Vikinglotto Prizes

The Vikinglotto jackpot starts at €3 million and can grow up to a maximum of €35 million. The jackpot and the second prize are shared between all participating countries on a pari-mutuel basis, and all contribute to the prize fund for these two tiers. Smaller prizes are determined at a national level, using the remaining funds from ticket sales.

You need to match all six main numbers plus the Viking number to win the jackpot, or all six main numbers without the Viking number to win the second prize. The table below shows how much money from the sale of each Vikinglotto ticket goes towards the top two prize tiers.

MatchNumbers MatchedPrize Allocation (per line sold)
Match 6 and Viking Ball€0.110
Match 6€0.018

The chances of winning the Vikinglotto jackpot are 1 in 98,172,096. See the Odds page for more information.

After the prize money for the top two tiers has been shared, each lottery provider is free to decide how many prizes are available at a national level. In most countries, the prize amounts are calculated on a pari-mutuel basis, meaning that they are determined by the number of tickets sold and the number of winners in a particular tier.

Denmark

There are five additional prize tiers in Denmark. The lowest prize for matching three numbers is fixed at 60 kr, meaning it will not change even if very few or many players win in this tier in Denmark. All other prizes are calculated on a pari-mutuel basis using the remaining funds, with the largest percentage directed to the highest prize tier.

Estonia Flag
Estonia

To win a Vikinglotto prize in Estonia you need to match at least three main numbers. Matching the Viking number further increases the amount you can win. Some prize tiers receive the same percentage of money from the national fund, but individual prize amounts will differ depending on how many winners there are in each tier. As there are fewer winners in the higher tiers, the payout for each player will be bigger.

In Finland, you can play Vikinglotto Plus for an additional €0.40. If you match your randomly generated Plus number with the one drawn alongside the Vikinglotto numbers, any non-jackpot prize you win in the main draw will be multiplied by five. Up to €1 million can be added to the value of your original prize in this way. Matching the Plus number alone wins you €5.

Latvia Flag
Latvia

There are six additional ways to win prizes in Latvia. You need to match at least three numbers, and if you match the Viking number you will receive an even larger award. In Latvia, a portion of ticket revenue goes into a national Reserve Fund, allowing the lottery provider to stage special draws at certain points throughout the year or boost the prizes available to Vikinglotto winners. This is separate to the Booster Fund that all participating countries contribute to.

Lithuania has the most prize tiers of any participating country and you only have to match a minimum of two numbers to win. 24% of Lithuania’s prize fund is split between the top five national prize tiers on a pari-mutuel basis. The remaining 76% goes into the three lower prize tiers, but these are fixed amounts so do not receive a specific percentage of the prize fund.

Sweden Flag
Sweden

Sweden has three additional prize tiers, with the lowest prize awarded to players who match three main numbers. This is the only country to offer nothing at a national level for matching the Viking number as well as the main numbers, which also means it has the fewest prize tiers of any participating country.

Booster Fund

A Booster Fund is also in place, which receives €0.032 from every line of Vikinglotto numbers purchased. This is primarily to ensure there is always enough money available to pay for the minimum jackpot of €3 million. If the Booster Fund exceeds €7.5 million, the excess money is added to the jackpot prize fund for the next draw.

For countries that don’t use euros, the exchange rate on the date of the draw is used to calculate how much they need to pay into the shared prize pool. This ensures that all participating countries contribute an equal amount from each ticket sold.

Rollovers

If the jackpot is not won in any given draw, it rolls over to the next one and continues to do so until a player wins it or it reaches €35 million. The prize is capped at this amount, so if it is still not won after this point, any additional funds from ticket sales are diverted down to the second prize tier, which also has a cap of €35 million.

The prize for the second tier can never be higher than the jackpot. If the second prize also reaches a value of €35 million, further funds from ticket sales are then distributed among the winners in the tier below.
