Lotto Colours

Lotto uses colours to distinguish the numbers drawn each Wednesday and Saturday. The balls for the main draw come in six different colours, grouped in sets of nine or ten numbers. 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

*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.
