SPOKANE -- Let’s face it -- the odds of winning the big Powerball Jackpot are not great.

But as the jackpot rises to $550 million dollars (and possibly more), it is hard not to get caught up in Powerball Fever.

If you’re one of those people who prefers picking your own numbers (instead of letting a machine do it for you), wouldn’t it be nice to know the most frequently drawn numbers in the game’s history? Or how about the numbers that win the least often?

KREM 2 News did the research for you.

Most often drawn (first 5 balls)
1.) 56
2.) 59
3.) Tie: 1, 7, 14, 29, 44

Least often drawn (first 5 balls)
1.) Tie: 2, 25, 40
2.) Tie: 12, 21, 27, 37, 38, 52

Most often drawn (Powerball)
1.) 33
2.) 29
3.) Tie: 1, 5, 6, 13, 14, 18, 23, 35

And the following numbers have never been drawn as the winning Powerball (How sad!): 9, 15, 17, and 31
   
So there you have it! (You can thank us later)
