Statistically speaking, four out of 36.5 million flights a year lead to fatal accidents, which means a rate of 1 in 9,125,000.
Note: Depending on the lottery, the chances of winning the main prize vary. If you want to know more about this, you can find more information at Lottodoktor.de.
With the Eurojackpot there are more prize categories, which in turn increases the chance of a minimum win. Only 1:42 is the odds for the lowest prize class, which describes two numbers plus one euro number. The problem: It’s not as “easy” as it sounds, especially since the profit in this class is so minimal that it is hardly noticeable. And in the classes that are worth winning?
At first glance, the probability is higher than with a pure lottery game. However, the better rate does not apply to one person alone, but to all participants. If you guess correctly, the probability of having to share the winnings of the respective class with many other people increases. And since the Eurojackpot only has real chances of millions in the two highest classes, 5 + 1 numbers with a little bit of bad luck can fortunately turn into a sum of 400,000 euros or less.
The Spanish Christmas lottery has long been playable in Germany. It is considered a lottery of chances, because not only is the main prize paid out 170 times, it also has so many other prizes that something can always be won. The main prize for each whole lot is limited to 4 million euros. The odds for winning are 1 in 100,000. Sounds good? It is, but there is a catch:
Nevertheless, it can be said that at least every sixth ticket wins. Every year 1,794 winning numbers are drawn, which always mean a profit of 1,000 euros for a full ticket.
However, the Christmas lottery is not comparable to the other lotteries, as it is only drawn for Christmas, so the chances do not exist week after week.
If you want to play the lottery, you should ignore the probabilities, because for the individual they are so low that the lottery form can be forgotten on the table and still won. Of course, people manage to commit themselves to the correct numbers every week, but there is neither a system nor any preferred numbers. Numbers are not drawn more frequently or not for some reason. Even the number series 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 is just as likely as any other combination. Nobody is stuck in the balls, the way they fall out is due to chance.
The previous record holder with 37.7 million euros in Lotto 6 out of 49 has been a nurse from North Rhine-Westphalia since October 2006, who is now in second place. A Frankfurt internet tipper holds the Hessian record at 6 out of 49. The young man grabbed a total of 29 million euros on September 5, 2018 (exactly: 29,053,125.40 euros).
The special thing about his lottery case: Nobody except him hit the six correct numbers nationwide on that day, and nobody got the right super number. The young man from Frankfurt not only cracked the jackpot in prize class 1 (six correct numbers plus super number), but also secured the pot in prize class 2 (six correct numbers), which catapulted him to a total of over 29 million euros.
Incidentally, it went even higher for a North Hessian employee in August 2016: He achieved 84.8 million euros in the Eurojackpot lottery and has since held the record of the highest lottery prize ever paid out in Hesse. He had initially kept the profitable game receipt, ultimately worth almost 85 million euros, in the glove compartment of his car and only noticed the prize a few days after the drawing.
Since the change to the winning plan for Lotto 6 out of 49 on September 23, 2020, the prize pool of class 1 (6 correct numbers plus super number) can now also be used over the 13th
