About La Française des Jeux

Company Description

The National Lottery was founded in 1933 for the purpose of aiding World War I veterans wounded in combat. With one portion of stakes reverting to prizewinners, and the other to a support fund for veterans wounded in combat. This story is still being written today with UFBT (Union supporting veterans with facial and head injuries) and Fédération Maginot, which own a 15% stake in La Française des Jeux.

FDJ is a company with a unique history, centring its business model on ethics and responsibility. The Group defined its "raison d'être" (end purpose) in 2020. Incorporated in its by-laws, this end purpose is embodied by six commitments that structure the company’s initiatives.
