How to Play
Vikinglotto players are required to choose six numbers between 1 and 48 and a Viking number between 1 and 5. Participants can either select their own numbers or opt for a Quick Pick, where a random set of numbers will be automatically generated.
To win the jackpot, players must match all six main numbers and the Viking number. The jackpot starts at a minimum of €3 million, and if it is not won, it rolls over to the following draw. Once the jackpot hits its cap of €25 million, additional prize money is added to the prize tier below it, which is won by matching all six main numbers without the Viking number.
The top two prize tiers are shared between all the participating countries, but the rest of the prizes are set individually by each nation. A percentage of the revenue from each ticket sale contributes to the shared prize fund, and any leftover money is distributed among the remaining prize tiers in each country.
The following table shows the different prize tiers and the odds of winning in each category.
