How to Play Weihnachtslotterie

Inspired by the Spanish El Gordo de Navidad, Weihnachtslotterie is played in a similar way and operates like a raffle rather than a traditional lottery draw. Players receive a random five digit number and a draw is held on 26th December. On the day of the draw, winning numbers are chosen at random and players win prizes up to €400,000 if they have matching tickets.

How it Works

Players can take part in Weihnachtslotterie draws by buying tickets online for €20 each. When they enter, they will receive a random five-digit number. The aim of the game is to match the five-digit number on the ticket with either all or some of the digits of the winning codes. There are even prizes for having a ticket number one up or down from one of the winning codes. Go to the Prizes page to find out more.

There are 100,000 different five-digit combinations between 00000 and 99999 and tickets are limited to one series, so once all 100,000 are sold there will be no more available for that edition of the draw. The Weihnachtslotterie draw starts at 16:00 CET on 26th December and 69 winning codes will be drawn in the course of the raffle.
