How good would it be winning $38 million dollars?!

Like, you could actually afford to buy the iPhone X!

A sweet $38 million is up for grabs TONIGHT, which will be the country's second-biggest Lotto draw, following a $44m prize won in November 2016.

We're going to help you out with those cash money dreams, with this advice:


by giving you the best number to pick for the Powerball. 

According to Lotto data, one number has proved luckier than others over the past 968 draws.

Since 2001 the number '2' has topped the tower 123 times.

It's followed by "1", which has been drawn 113 times and "3", which has been drawn 112 times.

But if you want to actually pocket that $38 mill, then avoid 2 Powerball numbers: "9" and "10" score as the worst, being drawn 57 times or less.


Florida man, Richard Lustig, who has won several grand prizes in Lotto, has written a book called Learn How to Increase your Chances of Winning the Lottery.

His advice to everyone rushing out for tonight's grand prize is simple: Don't buy quick picks, where a computer picked numbers for you.

"I play my own numbers, I play them regularly and I never miss a draw and again that's what increases your chances," he said.

"Seventy per cent of our players choose randomly."

Good luck and hopefully you wake up a millionaire!
