A unique occurrence in the German Lotto 6 aus 49

Lottery24 – Massoud Kader won on the German Lotto 6 aus 49Berlin, Germany – In the German Lotto 6 aus 49 draw held on July 30th the lucky numbers were: 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 37. These crazy German Lotto numbers have never been picked and actually won in the lottery’s history. Despite these unusual numbers, 1165 players had 5 correct numbers and 3 had all 6 correct numbers. How crazy is that?

Massoud Kader from Hannover was one of those who picked 5 of the 6 lucky German Lotto 6 aus 49 numbers. As 6th number he picked the number 15. The owner of the Bar where the ticket was sold said: “I only play the lottery 4 to 5 times in a year, and I usually pick numbers in a row“.

Because of the amount of people who had the same amount of correct German Lotto 6 aus 49 numbers, Massoud only got around € 1,014.70. Was he disappointed? “Definitely not. When you expect to win nothing and you get a prize worth over €1,000 it’s awesome” he expressed.

He continued: “I will be taking a last minute flight to somewhere, preferably Croatia.”

The first 5 consecutive numbers (2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 26) were chosen in a Lotto 6 aus 49 draw held in 1999. Back then 38,000 players picked these numbers and had to share just €194 between them. Lottery spokesperson Klaus Sattler said: “Such patterns are very common. Whoever chooses them should know that they are very popular and the winnings would be shared between many people“.

Why do so many players choose numbers like this? Psychologist Dr. Bernd Sobottka (52) of the AHG Clinic (Lübstorf) said: “By sticking to the same patterns people attempt to influence the probability of winning in a magical way.”
