Viking Lotto is drawn in Norway every Wednesday night. Each week it offers a guaranteed minimum €1 million (approx. $1.4 million) jackpot that rolls over weekly until it’s won. It’s the world’s longest running multi country lottery being native to Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, and Sweden. Viking Lotto’s record jackpot prize was won in 2013 and was worth €15.4 (approx. $22 million). Proceeds from Viking Lotto are distributed to local communities and not-for-profit organisations by each of the participating countries, so even if you don’t win you can still have that warm fuzzy feeling.
How to Play
For Viking Lotto, six main numbers are drawn from a machine containing 48 balls numbered from 1 to 48. In addition, two bonus numbers that act as supplementary numbers are drawn. To win the jackpot, a player must match all of the six main numbers, regardless of the bonus numbers. In addition to this, a Lucky Number is drawn which counts toward a separate Lucky Number Jackpot – this jackpot is won if the Lucky Number is part of the winning line.
Prizes are paid tax-free.
Odds of Winning
Odds of winning a prize are 1 in 53, and the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 98,172,144.
