Finland Lotto's entry fee is kept at a reasonable level. However, compared to well-known lotto games in Europe, these jackpots are not particularly remarkable. Nevertheless, the odds of winning are highly favorable and favor the Finland lottery game.
There are 18,643,560 to 1 odds of winning the Lotto jackpot. These odds are better than many national lottery games, although these lotteries often have similar or better odds but far larger payouts. With odds of 1 in 50, players can win Lotto prizes at seven distinct levels.
The odds of matching six plus Bonus Ball are 1 in 2,663,365, while those for matching six numbers only are 1 in 83,230. The odds for matching 5 and 4 are 1 in 681 and 1 in 97, respectively. The odds of getting three-plus Bonus Ball are 1 in 107, while that of Plus Number Only are 1 in 30
Payout Options for Finland Lotto Winners
Players must match all seven numbers to win the minimum prize, slightly over SEK 7.1 million ($650,000). Any dealer will give players profits up to 10,000 Swedish kronor ($900). The subsequent event is a rollover if there are no jackpot winners, which explains why Lotto Finland has recently had quite high jackpots.
The second reward is SEK 5.1 million for players who match six numbers, while those who match five numbers win SEK 20,000. Every Saturday there are draws. Compared to the best online lotteries worldwide, the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 15,380,000, which is excellent.
In Finland, lottery winnings must be claimed within a year of the draw date. If not, the award will be forfeited and donated to a worthy charity. Within three weeks of the claim date, rewards worth more than $20,000 will be paid out. Finland does not impose taxes on lottery winnings, which are only distributed as lump sum payments.
Prize claims are accepted for a year following the drawing. Individuals planning to play Lotto online from another country should check their country's tax regulations to see if prize wins need to be reported.
