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.

How are your favourite numbers faring in the match-up of hot and cold numbers in the Bet 49's? Are your superstitious digits flaming hot? Or are they shivering to the bone?

Checking the run-good of your regular numbers may be mathematically useless - but since when was picking out the lotto grid anything other than a hunch?

Here's a look at the latest hot and cold balls from the 49's?

Hot Balls Over The Last Four Weeks

  • 28 - Drawn 15 times
  • 20 - Drawn 12 times
  • 38 - Drawn 12 Times

Fun fact: Despite reigning in the most recent draws, the above three numbers rank pretty low down on the all-time leaderboard. The number 28 is the most commonly drawn from those three numbers - coming in at joint 23rd, having been drawn a total of 2,333 times.

Cold Balls Over The Last Four Weeks

  • 42 - Drawn three times
  • 49 - Drawn four times
  • 2 - Drawn four times

The numbers 49 and 2 may have only come out one more time than 42 over the last month - but over the year, there is a clear winner. Since 21st October, 2019, the number 49 has been drawn a total of 83 times. The numbers 2 and 42, meanwhile, are level at 78 times apiece.

Is There Any Benefit To Knowing The Hot And Cold Numbers?

As we alluded to at the start of this article - choosing numbers based on hot or cold numbers may itch a superstitious scratch. However, there are no tangible benefits in selecting your numbers based on how often they appear.
