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.

Are you a lotto player that loves the hottest ‘trends’? Do you make your choices on the fly and dream of that spectacular pay off? Or are you a circumspect player? Do you like to study the ‘form’ and results to work out the colder digits - the ones conspicuous by their absence - in the hope they show up in the next draw?

However you choose your lucky tickets, we've covered the hot and cold number analysis. Read our full review below if hot or cold numbers float your boat. Remember though, the drawing of lottery numbers is completely random.

Bet49's Hot Numbers

We have poured over the numbers from the last four weeks and have found the following qualify for the hot status:

  • 49 - Drawn 15 times
  • 41 - Drawn 15 times
  • 43 - Drawn 14 times

The naughty forties have been dominating the temperature scales - will they continue to burn brightly?

Bet49's Cold Numbers

The numbers keeping cool in the fridge and appearing least frequently over the last four weeks are as follows:

  • 17 - drawn three times
  • 12 - drawn two times
  • 9 - drawn two times

The low numbers have not been having much luck recently - but maybe the tide is turning?

What Are Hot And Cold Numbers?

The naming conventions should be clue enough, but in case you need reminding, the reference of hot balls and cold balls is the number of times they appear over recent draws.

For example, were a number to appear in every Bet49s draw over the last two weeks, they would be called hot numbers. If a digit finds it challenging to roll out over recent draws, they are known as cold numbers.

Is There Any Advantage To Betting On Hot Numbers And Cold Numbers?

The disappointing part for hot hopers and cold chiefs is that mathematically, the hot and cold trends make zero statistical difference! You are just as likely to draw the coldest five numbers as you are the hottest five numbers - the number of times they appear simply represents a statistical anomaly.
