The National Lottery Authority (NLA) has announced it intended plans to revoke the licenses of Private Lotto Operators who have not yet regularised their operations for the 2023 Licensing Year.

In a statement released by the Authority, cautioned that Private Lottery Operators who still need to regularize their operations have up to Monday, January 23, 2023, to do so or face severe sanctions.

“NLA will revoke the licenses of operators who have failed, refused, or neglected to regularize their registration and pay the required licensing fees by 23rd January 2023.

“NLA, in collaboration with the security agencies, NLA will undertake exercises to clamp down on all unlicensed and/or illegal lotto and/or lottery operators,” parts of the statement said.

It explained that the exercise forms part of the routine for the 2023 Licensing Year in accordance with the provisions of the National Lotto Act, 2006 (Act 722).

The NLA has also advised the public to deal with only authorized entities as the Authority will not be liable for any losses or damages incurred from transactions with other parties.

NLA, in the statement, also informs Private Lotto Operators that its Lotto Commission, approved by its Governing Board and payable to agents, is still 20% until otherwise communicated.

Below is the complete statement published by the Authority.
