Lottery Netherlands Nederlandse Loterij

Nederlandse Loterij

Netherlands Lottery games originally go back as far in time as 1726 when the Generality Lottery was launched to generate profits and realise funding for the Dutch government.

The Dutch National Lottery Staatsloterij as we know it today – came into being in 1848 when the Generaliteitsloterij (Generality Lottery) was renamed & the Nederlandse Staatsloterij was born.

The Netherlands Lotto – Lotto NLcan trace its origins back as far as 1961 when the Dutch government authorised the formation of Stichting de Nationale Sporttotalisator (SNS) having previously been involved with the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) with the National Toto betting on Football games since 1957.

Stichting de Nationale Sporttotalisator (SNS) applied to the Dutch government to run Netherlands Lottery games in 1971 and this application was accepted in 1974 when the original Netherlands Lotto Nederlandse Loterij was introduced by the government.

An independent company was formed to take over the running of the Nederlandse Staatsloterij from the government in 1992 and so Stichting Exploitatie Nederlandse Staatsloterij was created.

From 1993 a daily Netherlands Lotto called Lucky 10 was also part of the Loterij Nederlandse portfolio until the year 2000 when it was rebranded as Lucky Day, the game is still going strong today.

May 1994 saw the launch of the first Netherlands Lottery scratch cards – or Krasloten by the National Instant Lottery (NIL) which had now been approved & authorised by the Dutch government.

A huge addition to the Lotto NL range of games occurred in March 2012 when the EuroJackpot pan-european lottery was introduced across Europe by the Netherlands, alongside Denmark, Germany, Italy, Finland, plus Estonia and Slovenia as the founder members.

Today the Lotto NL – Netherlands Lotto – is run and organised by the Nederlandse Loterij, which was formed following the merger in April 2016 of the 2 primary Lottery Netherlands organisations of Stichting de Nationale Sporttotalisator & Nederlandse Staatsloterij.

Dutch Lottery games offered by the Nederlandseloterij include EuroJackpot, Lucky Day, Miljoenenspel, Toto & Scratch Cards (Krasloten) plus the main NL Lotto that we shall be looking at here from Loterij Nederlandse – the Lotto NL Netherlands Lotto

Lotto NL Netherlands Lotto Overview

Lotto NL

The Lotto NL Netherlands Lotto was first introduced by Stichting de Nationale Sporttotalisator back on September 1st 1974 & is the most popular in-house game in the range offered by the Netherlands Lottery.

The Lotto Netherlands is a standard lottery jackpot game similar to many world lotteries with a rising jackpot and special drawings.

Draws for the Lotto NL take place once every week from the HQ of the Nederlandse Loterij in Rijswijk on Saturday evenings at 9pm.

The minimum jackpot that you can win on the Netherlands Lotto is the exciting amount of € 2.5 MILLION and from this starting point the top prize can rollover to some pretty huge figures.

For each draw of the Lotto NL where the jackpot is not won it will increase in size every time by a further € 200,000,000 until a jackpot winner is finally produced and there is no jackpot limit!
