Unsure how to choose your numbers? Lots of 49’s bettors like to pick either numbers that have been drawn the most frequently (*hot* numbers) recently or the least frequently recently (*cold* numbers)...Read More

Our Hot & Cold balls are based on the results of both the Lunchtime and Teatime results combined.

Hot balls are balls that have appeared the most frequently in recent draws. You can use our filters above to view hot balls for the past week, month or even year.

Cold balls are balls that have appeared the least frequently in recent draws. You can use our filters above to view hot balls for the past week, month or even year.

Every ball in each draw has an equal chance of being drawn. This means hot balls and cold balls are just as likely to be drawn. Users that decide to bet based on hot or cold don’t have any more chance of winning than picking random numbers.

There are a few options:

**‘Quick Pick’**: You select how many balls you want to bet on, then the bookmaker randomly selects numbers for you. Most bookmakers offer this functionality, or you can use our random number selector.**Select Your Own**: You can select your own balls, just by picking random numbers.**Regular Numbers**: Lottery players often have their numbers that they play each week until they win. The catch with this method is you feel obliged to play every single week for fear of missing the big win.

It is not possible to increase your chance of winning. However, bookmakers offer different odds on the 49’s - this means you might be able to win more for the same bet depending on the bookmaker you select. Compare the 49’s odds of UK bookmakers here. Also, many bookmakers offer free bets - see our free bets page.
