Where did it all begin?
Our parent company Novamedia has been operating charity lotteries around the world since 1989. Their aim is to raise funds for deserving charities and widen awareness of the amazing work of these good causes. All of the Novamedia lotteries use the same simple recipe – players winning fantastic prizes while raising money for charity.
Novamedia currently runs seven charity lotteries:
- People's Postcode Lottery in Britain
- Nationale Postcode Loterij in the Netherlands
- Vrienden Loterij in the Netherlands
- BankGiro Loterij in the Netherlands
- Deutsche Postcode Lotterie in Germany
- Svenska Postkod Lotteriet in Sweden
- Norsk Postkode Lotteri in Norway
Novamedia and the Postcode Lotteries were ranked as the world's second biggest private charity donor in London business newspaper City A.M.'s World Charity Index. In 2018/19 the operation contributed over $880 Million to charitable projects around the world.
