Germany: Lotto Brandenburg takes stock -Profits - also for the country and the common good

LAND BRANDENBURG LOTTO GmbH can look back on a successful year 2021. The Brandenburg lottery players spent a good 213.3 million euros on LBL offers last year - 55% of which went to the most popular game, LOTTO 6aus49. The company thus achieved the highest stakes in the last 10 years. Thanks to good proceeds, around 79.2 million euros in gaming-specific duties and taxes also went to the state of Brandenburg.  

The departments of the state government, among others, use the revenue from the gambling tax to support charitable social, cultural or sporting projects. In addition, the GlücksSpirale lottery generated further special-purpose income of around 900,000 euros, which flowed into the promotion of top-class sports from the German Olympic Sports Confederation, welfare, monument protection and the nature conservation fund.
