An online lottery platform, Wulucky, has been introduced in the market, with the aim of improving the lottery industry in the country and creating jobs for all citizens.
An initiative of Wulucky Ghana Limited, and licensed by the Ghana National Lottery Authority, Wulucky is intended to help people play lotto online from the comfort of their homes to increase their financial fortunes.
Lottery winners instantly receive their money electronically and win a cash prize of 2 GH¢ for signing up on the platform and another 2 GH¢ for referring someone to the platform.
In remarks made on behalf of NLA Chief Executive, Mr. Sammy Awuku, by Director of Operations, Dr. George Eric Gyamfi-Osew, he said the NLA was established 60 years ago to generate revenue to promote national development.
Furthermore, he said that the ALN has a mandate to raise revenue to support the most deprived in society.
“That’s why the NLA has opened its doors to private operators and private partnerships to generate more revenue,” Awuku said.
The Managing Director encouraged Wlucky Ghana to generate more revenue to support its operations as well as the NLA.
MrAwuku urged the public to support the online lottery to enable the country to generate more revenue to facilitate national development.
He warned industry players to follow the rules, saying “the NLA will not support any illegality”.
Vintage Venture Limited CEO Kaye KwekuYeboah, who chaired the program, said the e-lottery was developed to deal with the stress people go through and the mistakes associated with business players.
“The growing popularity of the lottery game, increasing patronage and sometimes human error in writing numbers as well as selecting winners and paying out winnings, motivated us to begin development of a home mobile lotto to meet the needs of the digital age and compete globally,” he said.
MrYeboah pointed out that Wulucky Ghana Limited is employing highly skilled young graduates from universities across the country to build world-class lottery systems and to digitize lotto operations in Ghana.
He promised that Wlucky Ghana Limited would position itself as one of the leading licensed private lottery operators in the country.
The Managing Director of Wulucky Ghana Limited, Mr. Nana Kofi Adjei, said in his remarks that the new online lottery platform would allow people to play the lottery from the comfort of their homes.
He said the online lottery platform would help create jobs and give people the opportunity to earn money, adding that it would solve the problem where people who won the lotto lost their money because that the seller has fled.
Mr Adjei said Wlucky had strong security measures in place to protect gambling consumers and ensure their winnings were paid out promptly, stressing that “we will make sure to hire professionals who are experienced in the lottery industry “.
“We will ensure that we meet the highest standards by meeting our customers’ needs precisely and completely,” he said.
