The National Lottery Authority (NLA) will in the coming days 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, it cautioned that Private Lottery Operators who still need to regularize their operations have up to January 23, 2023, to do so or face severe sanctions.
“NLA will revoke the licenses of operators who have failed, refused, or neglected to regularise their registration and pay the required licensing fees by January 23, 2023. Furthermore, in collaboration with the security agencies, NLA will undertake exercises to clamp down on all unlicensed and/or illegal lotto and/or lottery operators. All illegal operators arrested during these exercises will be made to face the full rigors of the law.”
NLA has also published the list of entities the authority has entered into third-party collaborations with and has advised the public to deal with only the entities listed, as the authority will not be liable for any losses or damages incurred from transactions with other parties.
NLA, in the statement, also informed the Private Lotto Operators that its Lotto Commission, approved by its Governing Board and payable to agents, is still 20% until otherwise communicated.
NLA has also notified the relevant regulatory bodies to take action.
