The latest Hot Numbers for the USA Powerball lottery are updated here after each draw has taken place. The numbers are those that are drawn the most often, based on records of all previous draws.
There is no guarantee that the numbers will change between any two draws, as they are only likely to change when a number has been drawn fewer or more times than another.
Calculated in a similar way, the Cold Numbers for USA Powerball are those that have been drawn the least often and that are therefore seen as the most overdue to be drawn in the next (or an upcoming) draw.
As lotteries are a game of chance, there is no way for any number to truly be 'overdue', as previous draws have no effect on the outcome of any future draw.

These numbers will be updated three times each week, after the Monday, Wednesday and Saturday draws have taken place.
