How many Powerball numbers are drawn?
7 winning numbers plus the Powerball are drawn every Thursday night. These numbers are drawn from two barrels with draw officials and a government supervisor present. The first barrel holds 35 balls numbered 1 to 35 and the second barrel holds 20 balls numbered 1 to 20.
