Each player receives a ticket that consists of a five-digit number combination between 00000 and 99999. A 'Los-Serie' (Lot Series) consists of 99,500 lots, which means there are many prizes to be won in each series, including the top prize. The number of series’ is not limited, so there will be as many as needed to cover the total tickets sold.
In prize tiers 1-4, you must match the five-digit combination drawn in exactly the same order to win the prize for that tier. The fifth prize tier only requires you to match the final number correctly to win the €20 prize. You can find out more about the distribution of winnings per series in the table below:
|Prize Tier||Number of Prizes||Prize per Winner||Prize Fund||Available Prizes|
|1||1||€300,000||€300,000||1 x five-digit combination|
|2||2||€25,000||€50,000||2 x five-digit combinations|
|3||20||€2,500||€50,000||20 x five-digit combinations|
|4||200||€250||€50,000||200 x five-digit combinations|
|5||9,950||€20||€199,000||Correct final digit|
The total prize fund for a series is €649,000.
