Lotto 6 aus 49 winners and their luxury German cars

Lotto 6aus49 is a successful German lottery. It offers a huge € 1 million Euro mid-week lottery jackpot, whilst on weekends the jackpot rises to an attractive € 2 million Euros. The 6aus49 lottery is available in store and has also become a popular online lottery. It is Germany’s most popular domestic lottery game.

The lotto draws are every Wednesday and Saturday night. However, there is a rather bizarre, some would even say efficient, side of the Lotto 6aus49. According to Auto Motor und Sport, Germany’s leading car magazine, of the reported 25 winners who have gone public with their winnings, 75% of them have purchased a so-called Big Five luxury car with their winnings.

The Big Five are Audi, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Porsche. The magazine citing media reports polled the data and found the following top five luxury cars, as purchased by Lotto 6aus49 winners:
1.Mercedes-Benz (predominantly a AMG model)
2.Porsche (predominantly a 911 model)
3.Volkswagen (predominantly a Phaeton model)
4.BMW (predominantly a M6 model)
5.Audi (predominantly a RS model)

The cumulative total spent on German luxury cars was a staggering € 13,4 million euros. However, non-German cars did make an appearance. According to the data, around 20% of Lotto 6aus49 jackpot winners purchased the following:
1.Bugatti Veyron
2.Rolls Royce Phantom
3.Bentley GT
4.Aston Martin DB9
5.Skoda Fabia

The last one was a lucky 2008 Stuttgart winner, after pocketing € 1,4 million euros. He bought the same house he rented, and purchased a new car for himself and his wife: a Skoda Fabia for € 24,300. He was the lowest car spending jackpot winner!
