It houses seven well-known gambling entities in the Netherlands including brands such as Staatsloterij, Lotto, Toto, Eurojackpot, Miljoenenspel, Lucky Day and Krasloten, and invests millions annually in Dutch sport and 18 charities in the area of ​​health and movement. 

Joost den Heijer, COO Nederlandse Loterij commented: “At every stage of our collaboration, NYX has lived up to its reputation as a world-leading gaming content and platform provider. Moving to its OPS and a single player database has been highly beneficial to Nederlandse Loterij and we look forward to many more years of success together.”
