How to Play Vikinglotto

Vikinglotto is easy to play, whether you choose to visit a lottery retailer in one of the participating countries or enter online. So what are the steps?

  • Pick six main numbers from 1 to 48, plus one Viking number between 1 and 5. You can also go for a ‘Quick Pick’ ticket if you prefer random numbers.
  • Decide whether you want to add Joker, the Plus number, Super Viking or systems
  • Choose how many entries you want to submit
  • Pay for your ticket
  • Check the latest results to see if you won a prize. If you choose to play online, you will receive an email telling you if you’ve won a prize.

Different Countries, Different Rules

Each participating country has its own rules when it comes to Vikinglotto. Here are some of the specific rules, as well as the add-on games which you can play when entering this lottery:

Getting a Player Card

Norway, Finland and Sweden give their participants the opportunity to register for a player card, regardless of them playing online or through a lottery retailer. In order to register, you must provide proof of identity, some personal details, as well as your bank details. In case you win any prizes, including the jackpot, you will receive the amounts straight to your account.

Winning with Joker

In Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, and Latvia, the Joker add-on game gives you the chance to win money if you match a set of random numbers in the exact order that they are drawn.

Every entry has a set of numbers between 0 and 9 and each number can appear more than once. In some participating countries, you are able to choose your own numbers, whilst others give you a random number selection.

Prices and prizes differ from country to country. Please ask your local lottery retailer for more information about this add-on game.

Adding a Plus Number

In Finland, you can add the Plus number for an extra €0.40. You will be assigned a random number between 1 and 30. After the main Vikinglotto draw has taken place, the winning Plus number will also be drawn. If you match it, you’ll multiply your non-jackpot prize won in the main draw by five times. This means that up to €1 million could be added to the original value of your prize. The best part is that even if you don’t win a prize in the main draw but match the Plus number, you would still win €5.

Doubling with Super Viking

In Belgium, participants automatically receive all the Viking numbers (from 1 to 5) for the entry price of €10. Then, they must choose a Super Viking number from 1 to 5. If the Super Viking number coincides with the Viking ball, any non-jackpot prize will be doubled if won.

Increasing Your Chances of Winning with Systems

When using systems, you have the opportunity to play multiple number combinations, thus increasing your chances of winning. In order to play a system, you must select eight or more numbers and play their combinations as individual lines. If you include more numbers in your system, you will get more lines.

Keep in mind that you must pay for every line that has been generated.

Who Can Play?

While most of the participating countries allow their players to enter only if they’re at least 18 years old, in Estonia and Lithuania the starting age for being able to play the lottery is 16 years old.

Ticket Sales Deadlines

In all participating countries except for Denmark and Iceland, the cut-off for ticket sales is 18:00 CET (19:00 EET). Denmark’s deadline is 17:55 CET, while Iceland’s is 17:00 CET.

After the draw has taken place, the sales commence at 20:00 CET (21:00 EET). However, in Finland they start at 21:30 CET (22:30 EET) and in Lithuania they resume at 21:00 CET (22:00 EET).

Biggest Vikinglotto Winner So Far

€44 Million

The biggest Vikinglotto jackpot was won in August 2016 by two tickets from Norway and Denmark. They shared the grand prize and each got approximately €22 million. The Norwegian ticket was owned by a Cooperative Bank of ten players who also won an extra €10 million for matching the Norwegian Lucky Number (in 2017, the Lucky Numbers were replaced by the Viking number).
