Should you elect to play Netherlands Lotto your opening decision is which 6 numbers from a guess range of 1 to 45 you should select. Many players do this at random whilst others use significant dates relevant to them. The second decision and the one that separates this draw from so many others is that players must select a colour! That’s correct, if you play Netherlands Lotto the second draw is full of 36 coloured balls of which only 1 will be drawn. You will need to select the colour drawn if you are to land the often sizeable jackpots this game carries. Red, blue, yellow green, orange and purple are your options (6 of each colour in the drum) if you decide to play Netherlands Lotto. Given the flamboyant nature of this draw it’s no surprise half the entire Dutch population enter, and with jackpots having reached upwards of 30 million Euros nobody can blame them! Remarkably the first origins of a lottery game in the Netherlands can be traced back to 1726, so this draw is rightly entrenched in lottery history. If you elect to play Netherlands Lotto then you should be made aware it is a once weekly draw, with Saturday 8pm CET the normal start the drum time.
