Rollover in Austria

No player managed to match the six main numbers in the Austria Lottery drawing on Sunday night, so the Wednesday night jackpot is €1.7 million.

Although nobody successfully matched the six numbers required to win Sunday's jackpot three players won a second tier prize of €40,144 for matching 5 numbers and the Zusatzzahl [bonus number]. A further 336,639 players picked up smaller wins from the lower tiers.

Known to Austrian players as the "Lotto 6 aus 45", the first Austrian Lotto draw was held in 1986.

About 42-43% of the money received for Austrian Lotto ticket sales is returned to players in the form of prizes and each year the lotto provides hefty donations to the Austrian Federal Sports Organization.
