Finland Lotto 7/40, also known as Veikkaus Lotto, is a once-a-week lottery draw held on Saturdays in Helsinki. It is the largest lottery played by about 70% of the Finnish population and other players around the world.
Players in Finland can buy their tickets at a POS or the official Veikkaus website for €1 per entry. Players outside Finland can play on third-party websites. It has a minimum jackpot of €700,000 but is frequently over €1 million with the record being €14.1 million.
Players select 7 numbers out of 40 and can opt for a Plus number that will multiply all non-jackpot prizes by 5 for an extra €0.50.
The draw can be watched live on the MTV3 channel, or the results checked on the Veikkaus website or a third-party site for non-Finnish players. Players need to hit all 7 numbers to win the jackpot. Prizes are paid as tax-free, lump sums and need to be claimed up to 1 year after the draw.
