Public On-Line Lottery as defined in the Lagos State Lotteries (Amendment) Law 2008 includes any lottery or other game of chance which includes lotteries played on-line, digital, electronics, telephone and other technology-based lotteries that are open to members of the public and is not restricted to membership of any society, religious group, association or social group.
The amendment of the Lagos State Lotteries Law in 2008 modified the way lottery was played in Lagos State. The use of manual coupons was replaced with technology driven terminals that are directly linked to the lottery operators’ and LSLB’s central servers. This provides real time information on the activities of the Lottery operators, their agents and sub agents.
This development also enables transparency and accountability in the lottery industry. LSLB is also able to resolve disputes arising between lottery operators, agents, and/or stakers.
Public online lottery licence is for a duration of 5 years and renewable at expiration.
