You might think that you did, but it turns out that it was simply an optical illusion caused by angles and lights.
Those watching last night's Lotto draw thought they saw the number 33 and 38 in the same ball - with a number of people calling it out as either a glitch or something like a fix. Here's the ball in question, just so you know.

Just to make it even clearer, the National Lottery put out a statement this afternoon that pretty much rubbished claims it was a fix. "A brief reflection of light during filming caused an illusion and some players to think there were two numbers on ball 38. 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."
So that's what that guy is there for. Huh.
