What is Vikinglotto?
Vikinglotto is a transnational lottery game played across several Northern European countries. It stands out as the first of its kind in Europe, allowing players from different nations to participate in a shared lottery draw. In Vikinglotto, participants choose six main numbers, typically from a range of 1 to 48, and an additional Viking number, from a separate pool. The draw involves selecting these numbers randomly, and players win by matching their chosen numbers with the drawn ones. The more numbers matched, the higher the prize.
The game offers a variety of prize tiers, with the jackpot being the most coveted. The jackpot starts at a minimum amount and can roll over to subsequent draws if not won, often reaching substantial sums. Vikinglotto also includes additional regional prizes specific to each participating country, enhancing the chances of winning something.
Playing Vikinglotto is straightforward, with tickets available both at physical retailers and online platforms in the participating countries. This lottery is not just about the potential of winning big; a portion of the proceeds is typically allocated towards various charitable causes and public welfare projects within each participating country, adding a philanthropic aspect to the thrill of gaming.
