Lotto 6aus49 launched in 1974 and is one of Germany’s biggest Lottery Games. Draws take place every Wednesday (6.25pm) and Saturday (7.25pm) CET. Players choose six main numbers between 1 – 49 plus and an additional number, known as ‘Superzahl’. This is a bonus number between 0-9.
To win the jackpot, a player must match all seven numbers. However, it is possible to win a prize by matching as few as 2 main numbers plus the Superzahl. Consequently, jackpots have climbed to incredible amounts with the largest jackpot so far being €43,380,458 in December 2007.
The 6 Aus 49 has a rollover limit of 13 draws. After this, the top prizes would be split between the winners on the next tier down. However, this rarely occurs.
