A speaker of Deutscher Lotto- und Totoblock, Klaus Sattler, confirmed a report by Bild, the biggest German tabloid, about plans to start the largest European lottery ever. Sattler confirmed this weekend: „It is true that several European lottery operators are considering to start a jackpot oriented game.“ Bild reported that EuroLotto would offer jackpots of much more than 100 million Euros.

According to Sattler, these plans will be discussed with the supervisory authorities of the states and the Academic Advisory Board (wissenschaftlicher Fachbeirat), established by the new Interstate Treaty on Gambling (Glücksspielstaatsvertrag).
