Afro hip hop artiste, Omoniyi Temidayo aka Zlatan on Tuesday led dignitaries to the launch of Lotto9ja – an instant online gaming platform. The event, which was held at the Victoria Island, Lagos headquarters of Lotto9ja, had in attendance the Director-General of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), Mr. Lanre Gbajabiamila and other top officials of the commission.
Gbajabiamila, who was represented by the Deputy Director, National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), Lagos, Mrs Priscilla Onuzulu, said the Commission gave the approval for Lotto9ja because it has met all the regulatory requirements.
He, therefore, wished Lotto9ja well in its operations. Zlatan, who is the brand ambassador of Lotto9ja, said he was very proud to be identified with the brand because of the opportunity it offers young people to better their lives.
In his remarks, the General Manager of Lotto9ja, Mr. Mitchell Okorie, described Lotto9ja as a lottery brand that offers privacy and convenience “at home, at work, on the road and practically everywhere and anywhere through various mobile devices”.
Okorie added, “Our platform, www.lotto9ja.com.ng, offers premium gaming services to Nigeria’s growing online population. As at December 2019, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) said there are 126 million internet users in Nigeria. That is about 61.2% of Nigeria’s over 200 million population. Lotto9ja seeks to leverage on this growing but largely mobile population in Nigeria. We know that the average Nigerian is true to the Nigerian spirit – that is the spirit of 9ja.
“The millennials who constitute a huge percentage of the internet users are always on the go and on their mobile devices. As they explore the boundless opportunities that technology offers, they want convenience and privacy. They want rapid and exciting games that resonate with what their personality and deliver instant results. They want games they can call their own and bond with.”
On the games, Okorie said, “Our array of instant games are in three major categories, namely LottoRace, Instant Lottery and Raffles. In essence, there is something for those who want instant gratification. And there is also something for the VIPs who play big! Whatever is your inclination and status, Lotto9ja caters for you.
Above all, the prize is guaranteed; winnings and quick payment of winnings will be the hallmark of experiences at lotto9ja.com.ng.” He expressed gratitude to the NLRC for approving the various instant online games.
“That is what has brought us here today for the official launch of Lotto9ja’s array of instant lottery games. It is our hope that this partnership will positively impact on respective bottom line and remittances to the NLRC and National Lottery Trust Fund,” Okorie added.
