"German Lottery - Lotto 6aus49 Game Changes taking place May 2013"
The Germany Lottery flagship game - Lotto 6 aus 49 - is being upgraded in May 2013 with the aim of producing larger prizes, providing players more opportunities of winning the lottery in addition to offering even better odds of winning. 3 important Lotto 6aus49 changes will take place beginning with the draw on Saturday 4th May 2013 further improving this already highly popular German Lottery game which will give people even more incentive to play on both Wednesdays and Saturdays each week. Firstly - let's have a quick look at the German Lotto 6 aus 49 alterations that will occur...
Now - to expand on these German Lotto changes and look at exactly what they mean to players both in Germany and abroad...
2 x Additional Numbers replaced by Super Number Only
Basically prior to the Lotto 6 aus 49 changes on May 4th 2013 - 2 additional numbers were drawn for each game as well as the 6 main lottery numbers - these were the Bonus Number and the Super Number. The Bonus Number has been dropped and it will now just be the Super Number - between 0 and 9 - that will be drawn for each game. This means that as well as choosing 6 main numbers from 1 to 49 - players will also need to choose a Super Number between 0 to 9. The removal of the Bonus Number from the Lotto 6 aus 49 game and the retention of the Super Number means that the odds of winning the German Lotto have just got even better.
Introduction of a 9th Prize Category
There will now be even more prizes to be won on the Lotto 6aus49 due to an extra prize level being added to the 8 eight categories already part of its game structure.
This new 9th prize level gives players yet another chance of winning by correctly matching just 2 of the main numbers plus the Super number - meaning that there will be more prizes to be won than ever before on the Lotto 6aus49.
Better Odds of Winning
As a result of the addition of the 9th prize tier - the odds of winning the Lotto 6 aus 49 have been increased and there is also the chance of even bigger jackpots being produced.
Price Increase to €1.00
The German Lottery - Lotto 6aus49 - has not seen a price increase since the year 2000. To cover the costs of the extra prize division, increase the winning odds and to encourage the possibility of higher jackpot figures the Deutsche Lotto und Totoblock - who run the Germany Lottery and the website lotto.de - have implemented a small price increase from 75 cents to €1.00 per ticket entry.
