Germany Lottery (Deutschland)Germany Lottery (Deutschland): German woman walks around with €32 million winning lottery ticket for weeksRating:

By Kate Northrop

Imagine the moment you figure out you've been walking around with nearly $40 million in your purse for weeks without even realizing it.

An anonymous German woman did not even know that she had hit the Germany Lottery's Lotto 6aus49 €32 million (US$38.98 million) jackpot from the Wed., Jun. 9, 2021 drawing until several weeks after.

It's a good thing that ticket stayed in her purse — had it been misplaced, it would have been heartbreaking for the €32 million jackpot to go unclaimed.

"I still get dizzy at the thought that I carelessly carried almost 33 million euros around in my purse for several weeks," the 45-year-old player told Lotto Bayern.

According to the Lottery, the unnamed woman picked random numbers on the Lotto 6aus49 ticket she purchased for €1, or US$1.20.

The odds of matching all six numbers plus the Superzahl to win the jackpot are about 1 in 139.84 million. The winning numbers for the drawing on June 9 were 1, 7, 17, 22, 41, and 49 with Superzahl 3.

With the money safely claimed, the woman said she doesn't plan on playing the lottery again and remarked that the win was "more than enough for my husband, my daughter, and me."

She also said that the winnings will be put to good use in helping her live a healthy life and doing more for the environment.

Sehr Gut!

Congratulations!  I think she lives in the state of Bayern (Bavaria) like I was late 80's-92.

Only won 15 DM way back when.

    Well good for her!

    If I am ever lucky enough to win a jackpot, I will know right after the draw.

    I always keep my tix in my desk drawer until draw time.

            Wow, that's wonderful news. It's a good thing Germany is not known for having a bunch of bag and purse snatchers. If she lived in Brazil, this could have been a much different outcome. Thank goodness she didn't throw it away by accident. Heidelberg Germany has one of the best colleges in the world. She can now afford to send her daughter there. That is life changing money.

                combin(49,6)/10^6=13.983816

                combin(49;6)/10^6=13,983816

                How is this? The Reservezahl used to be the 7th drawn number. We crossed six numbers

                  That would be like the local lotto:

                  0 , 0 , 5245786
                  0 , 1 , 850668
                  1 , 0 , 5104008
                  1 , 1 , 671580
                  2 , 0 , 1678950
                  2 , 1 , 172200
                  3 , 0 , 229600
                  3 , 1 , 17220
                  4 , 0 , 12915
                  4 , 1 , 630
                  5 , 0 , 252
                  5 , 1 , 6
                  6 , 0 , 1

                  Would the 7th be from another pool?

                  So the Superzahl is 1 of 10. And it is 6/49 + 1/10? No reserveball.
                  9/10 no supernumber, 1/10 supernumber. That's a printed number on the Lottoschein, so it would be a random number?

                            First 6 are drawn from one drum from 1-49.

                            Superzahl is drawn from a drum 0-9.

                            The Superzahl is either randomly generated, or you can choose a playslip with your favoured number, or you can ask the clerk to change it, or you can change it yourself when playing online.
