As is the case with all statistical numbers, the Cold Numbers are also not guaranteed to be drawn in any future lottery game, as they are simply the outcome of number analysis.

The way that you claim a Lotto 6 prize depends on the way that you purchased your ticket, as each selling organisation has different payment methods. However you chose to play, you have one year from the day after a draw takes place to claim your winnings. This is because prizes will not be able to be paid until the day following a draw.
Winnings will be automatically deposited into your player account within a week of a draw taking place. When you create your online account you will need to provide your banking details to be able to purchase any tickets.
If you win a prize on a ticket purchased through the website of a financial institution in Japan, your winnings will be automatically transferred to the account you used when purchasing your tickets.
If you played via an ATM and were lucky enough to win a prize, any winnings will be transferred automatically to the bank account that you used to purchase your tickets.
