Let the computer choose your numbers — or pick wisely yourself

Most winners in the past have scored the winning numbers by allowing the computer to randomly generate for them! If you do want to choose your own, make sure to space the numbers out; Powerball statistics show that people often choose numbers under 31, while the balls are numbered up to 69. Vary your choices! But keep in mind that the least picked numbers are 61, 60, 65, 66, 67 and 63. This is so tricky. And for goodness sake, don’t pick the numbers from LOST; everyone and their mother does that!
