 Million.

Experts at Lottery Geeks, a news publication for anything related to the Lottery, analyzed the numbers that have appeared in all previous draws across Powerball, Mega Millions, Cash4Life, Lotto America and Lucky for Life. It turns out that 10 is the luckiest number, meaning it is drawn the most, and 65 is the least lucky number (kind of).

You could use the same sequence of numbers in every draw for the rest of your life and never win a cent, but this list of lucky numbers might just win you millions.
