Lottery Revenue is Down in Germany 3%


Germany’s state lottery is reporting a drop of 3% year-on-year for the second quarter of 2019. The Deutsche Lotto-und Totoblock (DLTB) noted that sells had fallen in 16 federal states to €3.6bn (£3.2bn/$4.0bn).

The majority of the revenues came from the Lotto 6aus49 game that racked up €1.8bn, accounting for half of all sales.

The Eurojackpot did perform as well. It struggled to reach €603m in sales. This is in stark contract to the previous year when tickets flowed to players seeking to win a large pool prize of €90m. Apparently, it takes a large jackpot to lure bettors.

Nonetheless, quite a few new millionaires now live in Germany thanks to DLTB’s games. Among the sixty lucky souls, a Rheinland-Pfalz player won a €63.2m prize in a Eurojackpot draw. This is the largest prize ever awarded in the country.

Twelve of the millionaires come from Nordrhein-Westphalen, Germany’s most populous state. One winner took in the second largest sum at €45m.
