This is a new international lottery being launched in Belgian by the National lottery. It has existed since 1993 in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
In 2017, it was introduced to Slovenia and prior that Iceland has joined the Vikinglotto club. With constant expansion, the lottery reached Belgian with its offer to participate in this lottery.
The pattern to play is quite similar to other international lotteries. Players are supposed to pick six numbers from the pool of integers between 1 to 48. A bonus number called the Viking number is to be picked from 1 to 8.
The 6 numbers and the Viking number are picked from different pools therefore, there is a possibility of one digit repeating twice. The jackpot is drawn on every Wednesday at 8:00 CET at Norsk Tipping in Hammar, Norway.
