Lotto 6aus49 is a German lottery with draws every Wednesday and Saturday night. There is always a multimillion-Euro jackpot up for grabs, and the top prize can quickly grow when it is not won. It has even been known to climb higher than €40 million.
To win the jackpot, you must match all seven numbers, but prizes are available for matching as few as two main numbers plus the Superzahl.
In the event that there is no jackpot winner, the top prize will roll over to the following draw. This facility has enabled jackpots to climb to significant amounts, with the largest jackpot to date being worth €45,382,458 and finally shared between three ticket holders in December 2007. The jackpot can now reach a maximum of €50 million.
German Lotto has a total of nine prize tiers, each one known as a ‘Class’. The following table shows all the different ways to win and the odds for each one.
