Any company presently carrying out any form of Sports Lottery(Betting) activity in Nigeria is hereby invited to regularise its operations with the Commission in the interest of the growth of the lottery industry in Nigeria.
The Commission also invites all prospective Sports Lottery(Betting) Operators (SLOs) intending to carryout any form of Sports Lottery activity in Nigeria, to submit (through the nearest State Office in Nigeria or directly to her head office in FCT - Abuja) application(s) for the processing and issuance of a Sports Lottery Permit(SLP) which allows for the operation of the business of Sports Lottery on a national platform in Nigeria.
Furthermore, any company operating any form of Sports Lottery(Betting) in Nigeria without a SLP is doing so illegally and will be subject to such penalties as contained in the NLA 2005.
