Lotto is Sweden’s national lottery game.
Draws are held twice weekly on Wednesdays at 18:20 and Saturdays at
20:00 local time, with two draws taking place at a time for a total of
four chances to win! These draws are known as Lotto 1 and Lotto 2.
Entry costs SEK 3.00 to enter Lotto 1 only, or SEK
6.00 to play both games.
To play, choose seven numbers between 1 and 35, or go for a
Quick Pick for a set of randomly generated numbers.
System Entry allows players to choose up to 12 numbers to increase the
chances of winning.
Players can add Joker to their ticket for SEK 10.00. This
unlocks the Super Jackpot known locally as the Drömvinsten or Dream Win, which
also enters players into Second Chance draws that take place throughout the
year. Players can buy up to three Joker/Second Chance entries at a time, with
all Second Chance entries accumulating since the previous draw and
automatically being entered into the next one, giving players an even better
chance to win extra cash prizes.
Up to 10 weeks Advance Play is also available, or subscribe to Lotto to
never miss a draw.
Lotto has a minimum guaranteed jackpot of SEK 1
This lottery has no rollover or jackpot cap, with the top prize often
growing significantly higher. Players who add the Joker to their ticket can win
the Super Jackpot worth at least SEK 75 million.
The biggest ever Lotto jackpots are:
The odds of winning the Lotto Super Jackpot are 1 in 337,915,578, while the
chances of winning the regular jackpot are much lower at 1 in 6,724,520.
Players looking to win larger amounts may prefer US Powerball or Mega
Millions due to their bigger jackpots.
Lotto has six different prize tiers.
Lottery prizes in Sweden are paid out as lump sums only, which are not
