Lottery24 – Craftsman wins €24 million from Lotto 6 aus 49

A Lotto 6 aus 49 jackpot of €24 million was bagged by an anonymous craftsman from Hanover in Germany. The Lucky man has won the biggest lottery prize ever in the German state of Lower Saxony.

He was the only one to get the correct numbers for the Lotto 6 aus 49 drawing held on Wednesday January 29th. His winning numbers were 3, 12, 15, 26, 34, 36, and the Supernumber 5.

Toto-Lotto spokesman John Herbert told newspaper BILD: “He’s a middle-aged man and he came to our headquarters during midday.” Calm and collected, the new millionaire said: “This sum is too hard to believe! I need some time to process this“.

The German Lotto 6 aus 49 winner who won from a Quick Tip selection has been a lottery customer for 25 years. He said “I play regularly with some friends in a private syndicate and sometimes I play on my own when the jackpot is very high”.

He doesn’t know what he will do with his Lotto 6 aus 49 prize money yet, but he has insisted that he will continue to work.

BILD newspaper tried to calculate what he could do with his Lotto 6 aus 49 money and the following were some of the ideas they came up with:
•The craftsman could build a new district from scratch, build 81 single-family homes (€300,000 per property).
•The Lotto 6 aus 49 winner could buy 1420 VW Golfs for €17,175 each
•Somebody also had an interesting idea that if you were to stack the money in hundred euro bills, it would be a tower of 24 meters high!
