**Hot numbers**are lotto numbers that frequently win within a short period like a month or shorter.

**Top numbers**are referred to as all-time hot numbers that cover all the actual results. In some cases, covering all the actual results may not be necessary for the reason that the significance of the data remain the same or just slightly changes. In such case, the all-time hot numbers may cover only a few years.

Hot numbers that cover a longer period like a year or two slightly change from year to year. The ranking of the numbers may go up or down but rarely flank to the bottom or peak straight high. Once a number belonged to the top hottest numbers, it remained on top even if its ranking changes up or down. Likewise, a cold number remains in the bottom 10 from year to year even if its ranking slightly increases or decreases. What is transient are the numbers around the median. These numbers may be in the top 15 in the previous year but may be in the bottom 15 in the next year.
