If you play Viking Lotto you will be participating in a draw run by numerous countries. Launched in 1993 it was the first of its kind in Europe. The draw is a cooperation of the national lotteries from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. The first prize takes into account all the money pooled from the above countries, whilst the secondary prizes are organized and distributed by the individual nations. This arrangement differs from the famous Euromillions draw where all the prizes are taken from one combined pot. Should you decide to play Viking Lotto you will need to select 6 numbers between 1 and 48. During the draw 6 main numbers are drawn and then 2 additional numbers. Players need to match the 6 main numbers with their chosen 6 for the jackpot. The remaining prizes are then allocated through the various combinations of the rest of the balls. In Denmark Viking Lotto is known as Onsdags Lotto which translates as ‘’Wednesday Lotto’’ which will of course let those who play Viking Lotto know which day the draw takes place.
