The Mega Millions sits at $792 million, the Powerball's at $559 million, and these are the ten luckiest lottery numbers of all time.

By luckiest numbers of all time, I mean the ten numbers historically drawn more than all the others.

It's been several weeks since anyone has matched all six numbers in either the Mega Millions or Powerball games, giving Minnesota Lottery players a shot at big money.

Tonight's Powerball drawing is worth an estimated $539 million dollars, or a one-time cash payout of $273 million. Friday's Mega Millions jackpot has soared to an estimated $792 million dollars, or a one-time payout of $382 million.

Experts at Lottery Geeks, a news publication for anything related to the Lottery, analyzed the numbers that have appeared in all previous draws across Powerball, Mega Millions, Cash4Life, Lotto America and Lucky for Life. It turns out that 10 is the luckiest number, meaning it is drawn the most, and 65 is the least lucky number (kind of).

You could use the same sequence of numbers in every draw for the rest of your life and never win a cent, but this list of lucky numbers might just win you millions.
