!!!THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED!!!
Win a year's supply of beer in celebration of the Oktoberfest!
The Oktoberfest origins can be traced back to the early 19th century and has become Munich’s (and Germany’s) biggest festival, attracting millions of tourists each year.
In only a few days, the roughly 4 million visitors will consume an astonishing 7 million litres of beer, with a “Maß” or 1 litre costing almost 9 Euros.
There will be excitement aplenty, but if you think you’re going to miss out, don’t panic! PlayHugeLottos.com is bringing the Oktoberfest to you in 2012 – well in a manner of speaking!

How much beer is a “year’s supply”?
We worked out that on the two celebrating days of the week (or “Feiertage” in Germany), namely Friday and Saturday, we consume between 4 and 6 beers a night, or between 8 and 12 over a particularly joyous weekend. Therefore, a typical case of 24 beers should hold for 2 weekends.
The 52 weeks in a year therefore should reduce around 624 beers to their emptied form. That’s approximately 26 cases or 212 litres of beer.
We have decided to cap the value of the beer at 2,000 EUR.
That sounds great, but can anyone, anywhere win it??
Yes, absolutely! We know this prize is quite unique, and getting the beer to the winner is almost certainly going to be a challenge, but we’re ready for it! We’ve decided to deliver the beers in 4 quarterly instalments. With the help of a fixer in the region our winner is from, we’ll arrange for the purchase and delivery of the beer.
I only drink Heineken/Budweiser/Radeberger, etc!
We know tastes are going to vary. Thus, when we pick the winner, we’ll have a good beer discussion with them to ascertain which variety they would prefer. We will then use our fixer to arrange in quarters as mentioned above. We only ask that you snap a few photos of your prize as proof for the rest of the competition entrants.
I don’t drink alcohol. How about a non-alcoholic variety?
Absolutely! We’re not going to force you to stick with beer (although this is an Oktoberfest competition). Instead of the beer, you may opt for a beverage of your choice, up to the value of 2,000 EUR. A few ideas would be: non-alcoholic beer, wine, soft drinks or spirits.
Again, whatever the choice may be, we only ask that you take a photo of your prize for your fellow competition entrants.
Is there a second and third prize?
There is indeed! As happy PlayHugeLottos.com customers, you’ll be pleased to know the second and third prize is 250 EUR and 100 EUR in PlayCredit, guaranteed to keep your lotto entries rolling for the draws you choose!
