The Most Frequent Numbers in Lottery Draws

These are Australia’s Hottest Lotto Numbers!

If you often play the lottery, you probably noticed some numbers just seem to appear in every other draw! These frequently drawn numbers are known as hot numbers and they are used by many experienced lottery players due to their likelihood to be drawn – statistically speaking.

Check out the list of the most, and the least, frequently drawn numbers in each Australian lottery!

These are Australia’s Hottest Lotto Numbers!

Winning the lottery is a matter of luck: numbers are draw randomly, which means that each and every number has the same odds of being drawn.

However, some numbers have a much higher frequency of being drawn than others and, therefore, are called the hot numbers. That’s why some players like using hot numbers in their games as, statistically speaking, they seem to be more likely to be drawn than others.

But this is just one side of the coin. Some other players like using the least frequent numbers (or cold numbers) instead, by simple logic: if every number has the same probability of being drawn, the numbers that haven’t been drawn enough will probably appear anytime now!

So, which side are you? Below you will find the 10 most frequent numbers, and the 10 least frequent numbers in Monday Lotto, Wednesday Lotto, Tuesday Lotto, Thursday Lotto and Saturday Lotto’s draws. 

 

Monday Lotto: Most & Least Frequent Numbers

These are Australia’s hottest lotto numbers!

 

*Number of times it came up on draws from January 2002 to February 2017

Didn’t the number 13 stand for bad luck? Not for Monday Lotto players! It appeared 84 times in past draws, which makes it the hottest number for this lottery.

The number 36, though, seems to be a difficult one to be drawn. It made only 51 appearances so far in Monday Lotto’s draws, being, therefore, the coldest number for this lottery.

 

Tuesday Lotto: Most & Least Frequent Numbers

These are Australia’s hottest lotto numbers!

 

*Number of times it came up on draws from October 2005 to February 2017

It seems odd numbers love to make an appearance in Tuesday Lotto’s draws. From the 10 hottest numbers for this lottery, only one is an even number (2). The cold numbers list, however, has a perfect balance between evens and odds.

The number which appeared the least in draws since 2005 is 10, whereas the most frequently drawn number of all is number 33.

 

Wednesday Lotto: Most & Least Frequent Numbers

These are Australia’s hottest lotto numbers!

 

 

*Number of times it came up on draws from January 2002 to February 2017

If you like playing lotto on Wednesdays, probably the number 32 will sound very familiar to you: it has been drawn 132 (coincidence?) times until today. The number 9, however, is the least frequent number, having appeared only 86 times in the last 12 years.

 

Thursday Lotto: Most & Least Frequent Numbers

These are Australia’s hottest lotto numbers!

 

*Number of times it came up on draws from May 1996 to February 2017

One of the most frequent number combinations in lotteries is a sequence of round dozens, like 10, 20, 30… Funnily enough, though, in Thursday Lotto these numbers made it to the top 10 list of the least drawn numbers of all times!

And number 40, although not featured in the 10 coldest numbers list above, would be – believe or not -  our number 11, with 122 appearances in draws.

 

Saturday Lotto: Most & Least Frequent Numbers

These are Australia’s hottest lotto numbers!

 

*Number of times it came up on draws from May 1996 to February 2017

The oldest lottery in Australia has the number 1 as its hottest number, having appeared 278 times in draws over its almost 36 years of existence.

In the cold numbers list, we have again another sequence: the numbers 43, 44 and 45 have appeared respectively 215, 191 and 209, which makes them the three least drawn numbers in Saturday Lotto’s history.

Even though many players like using hot or cold numbers in their lottery combinations, remember the only real way of increasing your odds of winning the lottery is playing frequently.

You can use hot, cold, random numbers or even your lucky numbers of always – the important thing is to start making your own luck right now, by betting with Lottoland!
