Lotto’s $30 Million* Megadraw is on the 29th of December and Australians are stampeding to secure their entry into the draw that creates the most millionaires! ^

Whether you have a ritual of marking your entry with loved ones birth dates, anniversaries, and ages, or you prefer to randomise it every time and get a QuickPick, the numbers matter!

While Megadraw is a game of chance through a random barrel draw and every number has an equal chance of being drawn, we can reveal the ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ numbers drawn during the past five Megadraw events.

From the main barrel, where six winning numbers are drawn from 45, the ‘hot’ number is 37, which has been drawn four times out of the five draws.

The numbers 9, 24, 11, and 41 are all competing for second place on our list of ‘hot’ numbers. All have been drawn three times out of the five draws.

At the same time, there are some numbers that have barely made an appearance during past draws.

These include the numbers 19, 10, 8, 15, and 26, which have all been drawn once. However, 19 is definitely the coldest number as it hasn’t been drawn since 2010!

Now you know the ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ Megadraw numbers of 2018 will they impact your entry in the draw? Beat the stampede, get your entry in-store, online or via the Lott app!
