"The Lotto 6 aus 45 from sterreichische lotterien - Lotto Austria"
Current Jackpot € 2,800,000
The Austria Lotto company – sterreichische lotterien – can trace its history back to July 2nd 1985 when the Toto Lottery Planning Company was formed with a view to introduce lottery games throughout Austria.
On June 11th 1986 legal concession was granted by the Austrian government to proceed with the introduction of the Austria Lotto games and the Austrian Lottery Toto Company was born.
The first Lotto Austria games to be introduced were the Letter Lottery, Small Number Lottery, Class Lottery and the SportToto followed by the Lotto 6 aus 45.
On June 20th 1991, the Austrian Lottery Toto Company m.b.H. officially changed its name to the Austrian Lotteries Company m.b.H. and it is this company – sterreichische lotterien – that operates and administers all of the Austria Lotto games today.
Games offered by the Lotto Austria include the EuroMillions – EuroMillionen – Toto, Bingo, Joker, ToiToiToi, Zahlenlotto, Rubbellos, Brieflos, Klassenlotterie and the Austria Lotto flagship game that we are going to look at here – the Lotto 6 aus 45…
The Austria Lotto 6 aus 45 was first introduced by sterreichische lotterien back in September 1986 – not long after the very first games by Lotto Austria were launched earlier that same year.
The Austria Lotto 6aus45 is a traditional draw-style, lotto jackpot game and is the flagship game offered by the Austrian Lotteries Company m.b.H – sterreichische lotterien.
The Lotto 6aus45 jackpot starts off at € 1 Million and for every draw that the Austria Lotto produces no jackpot winners it will rollover – and the increase in the top prize will then be added onto the jackpot for the next draw – making for some larger top prizes to be won each week until a winner is eventually found.
Draws for the Austrian Lotto take place twice per week on Wednesdays at 6.30pm and Sundays at 6.00pm CET.
We are pleased to have reviewed the Lotto Austria 6aus45 and would recommend taking a good look at how it works below…
The Austria Lotto 6aus45 uses what is known as a matrix of 6/45 which means that 6 winning lottery numbers are drawn out of a number range from 1 to 45 .
This is then followed by a seventh number which is then also drawn – known as the Additional number or Zusatzzahl – and is used to determine prizes on winning levels 2, 4, 6, 8, 9 and 10.
So – when you are playing the Austria Lotto you will first need to select your 6 main numbers out of a range of numbers from 1 to 45.
If you match all 6 of the main numbers drawn then you will be a winner of the first division prize – the Austria Lotto jackpot.
In addition to the jackpot itself – there are 9 further ways in which you can win on the Austria Lotto – which means that are a thousands of prizes to be won twice every week for anyone who plays with sterreichische lotterien.
A QuickTipp facility is available when playing the Austria Lotto very much the same as the Lucky Dip option that is used in the UK National Lottery and Europe’s EuroMillions or the Quick Pick used in nearly all USA Lottery games. This means that you can ask the lottery retailer or computer to randomly select all your Lotterien numbers for you.
So – playing the Austrian Lotto is simple – just select your own numbers or request them to be automatically chosen for you by using the computer or retailer's random number generator.
As with the majority of lottery games around the world – previously only citizens living in Austria were allowed to play in any of the Austria Lotto games including the Lotto 6aus45 – you used to have to purchase your Austria Lotto tickets from an authorized retailer based in Austria.
Today however – this is not a problem as there are various online lottery ticket retailers such as TheLotter who are both authorized and genuine – you are able to select your Austria Lotto numbers online and purchase your sterreichische lotterien tickets from anywhere in the world.
This is great news, of course, if you live outside of Austria and want to play the Austria Lotto and ensure your entry into the next draw or just would like to have the convenience and ease of being able to buy lottery tickets online.
You will need to be 18 years of age to be eligible to purchase a ticket for any of the Lotto Austria games including the 6aus45.
