Norsk Postkodelotteri

The Norwegian lottery market was re-regulated in 2015 and five licences were made available for charity lotteries. This made it possible for the Norsk Postkodelotteri (Norwegian Postcode Lottery) to enter the market. The licences are valid for nine years and one of them is held by SOS-barnebyer and WWF Norway. This gives them the right to market Postcode Lottery in Norway.

The licence comes with very clear demands regarding turn-over and marketing; the turnover is limited to MNOK 300 on a yearly basis and the marketing investments are limited to 15 percent of the turnover after paid out prizes. Only 125 000 subscriptions to the Lottery are available.

Novamedia Norsk Postkodelotteri AS operates the Norwegian Postcode Lottery on the basis of a contract concluded with WWF Norge and SOS-barnebyer.

A lottery ticket costs 200 NOK per month, which is approximately 20 euros.
