You can also enter the Joker draw for an additional 20 kr per line. It can be played alongside the main Norway Lotto and Vikinglotto draws, or it can be played as a standalone game.
You are assigned five random numbers, and you must match two, three, four or five numbers in the exact order they are drawn to win a prize. The more numbers you match, the bigger the prizes.
One player in each draw is randomly chosen as the ‘Joker Candidate’ and is awarded a prize, with the opportunity to play another game to increase their winnings. Norsk Tipping contacts the Joker Candidate directly to play this additional game.
|Numbers matched in correct order||Odds of Winning|
|5 matched||1 in 90,000|
|4 matched||1 in 2,045|
|3 matched||1 in 116|
|2 matched||1 in 13|
SuperLotto is a special draw that takes place at certain points throughout the year, with an estimated prize pool of 50 million kr. Every player who buys a line for the normal Lotto draw is entered into the next SuperLotto; the more lines you buy, the more entries you receive. There is no additional cost to play SuperLotto.
The SuperLotto takes the form of a raffle and every winning entry that is drawn wins 1 million kr. For example, if there is 50 million kr in the prize pool, 50 winning entries will be drawn; if there’s 45 million kr in the prize pool, 45 winners will be drawn, and so on.
A portion of the ticket revenue from every Lotto draw funds the prizes for the next SuperLotto.
System Games and Cooperative Banks
System games allow you to cover a large range of lottery numbers. To play a system, choose eight or more numbers. Every possible combination of those numbers will then be entered as a separate line in the Lotto draw. For example, if you were to play a system with eight numbers, you would enter eight lines into the draw, as there are eight separate combinations of those numbers:
|Numbers Chosen:||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 choose in your system, the more lines you would enter, but the cost would also increase. A system where you chose 12 numbers would generate 792 separate lines and would cost 3960 kr.
Cooperative Banks work in a similar way, except that you split the cost with other players. Any prizes won are then divided equally among the members of the group. Cooperative Banks offer a great way of covering a lot of numbers without having to pay too much more to play.
The first Lotto draw took place on 19th April 1986. Players had to pick seven numbers between 1 and 34, and two bonus numbers were also drawn at random. The jackpot available then was €52,281 (500,000 kr) for matching all seven main numbers.
The lottery’s first ever millionaire was a woman from Harstad who won €143,024 (1.3 million kr) in the lottery’s inaugural year. The ticket holder played a system game, matching the seven main numbers and an additional bonus number. She won seven other prizes as well as the jackpot amount, totalling 1.3 million kr.

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.
