Lotto 6 out of 49 is among the most popular lottery games in the world and especially in Germany. This lottery is more than 60 years old and it has created more than 5,000 millionaires over the years. The draw for the lottery takes place every Wednesday and Saturday and the jackpot winner can take home up to €11 million. Lotto am Mittwochgewinnzahlen has the same odds as lotto am Samstaggewinnzahlen and this ensures that the enthusiasm for the game is always there.
There was a time when the lotto on Wednesdays had different rules than the lotto on Saturdays. The former used to have 8 winning categories as against the 9 winning categories of the latter. But it has been a while (since 1996) that the rules of the game have been standard for both Wednesdays and Saturdays. So, if you plan to participate on both the draw days, go ahead and do that because there is no difference as far as the odds are concerned.
Some players, however, believe that lotto am Mittwochgewinnzahlen is easier than winning the lotto on Saturday. This is for the simple reason that Wednesday is bang in the middle of the work week and attracts slightly lesser number of players. This automatically improves your odds of winning the jackpot or in one of the other profit categories.
As one of the rules of 6 out of 49 states, if there is no jackpot winner on a particular drawday, the amount gets added to the jackpot of the following draw day. Because Saturday is more popular among the players, the jackpot amount is typically higher. This amount, when it gets transferred to the draw to be conducted on the next Wednesday, makes a significant impact on the jackpot value. And because of the more favourable odds, you stand a higher chance of hitting it.
On the other hand, playing lotto on Saturday is perhaps more exciting because of the sheer number of participants. When you go out with friends and/or family on a Saturday, you will find people eagerly awaiting the lottery draw. There is a festive atmosphere in the air and if you manage to win on a Saturday, there will be a deluge of wishes to handle. This is fun, isn't it? So, even if someone says that lotto am Samstaggewinnzahlen is more challenging, they cannot take away the fun quotient of playing during the weekend.
Other than these reasons stated here, there is no difference in the game whether you play on Wednesdays or Saturdays. You go through the usual routine of purchasing your ticket, marking your numbers and making the submission. The lowest profit category on both the days (2 numbers and super number matched) gets you €2.50 and the highest profit category (6 numbers and super number matched) gets you the jackpot. The odds of winning the jackpot on all draw dates is 1 in 140 million.
Apart from the main draw, there are two additional games that you can play. These are called Spiel 77 and Super 6. But these games can only be played when you participate in the main draw. The number sequences for both these games is marked on the ticket already and you only need to indicate your willingness to participate. Of course, if you buy your ticket online, you can choose your numbers. The jackpot for Spiel 77 is the same €11 million and for Super 6, it is €100,000. The difference between these two draws is that in case of the latter, the winning amount is not divided if there are multiple winners (if the number doesn’t reach 100).
The ticket price for lotto 6 out of 49 only costs €1 and a small processing fee. If you decide to play Spiel 77 and Super 6, you need to pay €2.50 and €1.25 respectively. There is no processing fee applicable for these add-on games.
Lotto 6 out of 49 is more a tradition than a game in Germany. There are millions who wager on the jackpot twice a week and you can sense the excitement in the air. See the draw, soak in the fun and you could be the next millionaire.
