The German Lotto draws take place twice a week; every Wednesday at 18h25 CET, as well as every Saturday at 18h25 CET. The live draw was accompanied by a broadcast from 1982 to 2013 on ARD TV; due to a lack of viewership, however, announcements are now made on national television before the evening news.
The draw location has also since been changed from Frankfurt to Saarbrücken, Germany. Players who still wish to view the lottery draw live may do so by visiting here and catching a livestream as well as archived draws online.
The biggest jackpot win ever recorded in the German Lotto has been a colossal €45,382,458 won in December 2007 by three fortunate winning ticket holders. The biggest single grand jackpot win was awarded in October 2006 and consisted of an equally astounding €37,688,292!
Lotto 6aus49 draws take place twice a week – Wednesdays at 18h25 CET, as well as Saturdays at 18h25 CET.
Complying with the lottery standard, Lotto 6aus49 offers a guaranteed minimum mid-week jackpot prize of €1,000,000 as well as triple that (€3,000,000) for the weekend lucky draws.
This popular European lottery has a rollover cap of €45 million. If a winner is not crowned by the time that jackpot maximum is reached, the jackpot is automatically evenly distributed among players from the lower tiers. This change was made in September 2020 to increase the lottery winnings of the lower tiers by up to 20%. That means you only have to match the 6 balls ranging from 1-49, and you can walk away with millions of Euros.
