Lotto 6 aus 49 winners and their luxury German cars


Lotto 6 aus 49 is a successful German lottery which offers its players a chance to win €1 million on the mid-week lottery jackpot, and double this at the weekend with its €2 million jackpot.

Continuing to grow in popularity and available to play both in store and more increasingly these days online, it is Germany’s most popular domestic lottery game. There are many things that winners may want to spend their prize money on however there is a rather interesting trend in winners’ expenditure from Lotto 6 aus 49.

According to Germany’s leading car magazine, Auto Motor und Sport, of the reported 25 winners that had gone public with their winnings by the end of 2013, 75% of them were said to have purchased a so-called “Big Five luxury car” with their winnings.

The Big Five as they are known are Audi, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Porsche. The magazine which cites media reports, took the data and did a poll in order to find the top five luxury cars that have been purchased by Lotto 6aus49 winners.

The list of cars are as follows:

– Mercedes-Benz (predominantly a AMG model)

– Porsche (predominantly a 911 model)

– Volkswagen (predominantly a Phaeton model)

– BMW (predominantly a M6 model)

– Audi (predominantly a RS model)

The cumulative total spent on these luxury cars was a massive €13,4 million. Non-German cars, while not seeming to be as popular with the winner, did still make an appearance. According to the data, around 20% of Lotto 6aus49 jackpot winners purchased the following:

– Bugatti Veyron

– Rolls Royce Phantom

– Bentley GT

– Aston Martin DB9

– Skoda Fabia

Interestingly the lowest car spending jackpot winner came in 2008, when a winner from Stuttgart pocketed € 1,4 million and modestly in comparison to the others, spent €24,300 on a Skoda Fabia.

Why not give yourself a chance to win big by playing with, and maybe you could be treating yourself to your dream car.
