Austria Lotto Winning Odds Are So Good, You Have Got to Play!

With so many exciting European lotteries to choose from, you might not have considered playing Austria Lotto. That’s a shame because the Austria Lotto winning odds are so good that players tend to win a lot of prizes. We know this very well because one of our players - a chauffeur from Moscow - won an €824,000 Austria Lotto jackpot in February 2016. You could be next!

About Austria Lotto

Austria Lotto, officially known as Lotto 6 aus 45 (Lotto “6 out of 45“), is Austria’s favourite lottery game. The simple “6 out of 45” format is perfect not only for Austrians, but also for lottery players everywhere. This format results in a relatively small number of top prizes, generous mid-tier prizes, and many low-tier winnings. Austria Lotto drawings are held twice every week, on Wednesdays and Sundays, and the minimum jackpot is guaranteed at €1 million.

The very first Austria Lotto draw took place on 7 September 1986. Austria Lotto’s record jackpot was awarded on 21 November 2018 when a single player won a jackpot of €14,926,157.30.

Austrian Lotto Winning Odds Are Incredible

The odds of winning the Austria Lotto 6 aus 45 jackpot are 1 in 8,145,060. This is far better than the odds of winning the jackpot in some of the other European lotteries. For example, the odds of winning the Swiss Lotto are 1:31,474,716; while in France Loto the odds are 1:19,068,840.

With these jackpot odds you have a good chance of winning Austria Lotto’s top prize! But if you don’t win the jackpot, you still can win in this great lottery. Austria Lotto winning odds give you a great chance of winning in one of the other 9 additional prize divisions. The overall odds of winning any prize are 1 in 16. Austria Loto winnings are paid out tax free, which is yet another reason many players find Austria Lotto to be their lottery of choice.

theLotter’s Austria Lotto Jackpot Winner

One person who can truly attest to how easy it is to win when playing the Austrian lottery game is S. K., a chauffeur from Moscow. The father of three had only been playing at theLotter for a few months when he tried his luck in the Austrian Lotto. He picked his numbers randomly as usual. After he purchased his tickets he came home from work and opened up his laptop to see if he had won anything.

S.K. successfully matched the six main numbers selected in the draw: 4, 17, 18, 23, 31, and 40. He won an €824K Austria Lotto jackpot prize. “I lost 3.5 kilos in two days – that is how excited I was," S.K. said when he was flown by theLotter to Vienna to collect his prize.

LottoPlus – What Is It?

LottoPlus is an extra Austria Lotto draw game not offered at theLotter at this time. LottoPlus’s draw takes place right after the regular Austria Lotto draw on Wednesdays and Sundays. Players purchasing a physical ticket in Austria are given the option to pay an additional amount for their ticket, and then the numbers they’ve chosen will also participate in the separate Lotto Plus draw. Six numbers are drawn in LottoPlus as well, but there is no additional bonus number.

The Österreichische Lotterien balls, when not in use for the draw, are secured in a suitcase protected by a notarized double lock.

In LottoPlus draws, the jackpot must be won. What this means is that if there are no tickets that match the six numbers drawn, the prize money will go to players with winning tickets in the next highest prize division. The Austria LottoPlus jackpot is not won in every draw and frequently the prize money rolls down to the lower prize divisions.
