Finland Winning Numbers
Finland Lottery Games
Although lotteries have been around in Finland since the 1940s, the first Lotto draw didn’t take place until 1971. Lottery games are a huge part of Finnish culture, with over 20 different games in total, but most of these are only available locally. As well as participating in several lottery games and other forms of gambling offered by the lottery operator, Veikkaus, Finns can also play the transnational EuroJackpot and Vikinglotto games.
Lotto is Finland’s national lottery and one of the most popular games in the country.
Lotto is simple to play, with players choosing seven numbers from a possible 40, as well as being relatively inexpensive to enter at just €1.00 per ticket. Players can use a System and Rake entry to choose up to 18 numbers and enhance their chances of winning, while an additional €0.50 adds Plus to the ticket to double potential winnings, with the exception of the jackpot.
A Joker game with a fixed jackpot of €1 million is also available to Lotto players for €2.00 per line.
Played in Finland and a further 17 countries, EuroJackpot has the most lucrative minimum jackpot available to Finnish lottery players, and with its long odds leading to frequent rollovers, there are often opportunities to win huge sums of money.
EuroJackpot doesn’t have any secondary games, but does have 12 prize tiers for multiple opportunities to win!
Vikinglotto is another transnational lottery played in Finland and in eight further countries, but due to Finland having a high amount of lottery games of its own, Vikinglotto isn’t quite as popular here as it is elsewhere.
Vikinglotto also has a number of System Entry options, but unlike other participating countries, the additional Joker game cannot be played in Finland.
