What is the German Lotto?

The German Lotto is the biggest and most popular lottery in Germany and draws take place twice a week on Wednesday’s and Saturday’s. Known as the ‘6 aus 49’, and being available since 1974, the German Lotto is managed by the Deutscher Lotto-und Totoblock (DLTB) which runs the German Lotto in a partnership called the Lotteriegesellschaften. Since 1974 it’s managed by the DLTB but in fact the German Lotto has been in existence since the mid 1950s.

Draws for the Lotto 6 aus 49 (German Lotto) take place twice a week, and jackpots can roll over many times if not won, meaning more exciting opportunities to become extremely wealthy are yours for the taking.

How to Play

  • In total there are seven numbers that are drawn. 
  • Players need to first select six numbers from a pool of 1-49 which are known as the main numbers.
  • There is an additional number (the seventh number) which is called the Superzahl (Super Number). This number is drawn from a selection of 0-9. The Superzahl has to be matched along with all six of the main numbers to be able to win the German Lotto jackpot.

Lower Tier Prizes

Players are able to win significant amounts on lower tier prizes, even as low as matching two main numbers plus the Superzahl.

As with other lotteries, if there is no jackpot winner the top prize will roll over to the following draw and this is where the excitement gets even more fever pitched.

German Lotto has a total of nine prize tiers which are as follows:

Numbers Matched Prize Tier
6 balls + Superball Jackpot
6 balls 2nd
5 balls + Superball 3rd
5 balls 4th
4 balls + Superball 5th
4 balls 6th
3 balls + Superball 7th
3 balls 8th
2 balls + Superball 9th

Now is the perfect time to join the German winning spirit by purchasing a ticket into this game!

One only has to take a look back at an old German stamp from 1957, created to inform people how to win the German lottery, translated it reads, "Playing with numbers in the lotto with perseverance leads to the target."

If Götze can hit target – then so can you!

Its very pleasing to hear that. We welcome it and we are very humbled. Indeed with Playhugelottos.com everything is under one roof so much so that its choice assorted. I certainly wonder if the winning of World Cup by Germany and that Play hugelottos.com has a new baby (German Lotto) it would have been a pleasure if you would do as you traditionally do to offer a voucher to us players so that we celebrate with the winning Germany team and celebrating with prayhugelottos.com for a new baby born. I wish the Germany lotto every success. Thanks

Is it a coincidence that German Lotto is introduced as part of the suite of International Lotto's on offer just after Germany won the world Cup? If so the starting amount in my view should at least be fifty times that of 1 Million Euros.Come on Germany Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
