Finnish mystery during prohibition: what does 5-4-3-2-1-0 mean?

Earlier in the twentieth century, countries everywhere introduced and abolished dry laws. This has not bypassed Finland. So, even before the First World War in the Russian Empire, they banned the sale of strong alcohol. After the revolution, this innovation was extended, and it extended to the newly independent Finland, where the distribution of everything that contained at least 2% alcohol was strictly punished.


However, the Finns refused to stop drinking. Millions of tons of smuggled alcohol were confiscated every year. By 1920, most of the crimes in the country were in violation of Prohibition. In the end, a referendum was organized, and the majority of the people voted to lift the restriction.

Since then, when the law was abolished, a popular mystery has appeared in Finland, with the help of which many “experienced” have won bets in bars more than once. Can you guess what the sequence of numbers "5-4-3-2-1-0" means? We will post the correct answer below.
