Lotto Colours

Lotto uses colours to distinguish the numbers and codes drawn each Wednesday and Saturday. The balls for the main draw come in six different colours, grouped in sets of nine or ten numbers. Whereas the 21 raffle codes selected in each draw all begin with one of nine colours e.g. BLUE or RUBY. Here you can get the most up to date statistics on which shades appear most often in the winning lines.

Lotto Ball Colour Statistics

These are the numbers represented by each of the six colours:

Number Range Ball Colour
1 to 9 White
10 to 19 Blue
20 to 29 Pink
30 to 39 Green
40 to 49 Yellow
50 to 59* Purple

*Until the 10th October 2015, Lotto players only had to select numbers from 1 - 49. So data for purple balls is only available after this date when numbers 50 to 59 were added to the draw.

Please note, whilst some players may like to look for trends or use their favourite colours to help choose their numbers, all colours are equally likely to appear in any given draw. If you would like more information on which specific numbers are most common or the most overdue, then visit the Lotto Statistics page.

Lotto Raffle Colour Statistics

Entry into the Millionaire Raffle is included in your Lotto ticket. A code will be printed starting with a four-letter colour followed by an eight-digit number. This table shows how many times each of the colours has appeared in winning raffle codes, and how many times they won a 1 million prize versus a 20,000 prize.
