What Are Lotto 1 and Lotto 2?

All Swedish Lotto tickets, by default, are for two separate draws, Lotto 1 and Lotto 2, giving you two different chances to win.

Why Does My Ticket Cost $4.00 Not $1.50?

The default Swedish Lotto ticket is for entry to both Lotto 1 and Lotto 2 ($3) and with the Extra Game ($1) (see below) added on. If you only want to enter Swedish Lotto 1 simply set ‘Select drawings’ to ‘Only LOTTO 1’ and set the Extra Game to ‘None’.

What Is a Subscription?

Our Subscription feature allows you to set up a running bet or bets on a given lottery draw. The subscription is open ended and will run for as long as you want it too. You can opt out at any time and cancel the subscription in your player account. Please find more information here: How to cancel a subscription

What Does "Participation: When Jackpot Is" mean?

This option allows you to only participate when the jackpot is a set amount or higher. So if you choose $7 million, you will only enter the next draw when the jackpot is at a minimum of $7 million.

What Is the ‘Extra Game’?

The ‘Extra Game’ gives you another way to play the Swedish Lotto and win even more money. For $1 extra, 7 randomly selected numbers from 0-9 will be entered into a 2nd draw of numbers also from 0-9.

To win you need to match your numbers to those drawn in any order. You don’t need to win Swedish Lotto to win the Extra Game however, you cannot enter the Extra Game without playing the Swedish Lotto and if you do win both then you will be the winner of the Drömvinsten, the ‘Dream Win’, which in the past has reached almost €25 million (approx. $40 million).

Seem complicated? It’s not as bad as it first sounds. Here’s an example:
  • You pick the Extra Game numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7. You didn’t win anything at Lotto.
  • The Extra Game Numbers are 5,3,1,1, 6, 7. You have matched the last 2 numbers: 6 and 7.
  • You have won the minimum Extra Game prize and therefore win €8.70 even though you didn’t win anything playing Swedish Lotto.
Here’s another example:
  • You pick the Extra Game numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7. You won €130 (approx. $195) playing Lotto.
  • The Extra Game Numbers are 1,1,3,5,4,6,2. Unfortunately you don’t win the Extra Game. Even though you matched several numbers they are not in the correct order.
  • But you have won €130 (approx. $195) playing Swedish Lotto, which is unaffected.
Here’s a final example:
  • You pick the Extra Game numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7. You won €130 (approx. $195) playing Lotto.
  • The Extra Game Numbers are 1,2,3,3,5,6,7. You have won matched 6 numbers (not 3+3) so you’ve won an extra €25,000 (approx. $40).
  • Add that to the €100 (approx. $150) you won Swedish Lotto and you’ve won a tidy €25,000 (approx. $40)!

What Is the ‘Dream Win’ or Drömvinsten?

Swedish Lotto has a super jackpot (called ‘Drömvinsten’ – the ‘Dream Win’ in Sweden) and occurs when you match all 7 numbers on Swedish Lotto and get at least 2 numbers correct on the Extra Game. The Dream win starts at just under €8 million and increases about €160,000 (approx. $240,000) each week until it is won. The largest Dream Win on record was just over €25 million (approx. $40 million).

The odds of winning the Drömvinsten are 1:337,915,578. Any Extra Bet made on the Extra Game will not increase the amount won on the Drömvinsten.

What Is the Minimum Jackpot?

Swedish Lotto has no minimum jackpot as prizes are based on ticket sales.

What Is the Maximum Jackpot?

The biggest Drömvinsten of all time was 237,697,528 kr (approx. $40 million). The Extra Game top prize for matching all 7 numbers is fixed at €1,000,000 (approx. $1,500,000).

What Are the Odds of Winning Swedish Lotto?

There are 6 prize divisions for the Swedish Lotto:
Matched Numbers Odds of Winning
7 1:6,724,520
6+1 1:240,161
6 1:40,027
5 1:847
4 1:59

* Unlike to the UK lottery for example, prizes for the Swedish lottery are based on the total lotto pool, meaning the prizes are approximates, they may go up or down each week.

How Can I Increase My Chances to Win the Swedish Lotto?

There are no scientifically proven ways to increase your odds of winning the Lotto short of playing more numbers. You can do this either through playing ‘Combo’ tickets by selecting extra numbers or by playing in lottery syndicates. Playing in a lottery group with friends, family, colleagues or teammates is a great way to disperse costs and increase your chances of winning by pooling tickets.
