Vikinglotto

Vikinglotto was the first multi-national lottery in Europe, and is now played in nine different countries. It offers jackpots from €3 million to €35 million, and can be played with various supplementary games, most notably, the Wednesday ‘Joker.’

How to Play

To play Vikinglotto, you choose six numbers between 1 and 48, plus one Viking number between 1 and 8. The Viking number is drawn from a separate pool, so it can be the same as a main number. You can either select your own numbers or go for a Quick Pick and have a random set generated for you. The game can be played online or via authorised retailers in any of the participating countries. Draws take place in Hamar, Norway, every Wednesday at 20:00 CET.

See the Vikinglotto website for more details.
