Just like the state lottery, the Postcode Lottery is one of the largest and best-known lotteries in the Netherlands. The Postcode lottery distinguishes itself from all other lotteries by not playing via a random lottery number, but with a postcode. Most people play in the Postcode lottery through their own postcode. This is not mandatory, so you can also choose any combination of zip codes or multiple zip codes.
History of the Postcode lottery
Where the state lottery has a long history, the Postcode lottery is still quite young. It was founded in 1989 by Boudewijn Poelmann, Simon Jelsma, Frank Leeman and Herman de Jong. They all wanted to contribute to a cleaner and above all just world. Since the lottery was founded, they have already paid out more than 3.5 billion euros to charities.

The Postcode lottery is part of the National Holding Charity Lotteries. This means that they distribute as much as 50% of their income directly to the 85 different charities. About 35% of the revenues are distributed as prize money and the remaining 15% of the revenues are used to cover all costs.
The Postcode lottery is one of the largest charity lotteries in the Netherlands and contributes by supporting no fewer than 85 charity organizations in 2011. Until the end of 2011, they have paid a total of no less than 3.5 billion euros to the supporting charities.
