The Powerball jackpot has gotten up to $800 million—the largest U.S. lottery prize ever—giving you and your coworkers something to talk about besides how cold it's gotten. Every time the prize on the lotto gets this big, tons of people play, and the impossible odds get even more impossible (1 in 292.2 million, in fact).
However, if you're going to play, you might as well keep this in mind: some lottery numbers are luckier than others, historically. Though every number theoretically has an equal chance of being picked, some numbers happen to get picked more often than others. It couldn't hurt to play them, probably, because the lottery is basically magic, right?
