Christmas Lottery Draws
The Christmas Lottery is an annual event, starting with its first draw in 2017. It was established to provide German lottery fans with another great game to enjoy over the festive period and gives away a large number of big prizes every year.
A licence was granted in 2016 for the Cologne-based Navidad Foundation to run the Christmas Lottery in Germany. As a non-profit organisation, the Navidad Foundation focuses on giving back as much money as it can in the form of prizes and charitable donations.
The lottery’s main purpose is to raise money from ticket sales to support good causes across several sectors. The Foundation will make donations to The German Children and Youth Foundation, a reading charity called Stiftung Lesen and the Lukas Podolski Foundation, which helps sport and education.
