Vikinglotto Winners

The biggest Vikinglotto jackpot ever won was €44 million, which was split between two winning tickets in 2016. In 2017, a jackpot cap of €35 million was introduced, meaning that this record amount is unlikely to be surpassed. Once the jackpot reaches this cap, any additional funds from ticket sales are diverted to the prize tier below, which is also capped at €35 million.

Top 10 Biggest Vikinglotto Winners

Below are the ten biggest ever Vikinglotto winners across all participating countries:

Oslo
August 2016
€44,262,542

Before the jackpot cap was introduced, two tickets - one from Norway and one from Denmark - split the biggest prize in the lottery’s history. Both matched the six main Vikinglotto numbers as well as the international Lucky Number to win €22 million each. The Norwegian ticket, which was owned by a Cooperative Bank of ten players, also matched the Norwegian Lucky Number to win an additional 100 million kroner (€10 million). The Lucky Number pots were replaced by the Viking number in 2017.

€35,367,365

In November 2017, a woman from Oslo won the second-biggest prize ever seen in Vikinglotto and the third-biggest lottery prize ever won in Norway. No one had won the jackpot since 14th June that year, so it had rolled over for nearly six months before it was won.
