The new lottery will probably cost 2 Euros, significantly more than the normal lottery (0,75 Euro). Lottery drawings will be on Fridays, based on a 5 out of 50 system (and two more numbers out of eight).
EuroLotto would be a direct competitor of EuroMillions, offered since 2004 in nine European states (France, Spain, UK, Belgium, Luxembourg, Portugal, Ireland, Austria, as well as the non-EU member state Switzerland). According to Bild, EuroLotto will also be offered in nine states. Last year, the Scandinavian states, Estonia, the Netherlands and Italy were mentioned as possible partners of the German operators.
