If you opt to play Netherlands Lotto then it is scarcely believable how far the origins of this game can be traced back. Incredibly Dutch parliament sanctioned the earliest version of this game way back in 1726! Unsurprisingly such a long history makes this draw exceedingly popular. When you play Netherlands Lotto your first task is to select 6 numbers between 1 and 45, yet it’s the next part where many seasoned lottery players think the fun begins. A bonus ball drum is a common sight in lotteries, and there is a bonus draw here too, however rather than a number it’s a colour you must pick if you decide to play Netherlands Lotto. The players options are red, orange, yellow, green, blue or purple, with 6 balls of each colour going into the second drum but only one being drawn. The jackpots in this draw are sizeable too with the bare minimum being 7.5 million Euros and the all time record being a staggering 36 million Euros. If you play Netherlands Lotto and want to land those fantastic amounts you will predictably need to land all 6 numbers from the first drum and the coloured ball from the second.
