Lottery Finland was developed in the summer of 1940 when Tipp Lotto was created. The first game in the country’s lottery was called “Constant” and its first run came in September of the same year. After being a part of Finland for over 70 years the lottery has become a true national tradition. The Finland Veikkaus Lotto game first took place in 1970 and within the first year of its launch became the most popular game in the country. Proceeds from Lottery Finland go toward several charitable organizations nationwide. It’s estimated that over 1 million Euro is generated every day through the lottery for various social programs.
