Back in 2000, he was still one of the human continuity presenters of the LOTTO draw.

Instead of numbers just showing up on the screen, the show had people handling the balls: then calling out the numbers.

The live LOTTO draws today

Live National Lottery draws might have changed a little.

These days, you can still watch the LOTTO numbers – but there’s no continuity producer involved like the “older days” of the draw!

Draws can be seen at Ituba’s YouTube channel, or you can check the results after the draw from the Ithuba website.
