History of the Lotto6aus49?

Commonly known as the German Lotto, this popular lottery game is based in Europe with its roots firmly entrenched in Germany. A brief history on this lottery is that it was first played in 1955 and later joined the Deutscher Lotto-und Totoblock (DLTB) upon its 1974 establishment. This well-established lottery game has gained a reputation of being the most popular lotto game in Germany, due to its straight-forward and simple game play, nine prize tiers and impressive jackpot prizes; not to mention the annual payout of over €5 billion in prizes!


How to play the lottery

How do I play Lotto6aus49?

This lotto game makes use of the popular 6/49 draw format, but with a slight twist – players need to select 6 main numbers out of a range of numbered 1-49 balls. The ‘slight twist’ here being that, once the main draw has concluded, another draw is conducted for a single ‘bonus ball’ known as the Super Number or ‘Superzahl’ from a separate numbered 0-9 range of balls. The jackpot is won if a player matches all 6 numbers as well as the bonus Superzahl number (which gets selected by the player via the Play Block).

A bonus Superzahl match increases a player’s chance of a placing or even winning, in as many as nine of the game’s prize tiers. To qualify for the lowest prize tier placement, a minimum match of 2 correct numbers, as well as the correct bonus Superzahl number, is required.

Additional Information

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. Browse our German Lotto 6aus49 Resource Centre for more information on playing the Powerball lottery on
