is pretty well taken care of and can put the resignation on the boss's desk tomorrow.

In theory, anyway.

A survey by

(from the 4th quarter of 2016 on behalf of


) showed that only a few Germans would quit if they won a large amount in the lottery *.

Only 18 percent (not even one in five) would stop working immediately if they suddenly became wealthy.

Obviously, a fifth (20 percent) of all Germans enjoy their work so much that if they won the lottery they would continue to work as before.

The other respondents would reduce their number of hours or look for a new job.

Lotto on Wednesday: What is my chance of six correct numbers today?

The chance of correctly ticking all the winning numbers in the “Lotto on Wednesday” is just 1: 139 million.

If the first two prize categories remain unoccupied, you can win the jackpot with five correct numbers plus a super number.

Drawing the lottery numbers: the biggest mishaps

Probably the biggest lottery breakdown happened on April 3, 2013 at the Wednesday lottery on ZDF.

"Balls and devices are checked as always," said Lottofee Heike Maurer during the live broadcast.

At their start signal, the balls fell into the lottery machine.

Actually as always, but this time two bullets got stuck in their anchorage.

The draw was declared invalid 22 minutes after it was broadcast on ZDF and was repeated.

In February 1999, luck literally broke in front of the camera.

The last time it was shuffled for the lottery game 77, the ball with the number six fell apart.

The drawing was repeated, the excitement was huge, the viewers complained to the broadcaster.

“The story was even in the newspapers in Indonesia afterwards,” remembers ARD lottery faire Franziska Reichenbacher.

The draws on April 10, 1999 and July 30, 2014 were not a glitch, but they were quite strange. At that time, the numbers 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 26 and the numbers 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 37 tumbled than the six correct ones from the drum.

Since then, there has never been a series of five consecutive numbers in the history of the lottery.

This is probably better for the tipsters too.

Because: An unusually large number of players rely on rankings.

However, the total payout will be divided between the number of winners, so that each individual's share of the profit will shrink.

In the 1999 draw, 38,008 winners only received 379.90 marks for their five correct numbers.

With normal draws it would have been up to 10,000 marks.
