Irish Lotto Hot and Cold Balls Review & Preview


Note: *The following article is purely for fun. It is based on individual opinions and does not constitute advice. The drawing of lottery numbers is entirely random. Please always gamble responsibly.


Seasons change, the temperature cools, but the Irish Lotto reliably continues to select the hot lotto balls - every Wednesday and Saturday, 52 weeks a year!

With summer coming to a close, and the autumnal breeze sweeping through, we thought it would be apt to review the hottest and coldest numbers over the past few weeks.

Hot Numbers

The three hottest numbers over the previous four weeks of draws are as follows:

  • 33 (drawn 7 times)
  • 47 (drawn 7 times)
  • 29 (drawn 6 times)

Fun facts:

  • The payout for correctly selecting all three numbers coming out in an Irish Lotto draw is a whopping 700/1* at Betfred!
  • Each of the three hottest numbers above is odd. If you were to bet on all six numbers being odd, you would get odds of 50/1! How odd!

Cold Numbers

The three coldest numbers struggling to make it into the warmth over the last four weeks are these:

  • 17 (drawn once)
  • 22 (drawn once)
  • 25 (drawn once)

Fun Facts:

They may be cold right now, but the number 22 and 25 both appeared on the third biggest Irish Lotto win of all time. There was one lucky winner of the €16.39million jackpot prize way back on 23rd October, 2010. The full winning ticket was: 15, 16, 22, 25, 31, 32, and a bonus ball of 37. Oh what halycon days!

Is it a good idea to include hot or cold numbers on your ticket?

We all have our superstitions! It could be birthdays, addresses, significant dates - they all make as valid reasons to include them into your lotto ticket as hot or cold numbers. The truth is, the lotto is random. There is evidence to support betting on hot or cold numbers.

However, those more superstitiously minded may feel compelled to include them. For example, hot numbers could appeal to those who like to follow the trends - much like a horse on a winning streak. Alternatively, the perennial underdog backer may prefer to back the cold numbers - every dog has its day, after all!

How often does the Irish Lotto take place?

Get your bets on every Wednesday and Saturday at 8pm. Remember - you just need to pick your numbers from between 1 and 47.
