About Novamedia

Novamedia/Postcode Lottery Group is a social enterprise that contributes to a fairer and greener world. It sets up and operates charity lotteries worldwide to raise funds for good causes.

In 1989, the Nationale Postcode Loterij started in the Netherlands, a lottery based on postcodes with a subscription-based model that guarantees sustainable fundraising for good causes. Postcode Lotteries have also been set up in Sweden, Great Britain, Germany and Norway.

In the Netherlands, the VriendedLoterij (Friends Lottery) supports the preservation of cultural heritage and human well-being through organisations that enrich lives.

The Postcode Lotteries are one of the safest games of chance globally. In 32 years, players of the Postcode Lotteries and VriendenLoterij have raised a total of 12 billion euros for more than 1,000 charities and social organisations worldwide.
