New Year wins: Big lottery tickets fall in Amersfoort and Heemskerk


This year’s postcode lottery prize of €58.9 million has been won by households in the centre of Heemskerk, including two men who were both widowed in 2022, RTL Nieuws said on Monday.

Cees, 76, and Leo, 86, are friends and neighbours and were married for 51 and 63 years. They win €2.8 million and €2.6 million respectively.

Half the big prize goes to people living in winning postcode area 1961GB and the rest will be divided between people living in the 1961 zone. They will find out on Friday how much each will receive.

The winning Staatsloterij ticket, for €30 million, was sold in Amersfoort.
