Sweden Lotto games date back as far as 1896 when Lotteriexpeditionen was formed. The very first Sweden lottery game was introduced in 1897 and the company’s name was eventually changed to Penninglotteriet.
Moving forward to 1934, a new Sweden Lottery company called AB Tipstjänst was created and was owned by the Swedish State government with a view to regulate all gambling in Sweden.
The 2 separate Swedish Lotto organisations – Penninglotteriet and AB Tipstjänst– amalgamated in 1997 and a new company was fomed. This new Lotto Sverige company was Svenska Spel which today organises & operates all of the Swedish Lotto games.
The Sweden Lotto is one of the most popular lottery games in Sweden and is played by a vast percentage of the Swedish population. Like all Swedish Lottery games it is run and operated by SvenskaSpel, the largest gaming operator in Sweden, who – under license from the Swedish government which own it entirely – control over half of the gaming market in the whole country.
There are numerous games offered by SvenskaSpel including the multi-national Viking Lotto and Euro Jackpot lotteries – other Sverige Lotto games such as the Keno, KenoXpress, Trisslot, SkrapLotto, SkrapBingo, 3 I Rad, Mitt Emellan, 17 Eller Mer, Rubbet & Lördagsgodis. Varrious sports & casino games like Stryktipset, Europatipset, Topptipset, Måltipset, Oddset, Bingo, Poker & Casino. Here we shall concentrate on the primary in-house Swedish Lottery game on offer – the Sweden Lotto…
The Sweden Lotto 7 35 – which is also known as the Svenska Spel Lotto – is a traditional jackpot, draw-style, lottery game and is the flagship lottery offered by Svenska Spel, the national lottery and gaming company that operates throughout Sweden.
It was back in 1980 that the Sweden Lotto was first launched by AB Tipstjänst and it is still highly popular and going very strong in Sweden all these years later, now being operated by Svenskaspel.
Svenska Spel draw the Sweden Lotto twice every week on both a Wednesdays and a Saturday. For each drawing, there are 2 separate draws that are made – known as Lotto 1 and Lotto 2.
You can enhance your winnings when taking part in this game by playing the Sweden Lotto with “Joker” too. If you win the Sweden Lotto playing with “Joker”, the amount you win will be dramatically increased. This is known as the “Drömvinsten” or “Dream Profit”.
The Sweden Lotto jackpot prize always starts off at a minumium of SEK 1 MILLION and this will rollover and rise every draw where there is no winner until someone successfully wins the top prize.
To win the Lotto Sweden “Drömvinsten” by playing with the Joker option, you will need to correctly match all of the 7 main winning numbers drawn plus have at least 2 correct digits on the Joker.
One very interesting aspect of the Lotto Sverige – Sweden Lotto is that it has such a low range of numbers to pick from, that it offers some of the best lottery odds out of most national lottery games.
We are pleased that we have taken a very close and detailed look at the highly popular Sweden Lotto 7 35 game and would strongly recommend taking a more informed look at how it works below…
The Sweden Lotto from Svenska Spel works with a 7/35 matrix meaning that when you play this Swedish Lottery, you will first need to select your 7 numbers out of a range of numbers from 1 to 35. As mentioned above, this offers one of the lowest available guess ranges out of most world lottery games prvoviding some of the best odds.
If you match all 7 of the main numbers drawn then you will be the lucky winner of a first division prize – the Sweden Lotto jackpot.
After the 7 main numbers are drawn, 4 additional numbers are then also drawn which are used for the 2nd division prize level.
In addition to the jackpot prize itself, there are 4 other ways in which you can win on the Lotto Sverige, which means that are a great number of prizes to be won twice per week for anyone who plays this long standing Swedish Lotto game from Svenskaspel.
A “QuickPick” facility is also available when you are playing the Sweden Lotto which is called “HuxFlux”. This is the same as the “Lucky Dip” option that is used with the UK National Lottery or Europe’s EuroMillions or nearly all USA lottery games. This means that you can request the lottery retailer or computer to randomly select all your Svenska Spel Lotto numbers for you.
So, playing the Sweden Lotto is simple…just select your own lotto numbers or ask for them to be randomly selected for you by choosing the “HuxFlux” option available from Svenskaspel.
Draws for the Sweden lotto take place twice every week on Wednesdays at 6.25pm and on Saturdays at 7.55pm CET.
The cost of each entry into the Sweden Lotto is SEK 3 per play and this allows you to play in both the Lotto 1 and Lotto 2 draws. To add the Joker option to your entry will cost at least SEK 10.
Like most worldwide lotto games, in the past only people living in Sweden were allowed to play in any of the Lottery Sweden Lottery from Svenska Spel including the Sweden Lotto – you used to have to purchase all your Sweden Lottery tickets from an authorized retailer that was based within Sweden.
Today, though, this is not a concern as there are a good selection of online lottery ticket sales companies such as TheLotter, LottoLand and MultiLotto that are both fully authorized and genuine – you are able to select your own Sweden Lotto numbers online and purchase your tickets no matter where in the world you may live.
This is great news of course if you live outside of Sweden and want to play the Sweden Lotto and ensure your entry into the next Svenskaspel draw or simply wish to have the convenience and ease of being able to buy lottery tickets online hassle free.
