Deutsche Weihnachtslotterie (German Christmas Lottery)
Following the popularity of the Spanish Christmas Lottery (El Gordo de Navidad), lottery organisers in Germany have announced a new lottery in a similar format that will take place annually. The first draw will take place on Boxing Day 2017 and every tenth ticket will win a prize. The main prize is €300,000 and by entering the draw, players will be supporting charitable causes of the partner foundations.
The results for the first Weihnachtslotterie draw will be displayed here after the draw has taken place on 26th December 2017 at 7:40pm.
Each player receives a ticket that consists of a five-digit number combination between 00000 and 99999. A 'Los-Serie' (Lot Series) consists of 100,000 lots, which means there are many prizes to be won in each series, including the top prize.
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||9,959||€20||€199,000||Correct final digit|
The total prize fund for a series is €649,000.
