How to play
Select seven numbers from 1 to 40, along with two separate Bonus Balls from the same pool. You must match all seven numbers drawn in order to win the jackpot.
When purchasing a ticket, you can opt to play the double-up feature (known as the Tuplaus) by paying an additional €0.25. Before the main draw, a number is drawn from the 40 available and, should it match the Tuplaus number, the value of any prize won will be doubled - even the jackpot!

It is estimated that around 4,000 Finns a week select the numbers 3, 9, 15, 21, 27, 33 and 39. These numbers make up the third column of a Finnish Lotto ticket.
