Sweden Winning Numbers
Sweden Lottery Games
Lotteries have been available in Sweden since the end of the 19th century, although the first modern games didn’t launch until 1980 through the formation of Lotto. All national lotteries are operated by Svenska Spel, who in addition to lottery games, also sells scratchcards and operates sports betting and gambling platforms.
As well as participating in local games, Swedish players have the opportunity to enter transnational lotteries and their corresponding secondary games.
Lotto is Sweden’s national lottery, consisting of four draws collectively known as Lotto 1 and Lotto 2 that take place two evenings per week. Players can choose to enter Lotto 1 on its own if they wish, but cannot enter Lotto 2 without entering the first game.
As well as picking seven numbers from a possible 35 for standard entry, players can also take advantage of System Entry to choose up to 12 selections to increase the likelihood of winning.
Unlike in most countries that have a Joker game, in Sweden, the Joker unlocks the Super Jackpot called the Drömvinsten (Dream Win). For an extra SEK 10.00, players can win a minimum jackpot of SEK 75 million, as well as gaining entry into periodic Second Chance draws for the chance to win extra prizes.
Although EuroJackpot was launched in March 2012, Sweden only started to take part from February onwards the following year. Despite being the newest lottery game available to Swedes, EuroJackpot has since become hugely popular across the country.
EuroJackpot is available in a further 17 countries, with rollovers and huge jackpots being frequent due to the long odds of winning
Although EuroJackpot doesn’t have any secondary games, players can win prizes at 12 different tiers!
Sweden was a founding participant of Vikinglotto in 1993, which is now available in a further eight countries. Although Vikinglotto has longer odds and a smaller jackpot than EuroJackpot, the presence of System Entry and a secondary Joker game has seen it become hugely popular in Sweden. The timing of Vikinglotto on Wednesdays also gives players who missed out on Lotto, another chance to win.
