How to Play Lotto

Playing Swedish Lotto is both quick and easy. All you have to do is select seven numbers from 35 and enter them into the Wednesday or Saturday draw. You can also decide to enter Lotto 2, which is played in the same way on the same night. You cannot take part in Lotto 2 without also playing Lotto 1. Adding the Joker to your ticket increases your chances of winning and is a must if you want to be in with a chance of winning the Dromvinsten.

Select Your Numbers

The first step of playing the Swedish Lotto is choosing your numbers. Choose seven numbers from 35 to make one line. You can play up to 15 lines in each game of Lotto, which increases your chances of winning a prize. If you're stuck on which numbers to play you can have them randomly generated for you by the Generator.

Playing Joker

To play Joker, you must also have entered Lotto 1. Joker is played by selecting seven numbers from 0 to 9, and the same number can be chosen multiple times. It is the order in which you enter your numbers that determines the prize you win.

Decide How Many Draws

You can enter your numbers for one single draw, multiple draws or you can subscribe to every future draw. By doing this, you will never miss the chance to win on Lotto.


Anyone who plays both Lotto and Joker is also automatically entered into the draw to win the Drömvinsten. You have to have played Lotto and Joker in the same game and you must match 7 numbers in Lotto and at least 2 numbers in Joker. Visit the Drömvinsten page to find out more.

How to win Lotto

To win the Lotto jackpot you must match the seven winning numbers. If you are the only player to match all seven numbers, you are guaranteed a jackpot of at least 1 million kronor. You can win a Lotto prize for matching as little as 4 numbers.

Playing at a Shop

To play Lotto in a shop, all you need to do is fill out a playslip with your chosen numbers or request a random Quick Pick. You just have to decide which draw to enter and how many lines you want to play, and the retailer will provide you with your ticket when you pay.

You’ll need a Svenska Spel account number to play in a shop.

You should still make sure you keep your ticket safe to help you claim any prizes you might win.
