The National Lottery Authority (NLA) has announced the completion of what it calls “the Pre-Qualification Phase” for licensing of all operators of private lotto (OPL) for the 2021/2022 licensing year.
A statement signed by the NLA Public Affairs Department said that “subsequently, all OPls who submitted their duly completed Pre-Qualification Forms to NLA are hereby requested to contact the Operations Office at the NLA Head Office, Fortune House First Floor, Accra, for Licensing Application Forms and Payment Terms.”
The statement said “the deadline for submission of duly completed Licensing Application Forms and for making payments is October 29, 2021. Licensing of OPLs for the 2021/2022 licensing year will commence on November 1, 2021.”
It said also that “the NLA would like to encourage OPLs to take steps to regularise their operations. Effective 1st November 2021, NLA, in collaboration with the security services, will clamp down on all unlicensed lottery operators to sanitise the lotto industry.”
