Lotto 6 aus 49
Lotto 6 aus 49 is Germany’s longest-running and most popular national lottery game, being one of several played across the country.
Entry costs €1.00, withdraws taking place twice weekly on Wednesdays at 18:25 local time and on Saturdays at 19:25.
To enter Lotto, choose six numbers between 1 and 49. There is also a “Super Ball” number that is always chosen at random, plus the “Quick Tip” option to randomly generate the six main numbers.
Players can also enter the Spiel 77 and Super 6 games. Each Lotto ticket has a random seven-digit number printed onto it, with the last digit corresponding to the randomly selected Super Ball number. For players entering Spiel 77 and Super 6, the final digit becomes the Spiel 77 number, with the last six digits being used for Super 6.
Entry to Spiel 77 is an extra €2.50, while Super 6 is an extra €1.25.
Lotto offers a minimum guaranteed jackpot of €1 million for its Wednesday draw, and €3 million for its Saturday draw.
While there is no jackpot cap, there is a rollover cap of 13 draws. If the Lotto jackpot is not won after the 13th draw, the prize rolls down to the next tier.
The biggest Lotto jackpots in history are:
- €45.4 million on December 5, 2007.
- €37.7 million on October 7, 2006.
- €35 million on February 7, 2009.

History of Lotto
The first Lotto draw took place on October 9, 1955, making it one of the world’s longest-running lottery games.
Until June 1986, players chose seven numbers from a total of 38, which was then updated to the six-from-49 format still in use today.
