Hamburg, 29 January 2024. 2023 was a good year for lottery players – the jackpots of Germany’s most popular lotteries, Eurojackpot and LOTTO 6aus49, reached record levels several times over. The players of LOTTO24 AG had particular reasons to celebrate last year: the market leader for online lotteries paid out a record prize sum of EUR 615,213,517 to almost 1.6 million winners in 2023. This includes players of the LOTTO24 and Tipp24 brands. Most of the winners came from North Rhine-Westphalia (19.1 percent), Bavaria (16.1 percent) and Baden-Württemberg (13.7 percent). The highest winnings were paid out in Hamburg last year – more than EUR 169.6 million went to players from the Hanseatic city in northern Germany!
Three record winnings
Playing the lottery and suddenly becoming one of the richest Germans – that’s what happened to three LOTTO24 players last year. The biggest prize was won by a 36-year-old from Hamburg: he won more than EUR 117 million in Eurojackpot last August. He was closely followed by a 61-year-old LOTTO24 player from Bremerhaven, who won more than EUR 107 million in Eurojackpot in January. In third place is a 63-year-old from Hamburg who won EUR 45 million in LOTTO 6aus49 in April.
Most prizes were won in these lotteries
The luckiest lottery last year was once again Eurojackpot: LOTTO24 AG players won an impressive total of EUR 354,607,865 in this lottery. In second place is LOTTO 6aus49 with winnings of EUR 189,890,111, while the supplementary lottery Spiel 77 is in third place with winnings of EUR 18,769,981.
