STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Trying to choose those lucky Powerball numbers and put them to the test Wednesday night?

Some statistics might help.

In order to win the current Powerball jackpot of $620 million, a player must pick five numbers from a pool of 69 and one Powerball from a separate pool of 56. There are also eight other tiers available in each draw for smaller prizes. Matching the Powerball number alone could net you a big financial gain.

The next drawing is Wednesday at 10:59 p.m.

In the most recent drawing, which took place last weekend, the following numbers were drawn: 15, 54, 57, 62 and 69. The Power Play number was 2 and the Powerball number was 23. On that date, the prize was $476,700,000.
