The Time That One Lotto Ball Appeared To Show Two Different Numbers

Irish National Lottery officials have said that a “trick of the light” or an “illusion” that was caused by the way the light hit the lotto ball at an angle is the cause of a lotto ball that appeared to show two different numbers during a live TV draw last week.

During Saturday night’s Lotto Plus 1 draw a viewer claimed that one of the lotto balls was showing both the numbers 33 and 38 nd even sent a screenshot to the lottery officials and posted his screenshot on Twitter. His Twitter post went viral and many started to say that the viewer was indeed right.

“Strange what’s happening, is it ball 38 or 33?” questioned one of the viewers.

“Well it was 38 then magically changed to 33,” stated another viewer. “I bet that ball has been manufactured wrong and it has two different numbers on it and nobody even realized until it was to late,” another viewer tweeted.

The Irish Lottery posted a statement on their Twitter account saying that studio lighting is to blame for the problem and that it was nothing more than a “trick of the light”.

“A brief reflection of light during filming caused an illusion and some players to think there were two numbers on ball 38,” they said in their tweet.

“This was not the case. “The weight and size of all Lotto balls, and the numbers, are strictly checked in advance of each draw. “This process, as well as the draw itself, is independently observed by our auditors KPMG.”
