Lot luck at a click? The NKL lottery on the Internet
Since 1947, it has been possible to buy NKL lottery tickets in Germany and thus to challenge one's luck a little bit. Thereby, the state lottery revenues take care of everything that is important since the foundation: the collection of the stakes, the winnings information, the winnings payment as well as the handing over of the material winnings. The only difference to the past: With the offer of tickets on the Internet, the NKL lottery has also arrived in the new age.
How the NKL lottery works?
Actually, the principle of the NKL lottery is quite simple: a lottery is divided into six classes, each of which is played for one month – so this means that a lottery runs for six months. Started is always on 1. April as well as on 1. October. Thereby the winning amounts and the number of winnings increase from class to class, generally you have the chance to win something every day. All you need to participate is a ticket for the NKL lottery; each of these tickets has a seven-digit winning number. When buying tickets, you can choose between whole tickets, half tickets, quarter tickets, eighth tickets and sixteenth tickets – a whole ticket costs 180 euros per class, the other tickets offered are correspondingly cheaper. In addition, it is possible to participate in the additional game Pension Joker for an extra five euros. You can also take part in the Million Joker, which costs an extra 28 euros per class for a whole ticket. The winning numbers are determined in daily draws. You can win, for example, material prizes such as cruises and cars as well as – of course – money and instant annuities. At the end of each class there is a jackpot drawing.
How to buy a lottery ticket on the Internet?
You can buy the tickets at the state lottery income meanwhile also in the Internet, as for example with NKL Boesche. At the company with a tradition of over 200 years, there is the possibility on the website to choose exactly which lot you prefer.
