When it comes to millions

In 2021, our turnover was 2,993 million. Of this, 2,467 million in prize money was paid out and 188 million was donated to charities and Dutch sports. With such enormous amounts, you probably understand we must have our financial processes arranged at the highest level, to every digit after the decimal point.

Why we do this

Many people know our lottery is the largest, reliable provider of games of chance in the Netherlands. What not everyone knows is that we contribute financially to 18 charities and to Dutch sports. For example, all our profits are shared with TeamNL, KWF and our Orange Lionesses, among others. The Finance department contributes to this by protecting and further strengthening our earning capacity. The customer plays the leading role in this. To ensure that the customer receives the best service, we strive for an error-free financial organisation and operate within the frameworks given to us.

Who we do this with

Our 80 financial professionals deploy their talents within seven different teams: Fraud & Payments, Business Control, Game Management, Trading, Financial Accounting, Business Intelligence and Procurement & Facilities. Our love for sports connects us: we like that we all contribute to sports in the Netherlands.

Are we sporty ourselves? The international Fraud & Payments team members regularly attack the bouldering course. On Monday mornings, our colleagues from Financial Accounting discuss the matches played by Ajax, ADO Den Haag and Sparta. Several of our Finance colleagues can be found in our own gym after the working day. We also enjoy bowling together and we love fun team outings such as herding sheep in the context of working together. Inside and outside Nederlandse Loterij, we are described as transparent, reliable, team players and objective.
