Math experts will tell you it doesn’t matter which numbers you pick in the huge Powerball lottery jackpot that’s up for grabs Wednesday night. They’ll say the odds are exactly the same for each number to get drawn, because the selection process is random and there’s a precise number of balls in the lottery bin.

However, if you’re looking for some type of “edge” to your Powerball or Mega Millions strategy, it can’t hurt to take a peek at the numbers that have been drawn the most often during the past six years.

A quick reminder: In early October 2015, the main pool of balls in the Powerball lottery was expanded from 59 to 69, and the number of red “Powerballs” were reduced from 35 to 26. Nevertheless, the already astronomical odds of winning the big jackpot got even tougher. (The odds of matching all six numbers are 292,201,338 to 1 for a single $2 ticket.)

Message in a bottle discovered decades after it floated away

SPIRIT LAKE, Iowa (KCAU) – Despite not seeing a single deer, one Iowa man says he had one of his “most memorable” hunting trips after stumbling across a bottle containing a decades-old message.

Ross Bruns was hoping for a memorable hunt, along the shores of Saylorville Lake near Des Moines.

“I told my wife it was my last hunt of the year,” said Bruns. “Came out here that day and didn’t actually see a single deer, but it will probably be one of the most memorable hunts I have the rest of my life.”

Most memorable? How could that be? The answer is found a couple hundred miles away in the dining room of Janet Otto and the stacks of binders her late husband Jim, the father of four kids, cataloged beginning in 1976.

“Even though he has been gone so many years, people still say his name and want to find out who he is and who his family is and I think he would really appreciate that part of it,” said son Doug Otto.

Long before his death in 2012, Jim started sending messages in a bottle.
