German Lotto is owned and operated by Deutscher Lotto and Totoblock (DLTB) which is a partnership of sixteen independent national lottery companies in Germany. The first draw started in 1974, available at that time only for German citizens. In May 2013, German Lotto changed the rules to incorporate the Super Number increasing their prize tiers which made the game more popular.
