What to Look Out For

Lottery scams can be quite easy to spot if you know what to look out for. Follow these simple steps and you should be able to identify whether a piece of correspondence is a scam or genuine:

  • Scammers will often state that there is a certain timeframe in which you need to contact them to collect your prize. This is to pressurise you and rush you into giving them your details before you seek any advice or properly think about the decision you are making.
  • If you are told you must keep your win confidential, this is another sign that something could be too good to be true. Scammers will do this to stop you from mentioning your win to someone else who might see that it isn’t genuine.
  • Letters sent to you through the post or via email by scammers often have spelling mistakes and poor grammar. These can be a sign that English is not the first language of the senders; official communications would be unlikely to have these problems.

Joker

An additional game called the Joker can be played alongside Finland’s Lotto. To play, choose seven numbers between 0 and 9. You can pick the same number more than once. On the night of a draw, a seven-digit Joker number is randomly generated, and you win prizes when you match the same digits in the same place.

For example, if the Joker number generated is 1291268, the number 1234567 would win because it matches three digits in the same place: 12***6*. The more numbers you match, the bigger the prize.

The cost of playing Joker is €2, and you can also play Double Joker for an extra €1. The Double Joker game is played in the same way, except that when the last digit of the Joker number is matched, any prizes you win are doubled.

Joker prizes are fixed amounts. The value of the jackpot is set by lottery providers Veikkaus before the draw and although it is usually set at €1 million (€2 million for Double Joker) it can change from draw to draw.

Below you can see the prizes available in Finland’s Joker and the odds of winning in each tier.

6 1 in 158,730 €20,000 €40,000

Top 10 Biggest Vikinglotto Winners

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

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.

November 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.

April 2018
€33,251,902

A Norwegian man was the sole winner of the third-biggest prize in the lottery’s history, but he told officials at providers Norsk Tipping that he vowed to continue working despite the windfall.

May 2013
€28,528,569

A man from Troms in Norway matched all six main numbers, as well as the international Lucky Number pot and Norwegian Lucky Number pot. This jackpot would stand as the record amount won on a single ticket for nearly four and a half years.

April 2017
€24,165,351

A Cooperative Bank of ten Norwegian players split the top prize to take home over €2 million each.

You can learn more about Cooperative Banks on our Systems page.

November 2012

Two tickets — one bought from a gas station in Helsinki, Finland, and one from Denmark — both matched all six numbers to take home over €7.5 million each.

August 2013
€8,521,061

In 2013, a Danish ticket holder became the second-biggest lottery winner in the country’s history after landing the jackpot in the Onsdags Lotto (later renamed Vikinglotto). This is the biggest Vikinglotto jackpot win ever claimed outside of Norway.

May 2014
€7,495,511

Another Finnish winner, this one from Suomussalmi, landed just under €7.5 million to become the country’s biggest single jackpot winner.

June 2017
€7,425,449

Won by a single ticket holder from Denmark. The ticket was bought from a Golden Baker store in Vordingborg, and was the eighth-biggest lottery win in Denmark’s history at the time.

October 2013

Joker

There are two different Joker games in Latvia that can both be played alongside Latloto 5 of 35. The standard game is played with six numbers and there is a separate game, called Joker 7, played with seven numbers. Here are the the latest results for both draws:

Joker
19th August 2020

  • 7
  • 3

  • 4

Joker 7
19th August 2020

  • 6
  • 2
  • 8
  • 4
  • 9
  • 6
  • 4

To play, choose six or seven numbers (depending on which game you’re playing) between 0 and 9. The same number can be chosen more than once. A series of winning Joker numbers will then be drawn alongside the Latloto 5 of 35 draw. You win prizes by matching your numbers with the digits of the winning Joker series in the exact order, starting from the back.

For example, if the winning Joker 7 series was 2233567, the chosen number 1234567 would win because it matches three digits in the same place from the back: ****567. The more numbers you match, the greater the prize.

Both Joker games cost €1.50 to play. The extra digit means that it is more difficult to win when playing Joker 7, but the prizes are bigger. The two Joker games are played separately, with different winning numbers and prize pools. Below you can see the prizes and odds of winning in each game.

Numbers Matched in Correct Position (from the back) Odds of Winning Prize
6 1 in 1,000,000 €150,000
5 1 in 100,000 €6,000
4 1 in 10,000 €600
3 1 in 1,000 €60
2 1 in 100 €15

4 1 in 10,000 €600
3 1 in 1,000 €60

System Games

You can also play system games in Latloto. Choose between six and ten numbers and then each combination of five numbers within your selected set will be entered into the game. The cost increases with each additional combination you play but the chances of winning also improve.

Numbers Selected Combinations Total Cost
5 1 €0.75
6 6 €4.50
7 21 €15.75
8 56 €42
9 126 €94.50
10 252 €189

Interesting Facts

Latloto 5 of 35 was launched in January 1993. The record for the largest jackpot dates back to May 2014, when a player from Tukums won €175,942.

Prizes

Some of the Lotto prizes are fixed amounts and some are calculated on a pari-mutuel basis, which means they depend on how many tickets are sold and how many winners there are in each tier. The prize tiers for matching five and six numbers, or six numbers plus the bonus, each receive a set percentage of the total prize fund. The remaining money is then used to pay out the fixed-value prizes, including the jackpot.

The value of the jackpot is determined by lottery provider Veikkaus before the draw. If it is not won in a given draw, it will roll over to the next one and will continue to do so until someone wins it.
