How to Play and Win German Lotto

To play the German Lotto, players must choose six numbers from a possible 1 - 49, then one additional number from a selection of 1 - 9. This number will be the Bonus ball, which is known as the Superzahl. To win a prize, players must match from two numbers plus the Superzahl upwards. The jackpot is won by matching all six numbers and the Superzahl.

Prizes in each tier are made up of a proportion of the total prize fund, so varies slightly from week to week. If there is no winner of the jackpot, it rolls over to the next draw, and the jackpot will accumulate this way until it is won.

All German Lotto Prizes are paid out in tax free, lump sums.
