How do lotteries work

How do you play the lottery in the "6aus49" system?

The number lottery 6aus49 was played for the first time in 1955 and has been the most popular lottery in Germany ever since. The aim of the lottery is Correctly typing six numbers in the correct order - plus the correct super number. If you have managed this, the jackpot of the first prize category is cracked. The draws take place on Wednesdays at 6:25 p.m. and Saturdays at 7:25 p.m. Learn how to play the lottery below.

The lottery rules for 6aus49 are actually quite simple:

There are 12 betting fields on the lottery ticket that contain the numbers 1 to 49. However, you do not have to fill in all fields. The more fields you provide with tips, the higher the fees for submitting the lottery ticket. However, the greater the number of filled-in fields, the more likely it is to win. Now tick 6 numbers in each tip field that you want to use. Nine prize classes decide on the amount of the distribution - in the first prize class there is the main prize, which often reaches millions. The higher the prize category, the smaller the prize, but the higher the probability of winning.

At the bottom right of the ticket you will also find two boxes with which you can use the Match days as well as the duration Your lottery ticket. You can play on Wednesday and / or Saturday. To determine the duration, i.e. how many weeks your lottery ticket should take part in the draws, tick the desired number of weeks - a minimum of 1 week and a maximum of 8 weeks.

But how high is the probability of typing six correct numbers? Or even to get the super number right and hit the jackpot? If you are curious and a fan of numbers and odds, you will find detailed information about winning the lottery here.

A question that players also ask themselves more often is: When does a ticket expire? Well, if a lottery ticket is too worn or damaged (e.g. accidentally washed in the washing machine), the numbers, barcode, serial number or date you have typed are probably no longer clear or legible. And that is actually a problem when picking up a prize, because if you cannot correctly assign the lottery ticket to the winning numbers, it is invalid. It is much easier for everyone who plays the lottery online, because the lottery tickets issued are stored and therefore always easy to read. In addition, online lottery tickets are not lost!
