How the Viking Lotto appeared and who plays it?

Vikinglotto lottery - a joint project
Scandinavian and Baltic countries. Interestingly, she was the first
multinational lottery in Europe, even before the appearance of such famous games as EuroMillions
and Eurojackpot. Viking lotto draws were started with 17 Martha 1993 of the year.
This was preceded by negotiations between companies - organizers of national lotteries
Scandinavian countries.

IN 1992 year of TipstjänstAb (Sweden, now called SvenskaSpel), NorskTipping (Norway), DanskTipstjeneste (Denmark, сейчас DanskeSpil), ÍslenskGetspá (Iceland) and the Veikkaus lottery (Finland) entered into an agreement to release a weekly lottery, uniting all the listed countries. This is how the Viking Lotto appeared - the first supranational lottery in Europe at that time..

Thus, at the origins of Vikinglotto
there were five states - Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland. IN 2000
Estonia joined the lottery with its national lottery EestiLoto,
and in 2011 year - Latvia and Lithuania with national lotteries LatvijasLoto and Olifeja
respectively. I.e, to the second decade of the XXI century list of participating countries
Viking Lotto rose to eight and included, besides the Scandinavian states, also
all Baltic countries.

Large-scale reform of the Viking Lotto was
held in 1997 year, when the players began to choose 6 numbers from 1 to 45 and 2
additional numbers. At the same time, the cost of tickets also increased - from 2 crowns to 3
crown, which allowed to significantly increase the Vikinglotto prize fund and to award
winners every week. From that time it became enough to guess 3
main numbers, to be eligible for a prize. This norm has increased the chances
players to earn money in the lottery and, hence, led to an increase in popularity
games in scandinavian countries.

IN 1998 Viking lottery for the first time
exceeded the annual turnover in 1 billion kroons. For twenty seven years of existence
Viking lotto lottery jackpot rose to 35 million. Vikinglotto's rise in popularity has contributed to,
what in 2017 year the ninth participating country - Slovenia - joined the game.
Thus, the lottery has crossed the borders of Scandinavia and the Baltic States. By the way, in
Slovenia makes it even easier to win the lottery, than in the Scandinavian or Baltic
countries - just guess 2 main numbers, to get the first prize.
