The National Lottery Authority (NLA) will revoke the licences of private lottery operators that have not yet regularised their activities for the 2023 licencing year in the coming days.
The Authority warned in a statement that Private Lottery Operators who have yet to regularise their operations have until January 23, 2023, to do so or face harsh consequences.
“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.”
The NLA has also published a list of entities with whom it has entered into third-party collaborations, and has recommended the public to deal only with those entities, since the authority will not be liable for any losses or damages experienced as a result of transactions with other parties.
The NLA also notified the Private Lotto Operators in the statement that its Lotto Commission, as agreed by its Governing Board and payable to agents, remains at 20% unless otherwise indicated.
The NLA has also notified the appropriate regulatory agencies that action will be taken.
