After working in the gambling industry for over a decade, Oliver spotted an opportunity to setup a resource for lottery bettors. CompareTheLotto.com was founded in 2014, with Number49s.co.za following shortly after. The aim is to find the best odds, offers and information for lottery bettors in South Africa.

Another week, another two rounds of the famous 49's have come and gone! Did the hot and cold number trends continue? Or were there some new digits on the block?

What Are Hot And Cold Numbers?

There are many techniques in picking your lotto numbers. Whether they are select dates, such as your birthday or shirt numbers of your favourite footballers - there are hundreds of thousands of combinations from all sorts of inspirations.

There are those, though, that prefer a statistical approach to finding a path to life-changing wins.

Hot numbers are digits that have been frequently drawn over a recent period. Conversely, cold numbers are digits that haven't made the cut more recently.

There may be limited practical knowledge in knowing the hot and cold numbers, but tracking the 49's results can scratch a mathematic itch that some in South Africa might have. It can also give you a broader sense of how many times your numbers appear over a more extended period.

Here are the latest hot and cold balls:

Hot Balls Over The Last Four Weeks

Please note, this does not include the booster ball draw.

  • 48 - Drawn 16 times
  • 18 - Drawn 12 times
  • 41 - Drawn 12 times

Fun fact: In the 49's all-time rankings, the number 18 is closest to the top of all three hot numbers. It has been drawn a whopping 2,397 times to take it to make it the 7th most-popular digit in 49's history.

Cold Balls Over The Last Four Weeks

Please note, this does not include the booster ball draw.

  • 11 - Drawn three times
  • 27 - Drawn four times
  • 32 - Drawn four times

Fun Fact: The number 32 continues its barren sequence. It has been drawn the fourth-fewest number of times in the all-time rankings - racking up just 2,273 rollouts.
