Germany - Lotto Information

Germany Lotto offers 8 prize divisions and two weekly drawings, which gives players great chances of becoming winners in the popular national lottery. Players are required to choose from a guess range of 1-49 for the regular numbers and 0-9 for the additional number. Only one additional number can be chosen, and it will apply to all the lines purchased.

German Lotto History

The Deutscher Lotto-und Totoblock (DLTB) created the Germany Lotto in 1974, and it continues as Germany’s most popular lottery today. The lottery is run by consortium of German lotteries that preside over different regions of the country or specific lottery formats. Each organization governs the DLTB for three-year periods. Germany Lotto’s record jackpot, €45.4 million, was won in 2007.

Germany Lotto Rules

Beginning May 4th, 2013, Germany Lotto will be instituting two new rule changes. The first rule change is the exclusion of the bonus number from the gaming format. Instead, it will be replaced by the "Super Number". Players will still choose six regular numbers between one and 49 but they will now choose an additional number between zero and nine. This new game formula will increase the chances of winning since the super number consists of only the numbers zero through nine.The second rule change will be the introduction of a ninth prize category that requires players to match two regular numbers plus the super number. This means that moderately higher jackpots are possible and the winning odds are increased! Compare the German Lotto with over 70 world lotteries on our lottery info pages.

Winning the German Lotto

To win the German Lotto jackpot, match 6 numbers from the guess range of 49 numbers and the additional number, super number, between 0 and 9. Matching between 2 and 6 numbers and the super number will qualify players for the eight secondary prize categories. All prizes are paid in one cash lump sum and tax-free.
