"The Nederlandse StaatsLoterij from the Netherlands Lottery"
The Netherlands Lottery can trace its origins al the way back to 1726 when the Generaliteitsloterij (or Generality Lottery) was created to provide funds for the treasury of Holland.
Generaliteitsloterij was renamed as Nederlandse Staatsloterij in 1848 and so the Dutch National Lottery that we have today is now one of the oldest continuously operating lotteries across the world.
The Staatsloterij was run by the Dutch governmant right up until 1992 when an independent organisation was created to oversee operations – Stichting Exploitatie Nederlandse Staatsloterij.
The Staatsloterij today is run by the Nederlandse Loterij which was formed by the almalgamation of the 2 existing Dutch Lottery companies – Stichting Exploitatie Nederlandse Staatsloterij and Stichting de Nationale Sporttotalisator back on April 1st 2016.
The Dutch National Lottery is incredibly popular within the Netherlands with more than half the population regularly playing.
least 60% of all sales of the Staats Loterij go right back to its
customers in the form of lottery prize money and Staatsloterij NL have
in excess of 3,000 points of sale throughout the Netherlands where
you can buy lottery tickets for Netherlands Lottery games.
There are numerous lotto games that players are offered by the Nederlandse Loterij including the Lotto NL – Netherlands Lotto – EuroJackpot, Miljoenenspel, Lucky Day, Toto, Krasloten (scratch cards) plus the Staatsloterij which we shall look at now in detail...
The Nederlandse Staatsloterij is not a traditional draw type jackpot lottery as with most of the main world lotteries but is a sweepstake lottery raffle similar to El Gordo or Loteria Nacional of Spain.
The draw for the Staatloterij takes place 16 times per year on the 10th of each month between 6.30pm & 9.30pm CET plus there are 4 special Staats Loterij draws that occur on April 27th and December 31st.
additional draws made are known as the King's Draw – Staatsloterij Koningsdagtrekking – which is on April 27th plus the New Years Eve Drawing – Oudejaarstrekking – which takes place on December 31st to celebrate both the old year & the
new. Also there are the two Droomsalaristrekkingen – Dream Salary Draws – which take place each year on July 1st & October 1st.
The Nederlandse Staatsloterij offers players the biggest prize pool in Netherlands Lottery games – with more than € 400 MILLION in prize money available to be won throughout the calendar year!
The Staatsloterij jackpot begins at a cool € 7.5 MILLION and it can rollover onto the following draw up to more than € 25 MILLION.
Whether or not the Staatsloterij jackpot will rollover and rise in size for the next draw is determined by the drawing of 1 coloured ball from 7 coloured lotto balls – 1 orange and 6 blue. If a blue ball is drawn the jackpot will rollover & be even bigger next draw but if the orange ball is drawn, the jackpot must be won in this draw.
The Staatsloterij NL offers the best odds of winning out of all Netherlands Lottery games with an amazing 1 in 2 Dutch Lottery players who participate in all Staatsloterij draws winning a prize.
Playing with the additional Staatsloterij XL option will allow you to play with the same ticket number twice in the extra XL draw that is made where you can win even more prizes up to € 1 MILLION.
As we have already mentioned – the Staatsloterij is a sweepstake type of lottery & as such it uses lottery tickets each with a pre-printed lotto number.
Each of these lottery numbers is made up of 7 digits in total which are comprised of 2 LETTERS followed by 5 NUMBERS. This is your complete Staatsloterij ticket number.
You can buy lottery tickets for the Nederlandse Staats Loterij in WHOLE tickets or in PART tickets. A WHOLE ticket is called a Staatslot whilst a PART ticket is referred to as 1/5 Staatslot as the Staatslot is broken down into one fifths of the Staatslot itself.
Furthermore the Netherlands Lottery offers players the options of a Straatje – which is 10 x 1/5 Staatslot tickets and a Straat – which is 10 x WHOLE StaatsLot tickets. If you play with 10 tickets in this way, you will always have the final digits & are guaranteed to win!
If you want more tickets still, you can play the Boulevardje option which will give you 100 x 1/5 Staatslot PART tickets or even the Boulevard option where you get 100 x Staatslot WHOLE tickets. With both of these options you are also guaranteed to win a prize.
As mentioned above, an additional draw is also made which is called the Staatsloterij XL draw. You have the option to play the Staats Loterij & add the additional XL feature to allow you to win even more Staatsloterij prizes which can be up to € 1 MILLION.
The Staatsloterij XL number will also be 7 digits which are made up of 2 LETTERS plus 5 NUMBERS. The winning amounts when you play with XL are fixed and are additional to the main prizes.
The cost of playing is € 3.00 for a 1/5 Staatslot ticket + € 0.50 to add the XL option. A whole Staatslot ticket costs € 15.00 + € 2.50 to add the XL option. A Straatje costs € 30.00 + € 5.00 to add the XL option and a Straat will cost € 150.00 + € 25.00 to add the XL option. Finally the Boulevardje is € 300.00 + € 50.00 to add the XL option and the Boulevard is € 1,500.00 + € 250.00 to add the XL.
