Germany Lotto Lotto 6aus49

The German Lotto is more than 55 years old and is run by German Lotto and Totoblock (DLTB).

The Deutscher Lotto- und Totoblock (DLTB) is a collaborative partnership which is made up of the 16 independent national lottery companies (Lotteriegesellschaften) operating throughout the 16 individual States of Germany.

Each one of these 16 member Lotteriegesellschaften acts independently of each other and from time to time takes charge of running the German Lottery and Totoblock for a period of three years when it takes over the chair and presidency of the DLTB.

The lottery games offered by the DLTB are all approved at national level and sold right across Germany and beyond.

German Lottery games include EuroJackpot, Toto, Keno, Oddset, GlucksSpirale and the most popular lotto game in Germany that we are going to look at here – the German Lotto 6 aus 49...

German Lotto 6 aus 49 Overview

The German Lotto 6aus49 is one of the richest European lottery games and pays out up to 2.8 Billion to lottery winners each year. The German Lotto is a traditional draw-style, lotto jackpot game and is the flagship game offered by the German National Lottery.

The German Lotto 6 aus 49 was first drawn by Lotto Germany on October 9th 1955 and has been the most popular lottery game throughout the whole of Germany since the beginning.

The average jackpot produced by the German Lotto is higher than most National Lotteries at 5.24 Million.

Draws for the German Lotto 6aus49 take place twice per week on Wednesdays at 6.25pm and Saturdays at 7.25pm and the numbers are drawn at Saarland Radio in Saarbrücken.

We are very happy to have given the German Lotto a detailed review and recommend taking a good look at how it works below…

German Lotto 6 aus 49 How It Works

The German Lotto uses what is known as a double matrix of 6/49 plus 1/10 which means that the 6 main numbers are firstly drawn out of a range of numbers from 1 to 49 followed by a Super Number – Super Zahl which is then drawn out of a range of numbers from 0 to 9.

So when you are playing the German Lottery you will need to first select your 6 main numbers from 1 to 49 and then an extra number – the Super Number or Super Zahlfrom 0 to 9.

The Super Number Super Zahl is used to determine prizes for the Jackpot category plus prize categories 3, 5, 7 and 9.

If you match all 6 of the main numbers plus the Super Number drawn then you will be the lucky winner of a first category prize – the German Lotto 6aus49 jackpot.

The Lotto 6aus49 jackpot starts off at 1 Million and for every draw that the top prize is not won it will rollover and the resulting increase will be added onto the jackpot for the following draw making for an even larger jackpot to be won.

In addition to the jackpot itself there are 8 further ways in which you can win on the German Lotto which means that are a huge number of prizes to be won twice every week.

A “Quick-Tipp” facility is available when playing the German Lottery very much the same as the “Lucky Dip” option that is used in the UK National Lottery or Europe’s EuroMillions or the Quick Pick used in nearly all USA Lottery games – which means that you can ask the lottery retailer or computer to randomly select all your Lottery numbers for you.

So playing the German Lotto is simple just select your own numbers or request them to be automatically generated for you by using the computer's or retailer's random number generator.

The cost of each single entry into the German Lotto is 1.
