On last week’s drawing of the Lotto 6 aus 49 lottery game, which took place on Wednesday 12th February, no lucky player could boast all six winning numbers plus the bonus number, so the jackpot rolled over once again, and rose to an incredible 14 million Euros. Saturday’s draw was, again, a rollover – meaning that for the drawing on Wednesday 19th February the jackpot has now reached 16 million Euros.
Of course, just because no one was lucky enough to scoop the big lottery jackpot, it doesn’t mean that everyone went home empty-handed. Four lucky souls pocketed a more-than-respectable 100,000 Euros each after matching fewer numbers. The winning lottery tickets were purchased in Baden-Württemberg, Berlin, Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia.
Everyone enjoys the rush that comes with playing the lottery – after all, the adrenaline and anticipation that courses through you while you wait to see if the right numbers have come up simply can’t be matched by any other experience. After all, it’s not often that there’s quite so much money at stake!
Jackpots for the Lotto 6 aus 49 can run to several million euros, making any jackpot winner extremely wealthy, with recent jackpots running into tens of millions! That sort of money could buy houses, cars, travel, holidays, lifelong financial security…the list goes on and on. And it’s not all about the jackpot – lesser lotto winnings can still constitute a life-changing amount of money. Some winners also provide their friends and family with the sort of lifelong financial security that others can only dream of.
