You are probably familiar with the European EuroMillions and EuroJackpot lotteries and their enormous jackpot prizes. German lotteries, on the other hand, aren’t as well-known, even among residents of Malta. This week lottery fans’ attention is focused on the Germany Lotto, one of the biggest national lotteries in Europe, which currently offers an amazing jackpot of €42,000,000. 

Germany Lotto, also known as Lotto 6aus49, guarantees a €1 million starting jackpot and no one has won the prize in the current cycle since August 22, 2020. There is a good chance the jackpot will soon surpass Lotto’s record jackpot prize of €45,400,000.

What makes Germany Lotto stand out?
Adrian Cooremans, spokesperson of theLotter – the world’s leading online lottery ticket purchasing service – explained: “The odds of winning the Germany Lotto jackpot are one in 139 million which might sound like a lot, but they are actually the same odds as EuroMillions. You’re twice as likely to win Germany Lotto than the American Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots and more than four times as likely to win than the SuperEnalotto jackpot.”

According to Cooremans, another good reason to play Germany Lotto: “Is the fact that it has one of the most generous second prizes division in the world. You can win prizes worth one or several million euros by guessing Germany Lotto’s six main numbers, whereas to win the jackpot you must also match the lottery’s Super Number.”

How to play for Germany Lotto’s €42,000,000 jackpot online from Malta
