Lotto players must now adapt to changes in the draw.

When it comes to numbers, the focus should be more transparency in the future.

Kassel – Will lottery players consider other numbers for their luck in the future?

The first lottery winner this year comes from the Offenbach district and probably doesn't have to worry about that anymore.

Since January 18, the game for millions has been taking place in a modernized lottery studio.

Among other things, new draw drums for the lottery numbers and super numbers and a converted lottery studio are intended to increase transparency in the lottery game, reports

The enlarged drawing drum provides an even better view of the drawing process, as reported by the

portal .

In addition, the drum has grown to a total height of 1.92 meters.

The previous gripping arm made of steel wire was replaced by a transparent collecting socket, which brings the ball through the lateral outlet tube made of acrylic glass onto the outlet track, as reported by the

Rheinische Post


In addition to the 360-degree camera in the studio, there will also be another one aimed at the interior of the new draw machine.

This should also contribute to improving transparency.


The lottery balls are also affected by the changes.

Innovations in playing the lottery: New balls present the lucky numbers

But not only the drawing drum itself, the balls inside are not exempt from the changes.

The previous table tennis balls have been replaced by slightly larger, labeled soft plastic balls made of polyurethane.

Thanks to the new material, the balls will roll through the drums with a completely different sound, which should bring a completely new lottery feeling.

But more volume also means more weight.

The weight of the new bullets increases from 3.09 grams to 25 grams.

With all the changes, however, one thing remains the same: the chute mounted on the back of the machine frame will continue to transport the 49 lottery balls into the draw drum via the control panel.

And with regard to security and previous lottery standards, everything should remain the same.

This is ensured by the Austrian company Form Orange, which has manufactured the devices under the highest standards and safety conditions and has been approved by an independent testing company.

In addition, the devices are tested once a year.

  • Larger drawing drum made of acrylic glass

  • Larger and heavier soft polyurethane synthetic balls

  • Transparent collection socket instead of a gripper arm

  • A second additional camera for the drawing drum

However, winning the lottery does not always make you happy either, a lottery winner from Great Britain even wishes she had never won and regrets her win.
