When do ticket sales close?
The last tickets are sold at 6pm CET ahead of the Wednesday draw and 7pm CET for the Saturday draw - remember if you are using a lottery courier to place your order in plenty of time, so that they have time to make it to a retailer to buy your ticket for you.
Do I pay any tax on my winnings?
German lottery winnings are generally tax free, which means you should only have to pay any income tax in accordance with your own local laws. If you live in a location where prizes are not taxed, such as the UK, then there should be nothing to pay under either UK or German laws.
How long is the prize claim period?
Usually around 13 weeks, but this can vary depending on which region of Germany sold you your ticket. The country has several smaller local lottery operators who participate in this national lottery game, and it's important to check the exact rules with the one who sold you your ticket.
How much does a ticket cost?
The standard price of a Lotto 6aus49 ticket is €1 although there is also a €0.50 processing fee. The exact price will also be affected by any supplementary games you choose to pay, and may vary via lottery courier services and due to exchange rate fluctuations if you are playing from outside of Europe.
What was the largest Lotto 6aus49 jackpot ever won?
A jackpot of roughly €45 million was won in December 2007 and shared between three ticketholders.
