Norway lotto: latest results and information

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.

Join a syndicate

Joining a syndicate, you pool your resources with other players and get your share of multiple lines of lottery numbers. All prizes won are shared among the syndicate members. By joining a syndicate, you increase your chances of winning without having to spend more money. Some syndicates allow you to buy multiple shares, which means, that you have the opportunity to deposit more money and get the most of your winnings.

Lottery syndicates, usually, organized with friends, family members or co-workers, however joining an online syndicate removes the inconvenience of starting your own syndicate. By choosing, how many shares can you buy, and for how many weeks do you want to play, you can become part of an online syndicate and increase your chances of winning the Vikinglotto jackpot.

Playing system games

System games allow you to cover all number combinations in a specific range. For, to play the system game, you need to choose eight or more numbers and play any possible combination of them in the lottery. This is a good way to increase your chances of winning., however it is worth remembering, what do you need to pay for each line played, so if you are playing system game, which generates 100 lines, you will need to pay for everything 100 tickets.

Cm. System games page, for more information on how, how system games work.

Participation in joint banks

Joint banks are a combination of system games and syndicates. You pool your money with other players, like a syndicate, and use funds, to pay for a certain number of system games. The cost of playing in a joint bank depends on, which system do you choose. The more lines you play, the higher the cost. As in the union, all prize money is divided among the members of the joint bank, however you can invest more, to get higher winnings.

Winning With Systems

The more numbers you play in a system, the more chances you have to win, as you will enter more lines into the draw. You also have the chance of winning multiple prizes, as each line is generated from the same range of numbers.

For example, if you played a 7+1 system and one of your lines matched all six main numbers and the Viking number drawn, your six other lines would also win a prize in a lower tier, as shown below:

Numbers Played in System Winning Vikinglotto Numbers Drawn
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 + Viking 8 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 + Viking 8

2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 + Viking 8 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 + Viking 8 5 + 1 Tier

SuperLotto

SuperLotto - Special Draws, which take place at certain times of the year with an approximate prize pool 50 million crowns. Every player, who buys a line in regular Lotto, participates in the next SuperLotto. The more lines you buy, the more tickets you will have. You do not need to purchase an additional ticket to play SuperLotto.

SuperLotto is held in the form of a draw, in which each winning ticket brings the owner 1 million crowns. for example, if in the prize pool 50 million crowns, is played out 50 winning tickets; if in the prize pool 45 million crowns, is played out 45 winning tickets, etc..

A portion of the ticket proceeds from each Lotto draw goes to the next SuperLotto prize pool.

System games and joint banks

System games allow you to cover a wide variety of lottery numbers. Pick eight or more numbers, to play the system game. All possible combinations of these numbers will become a separate line in the Lotto draw. for example, if you are playing an eight number system game, you fill eight lines in a draw, since there are eight distinct combinations of these numbers:

Selected numbers: 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18
Combination 1 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16
Combination 2 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 18
Combination 3 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 18
Combination 4 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 18
Combination 5 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 18
Combination 6 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18
Combination 7 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18
Combination 8 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18

The more numbers you select in the system game, the more lines you fill, however, the price will also rise. Systemic play with selected 12 numbers will create 792 separate lines and will cost 3 960 crown.

Joint banks work in a similar way, except that, that the cost is shared across multiple players. All prizes are divided equally among the group members. Joint banks provide an excellent opportunity to cover a lot of numbers without paying a large sum for the game.

Interesting fact

The first Lotto draw has passed 19 April 1986 r. Players had to pick seven numbers ranging from 1 to 34, also two balls were drawn at random. The jackpot was 52 281 € (500 000 crown) for guessing all seven main numbers.

The first millionaire of the lottery was a woman from Harstad, which won 143 024 € (1,3 million crowns) in the year of the lottery release. The ticket holder played a system game and matched the seven main numbers and an additional bonus number. She also won seven other prizes, and all her winnings were 1,3 million crowns.

Types of Vikinglotto Scams

There are several Vikinglotto scams that you should look out for. They include:

Mobile

You might receive a text message saying you have won a prize after your number was randomly selected to win. These types of promotion do not exist, and Vikinglotto would never inform you of such a win via text message. Do not follow any links sent in suspicious text messages.

Telephone

Scammers sometimes pose as official lottery representatives over the telephone. They will ask you for your bank details and personal information so they can send your prize to you. Never give these types of details out to strangers over the phone.

Social media

The rise of social media has enabled a new type of scam, in which you receive a message via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or another social media platform, saying you are the winner of a lottery prize. Always remember that you cannot enter Vikinglotto through any social media platform and you would never be informed of a win via social media. You can only play online through authorised lottery concierge services and offline at authorised ticket retailers.

Letter

In a postal scam, you would receive a letter informing you of a lottery win. The letter might not be addressed to you personally and may just say ‘Dear Winner,’ which is an easy way to tell that it isn’t genuine. The letter might be poorly written or may otherwise look unofficial.

Winning with system games

The more numbers are played in the system game, the higher the chances of winning, as more lines are played. You also have a chance to win some prizes, since each line is generated from the same range of numbers.

for example, if you are playing a system game 7+1, and one of your lines will have all six main numbers and the Viking number, the other six lines will also win a lower tier prize, as below.

Numbers, played in the system game Vikinglotto Winning Numbers
