Vikinglotto Víkingalottó Onsdags Lotto

The Viking Lotto was the world’s very first multi-national lottery game designed so that a large jackpot lottery could be offered to the whole region of Scandinavia region at the same time as attracting new players and increasing the turnovers of each country’s own national lottery.

It began in 1993 in Norsk Tipping Hamar, Norway when the lotteries of 5 Nordic countries came together to create this Pan-Scandinavian lottery by forming the Viking Lotto bloc.

At the beginning, the countries involved were Lottery Norway with Norsk Tipping, Lottery Finland with Veikkaus, the Sweden Lottery with SvenskaSpel, the Denmark Lottery with Danske Spil and the Iceland Lottery with Íslensk Getspá.

A few years later Eesti Loto – the Estonia Lottery company – joined the VikingLotto bloc on March 22nd 2000 and began offering the Viking Lotto to its players making a new total of 6 countries that now took part in the VikingLotto.

February 2011 saw 2 further countries become members of the VikingLotto bloc and begin selling Viking Lotto tickets when Latvijas Loto from Lottery Latvia and Olifeja – the Lithuania Lottery company joined as VikingLotto members.

The VikingLotto had now expanded across the Scandinavian region even further and there were now a total of 8 countries taking part in this ever popular lottery.

The Viking Lotto is referred to by 7 different names across the 8 countries that particpate in it. It is frequently called the VikingLotto whilst in Denmark with Dansk Spil it is called the Onsdags Lotto and Onsdagslotto – which translated means the Wednesday Lotto.

With the Iceland Lottery it is known as the Víkingalottó whilst in Lithuania with Olifeja at perlas.lt it is known as the Vikingu Loto. Another name that is often used when referring to the game is the Viking Loto.

This VikingLotto is unusual in that the main jackpot prize offered is the same in all 8 member countries but the lower tier prizes are not.

All prizes and categories lower than the jackpot are decided locally by each individual particpating country. This is different to the other multi-national European lottery games – EuroMillions and the EuroJackpot where all of the prize categories including the jackpot are constant for each of the member countries.

Viking Lotto Overview

The very first VikingLotto draw took place in Norsk Tipping, Norway on March 17th 1993 and the game has grown in strength over the years becoming more and more popular.

The VikingLotto is a traditional jackpot, draw-style, lotto game which is operated by the 8 member countries of the VikingLotto Bloc.

Each time that the Viking Lotto jackpot is not won, it will "rollover" and be added onto the jackpot for the next draw, increasing in size each time and making for some large jackpot figures to be won.

Unusually amongst many world lottery games, the generally huge prize relating to the “Lucky Number(see below) will also “rollover” when it is not won and be added onto the Lucky Number prize fund for the following draw.

Draws for the Viking Lotto / Onsdags Lotto take place once every week on Wednesdays at 8.25pm CET and are drawn in Norsk Tipping, Hamar in Norway.

We are very pleased to have taken a detailed look at the VikingLotto game and would highly recommend taking a checking out how it works below…

Viking Lotto How it Works

The Viking Lotto uses a matrix of 6/48 which means that when you are playing the VikingLotto, you will first need to select 6 numbers out of a range of numbers from 1 to 48 that are drawn at the NorskTipping studios in Norway.

If you match all 6 of the main numbers drawn then you will be a winner of the first division prize – the VikingLotto jackpot.

After the 6 main numbers have been drawn 2 additional numbers
– the Bonus Numbers – are drawn by Norsk Tipping from the same drum out of the remaining 42 numbers which help to determine VikingLotto prizes on the lower levels.

When you play VikingLotto you will also automatically be playing for the Lucky Number "pot" at no extra cost. This additional amount is on top of the Viking Loto jackpot and is determined by a separate "Lucky Number" which is drawn by a random number generator before the 6 main numbers and 2 bonus numbers are drawn.

If you have correctly selected the 6 main winning Viking Lotto numbers and the Lucky Number drawn matches just 1 of these main numbers then you will also win the Lucky Number "pot" of money which can be a very large amount as well as the jackpot.

The only participating country and lottery company not to offer the Lucky Number prize fund is Lottery Sweden with Svenska Spel.

In addition to the jackpot itself and the Lucky Number prize, there are 4 other ways that you can win on the VikingLotto which means that are a huge number of prizes to be won every week.

The price for a 1 line entry in the VikingLotto varies slightly depending upon which country you are playing in – in Finland with Veikkaus it is € 0.80 per line, with NorskTipping and the Norway Lottery it is NOK 5, in Sweden with Svensk Spel it is SEK 4, Denmark Lottery tickets for the OnsdagsLotto are 40 kr and with Lottery Iceland it is 70 kr. With EestiLoto it is € 0.65 and with Loto Latvia it is 35 Santīmi whilst with Olifeja and the Lithuania Lottery it is 3 Litas.

You can buy Viking Lotto tickets every week up until 7pm CET on Wednesdays before the draw at 8.25pm in Norsk Tipping.

Viking Lotto Who Can Play?

As with the majority of lottery games around the world, previously only citizens of the operating countries were allowed to play in any of their lottery games. You used to have to purchase your lottery tickets from an authorized retailer based in one of the participating countries.

Today, though, this is not a problem as there are various online lottery ticket sales companies such as TheLotter who are both authorized and genuine you are able to select your Viking Lotto numbers and purchase your lottery tickets online from anywhere in the world.

This is great news of course if you live outside of Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia or Lithuania but still want to play the Norsk Tipping Viking Lotto / Onsdags Lotto / Vikingu Loto / Víkingalottó and ensure your entry into the next draw or simply want to have the convenience of being able to buy lottery tickets online.

Once you have entered into the VikingLotto draw, you can then easily check the VikingLotto results online to see how you have done and to find out if you have become one of the lucky VikingLotto winners.

Viking Lotto Information & Background

One of the most significant changes made to the VikingLotto since it began has been the addition of the "Lucky Number” which was introduced in 2004.

The Viking Lotto "Lucky Number" is drawn before the main Viking Lotto numbers and vastly increses the top prize on the condition that the "Lucky Number" matches one of the main numbers drawn.

This extra prize fund will rollover if it is not won and frequntly grows to a very large amount. All member countries apart from Sweden partake in the "Lucky Number" draw.

Another change made was to the lowest VikingLotto prize category with the aim of increasing lower tier winnings. Now, you only need to match 3 of the main numbers correctly whereas previously, 3 main numbers plus the bonus number were needed to claim the lowest tier prize in the draw from NorskTipping.
