About German Lotto
What is German Lotto?
German Lotto (or Lotto 6 aus 49) is Germany's biggest national game. 6 Main Numbers are drawn from a field of 1 to 49 and 1 "Super Number" is drawn from a field of 0 to 9. Match just two Main Numbers and the "Super Number" and you start winning! German Lotto features one of richest weekly total prize pools out there; on average €17 million. Draws are held every Wednesday and Saturday, giving you two chances at the jackpot every week. Now that's wunderbar!
What is the "Super Number" for?
German Lotto draws another ball - the "Super Number" in addition to the 6 Main Numbers. The "Super Number" adds to the fun of winning in 5 of the 9 prize levels up for grabs!
How can I play?
Getting in on the game is easy: we are available via Live Support, email or phone. You can even order via fax or we can mail you one of our entry forms. We confirm all your orders with us via email or post; the choice is up to you. Our trained staff are here to help you. Got your numbers picked? Great! If not, why not let our quick pick selector do the hard work and select some lucky numbers for you.
When can I play?
You can place an order any day of the week and we will enter you as soon as possible upon processing your order. A countdown on each lotto game page tells you exactly how much time is left to the next draw. Call, email or use our Live Support - we'll get you in on the game.
How do I not miss a draw?
You can play for more than one draw by choosing a “Subscription”. Our agents can let you know what subscriptions are available; you can play for as many weeks as you like for up to one year. Going on vacation? Want to keep your lucky numbers in play? No problem, setting up a subscription is quick, easy and ensures that you're always in with a chance to win the jackpot.
What if I want to play other games too?
With ELG, you can select any game you want, as long as you are not a resident of that country. (In other words, a resident of Germany cannot play the German Lotto through ELG.) You can choose the games that suit your fancy and play as many as you wish!
How do I play with a group?
In addition to individual plays, ELG also offers syndicate play. This allows you to increase your chances of winning, or to play for longer, while reducing your costs. Groups range from 8 to 250 players, dependant on which game you choose. To find out more, please call, email or click on Live Support at any time.
How do I get advance notice on Superdraws, rollovers or special events?
Superdraws are special ; you never know when one will suddenly be announced and rollovers can happen at any time. Who wants to miss a chance at these larger-than-usual jackpots? You can sign up for advance notice through email alerts or by signing up for our RSS feed.
How do I know if I've won?
There's nothing better than knowing you've won! If you've won €1000 or more in any draw, we'll telephone you as soon as possible to share the happy news! At the end of your play period, we always send you a Final Statement showing your total prize money won. You also receive a complete list of winning numbers so you can see the draw results for yourself.
How do I get my winnings?
Winnings are included with your Final Statement (sent automatically to you when your current play period ends) in the form of a cheque, bank draft, money order or applicable financial instrument for your country. (Total wins of less than £10 for British Lotto, or €10 for all other games, will be deposited directly to your ELG account and are available upon request at any time.) Of course, we are always happy to make any special arrangements you may require for receiving your prize money. For your convenience, we can also convert winnings to most major national currencies at the prevailing exchange rate. Don't forget, with ELG you are guaranteed to receive the full value of all the prizes you win, with no taxes deducted and no additional fees of any kind.
How do I check my own results?
As part of the quality service we are proud to offer, you can check all the latest results on this site. You can also sign up for email notifications or an RSS feed that automatically sends you the results you want. Don't forget ; we check your tickets for you after every draw you've entered and allocate the full value of your wins.
