Austrian 6aus45 Lotto
6aus45 is Austria’s most popular lotto. To enter just pick six numbers from – you guessed it – 45! The name of the game also explains the game in a nutshell, and that’s the beauty of the Austrian Lotto, it’s simplicity!
In the Austrian Lotto draw, six numbers are picked, plus an additional bonus number. Matching all six wins you the jackpot while additional prizes are given out for specific number and bonus number combinations. There are eight different prize tiers overall, and you have a 1 in 16 chance of winning the lowest prize division simply by guessing the bonus ball number.
The Hills Are Alive with the Sounds of Winning
The Austrian Lottery offers far greater odds than some Australian lotteries, like the Tuesday and Thursday Lotto. Overall you have a 1 in 12 chance of winning any prize in the Austrian Lotto, so, statistically speaking, every twelfth ticket should pay out.
The value of record jackpots in the Austrian Lotto keeps growing. In 2011 the record was €9 million (approx. $13.5 million), in 2012 the new record was €9.5 million (approx. $14 million). Sure this might not be as high as other lotteries, but there’s still a clear trend towards ever-larger jackpots.
Plus, don’t forget the Austrian Lotto has much better jackpot odds than many of its European neighbours and, at just $2 for a single ticket, it’s also much cheaper to play.
The Joker in the Pack
The Joker is an extra special game in the Austrian Lotto which follows the main draw. A six digit number is drawn and you can play up to three different joker number combinations at a time for even bigger chances to win.
Increase Your Chances with a Combo Bet
Combo bets, also known as system bets, increase your ticket price but also your odds of winning. If you pick more than six numbers on your ticket you will automatically launch the Combo feature. The beauty of Combo bets is that, by selecting more numbers, you can then use those extra numbers in multiple combinations to increase your odds of winning.
