What is lotto 6 out of 49?
Lotto 6 out of 49 is as simple a lottery game as they come. To participate in this game, you need to purchase the lotto tickets online or from one of the 25,000+ kiosks spread across Germany. You can buy as many tickets as you want and wait for the lottery draw that is conducted every Wednesday and Saturday (as mentioned above). You need to mark 6 numbers on your ticket(s) and if they correspond to the winning numbers, you can take home a handsome winning amount.
There are no special skills required to play this game because it completely depends on your luck. There are 9 winning categories in this game where you are paid the highest for the first category and the amount goes down with each subsequent category. The least that you need to do to win is have two matching numbers and one super number in your ticket.
If there is no winner on a particular day, the amount for that day gets added to the progressive jackpot of the next draw day.
Wednesday 6 out of 49 rules
The traditional Mittwochslotto has a long tradition. It was started in April 1982 and the game system in use was 7 out of 38. This tradition continued till May 1986 when the rules of the Wednesday games were made similar to the Saturday game rules. The Wednesday games also had another rule where the first two draws had equal odds. In December 1996, the draw was made uniform with the Saturday games. From the 8 winning categories that existed earlier on during the Wednesday games, the rule has been changed to incorporate an additional winning category. Thus, when you play on Wednesdays now, you participate in the usual 6 out of 49 lottery game.
Why play on Wednesdays then?
Wednesday is the middle of the week considering that Monday is the start of the work week. As a result, the total number of players on Wednesdays is lower than the number on Saturdays. So, if you choose to play on Wednesday, you have a higher chance of winning the lottery. Also, if there is no winner on Saturday, the amount gets added to the jackpot on the following Wednesday. Since more people play on Saturdays and if there is no winner, the Wednesday jackpot amounts are typically higher. If you are thinking of winning big, Wednesdays are, thus, better options.
Some people believe in astrology and many of them play 6 out of 49 accordingly. It is believed that if someone is an Aquarius or a Gemini (definitely) or a Virgo, they can consider playing on Wednesday and will have higher chances of winning. Wednesday is also influenced by Mercury and the lucky numbers of this day are 1, 3 and 13 in that order.
Do you pay more to play on Wednesdays?
Not at all – since the rules of the game on Wednesdays and Saturdays were made constant, the ticket prices have also been kept similar at €1. If you purchase your tickets online, the processing fee to be paid is between €0.20 and €0.60. If you instead make your purchase from a kiosk, the processing fee that you need to pay is between €0.25 and €1. The processing fee depends on the region of Germany from where you buy your tickets.
There is plenty of fun for you to be had when you play lotto am Mittwoch. It is not just about winning the lottery on Wednesday, but also about getting together with your friends, enjoying some beer and wait for the winning numbers to flash on the TV (you can also follow the numbers online). A Wednesday can just be your lucky Wednesday.
