"Slovenia Lottery games from Loterija Slovenije including EuroJackpot"
EuroJackpot € 90,000,000 Viking Lotto € 7,300,000
Slovenia Lottery games date as far back as 1890 when the Serbian National Class lottery was first established. This had to cease temporarily for the duration of World War 1 and then recommenced afterwards across the entire country of Yugoslavia.
In 1952 the National Class Lottery was renamed the Yugoslav Lottery and this operated until 1972 when the Lottery Institute of Slovenia was formed. This, in turn, was renamed the Lottery of Slovenia – Loterija Slovenije – in 1981 and is the company that we now have today operating Slovenia Lottery games across the country.
The most popular in-house lottery in Slovenia is the Loto 7 39 – known as the Loto Slovenia – which was first launched as far back as 1962, still going strong today and is as popular as ever.
A new Lotto Win draw was added to the Loto 739 in 2001 and the Lotto 7 39 was further enhanced in 2008 when the Loto PLUS was introduced. 2014 saw a jackpot cap pit on the Loto 7 39 meaning that the maximum the jackpot could rise to would be € 5 MILLION.
Loterija Slovenije joined the multi-national EuroJackpot lottery consortium of countries at the outset, on March 17th 2012 and subsequently joined the Nordic / Baltic group of countries that offered players the Viking Lotto game on November 9th 2017.
Today, the Slovenia Lottery offers its players various Loterija (Lottery) games including EuroJackpot, Viking Lotto, Loto 7 39, Loto Plus, Super Loto, 3x3, Tiki Taka and numerous scratch cards.
The biggest and the most popular loterija – lottery – in the Loto Slovenia portfolio of games is
the pan-european EuroJackpot which the Slovenia Lottery began selling
tickets for right at its beginning along with 6 other countries on March 17th 2012. The other countries to launch the game with Slovenia as a rival to EuroMillions were Germany, Finland, Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands and Estonia.
Over the years the number of countries now taking part in the Euro Jackpot has grown and now stands at 18 separate nations that participate in this lottery that is only 2nd in size to the EuroMillions.
The other countries to have subsequently joined the EuroJackpot group have been Spain, Croatia, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Norway, Sweden, Hungary, Slovakia and lastly Poland.
The biggest Eurojackpot win to have occurred in Slovenia to date has been a massive € 28.2 MILLION won on May 16th 2014 by a lucky player from Žalec. This is also the biggest overall jackpot win in the history of any Slovenia Lottery game from Loterija Slovenije.

The other multi-national lotto game to be offered by Loterija Slovenije is the highly popular Viking Lotto which was initially launched by 5 Scandinavian countries on March 14th 1993. The countries invloved at the outset were Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark & Iceland.
In the following years Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, also joined the Viking Lotto consortium and offered the game to its lottery players.
Loterija Slovenije then joined the other Nordic / Baltic countries in the Viking Lotto group on November 9th 2017 and began to offer Slovenia Lottery players the chance to buy Viking Lotto tickets.
This now meant that there were a total of 9 separate countries participating in draws of the Viking Lotto – the first and original multi-national lottery to have been introduced across Europe.
Draws for the Viking Lotto take place once every week on a Wednesday and the lottery draw is made at 8.00pm from the Norway Lottery headquarters in Norsk Tipping, Hamar, Norway.
The Viking Lotto jackpot commences at € 3 MILLION and will rollover each week that there are no jackpot winners produced. This means that it can rise as high as a massive € 35 MILLION.
The biggest Viking Lotto jackpot to have been won so far has been a huge € 44 MILLION which was won in 2016. This was before a jackpot cap of € 35 MILLION was introduced in 2017 and the prize was split between a group of 10 Norwegian players and a single winning ticket from Denmark. We still wait for a Viking Lotto jackpot to be won with Loto Slovenia but it is only a matter of time.
