National Lottery Regulatory Commission Disavows Publication on Delisted Gaming Companies

The National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) has distanced itself from a publication circulating on various media platforms. This publication was purportedly issued by the Lagos State Lotteries and Gaming Authority, bearing the title “Public Notice on Unlicensed Gaming Companies in Lagos State.”

In a statement released by the NLRC, it was revealed that this publication had caused significant confusion within the Nigerian gaming industry. The Commission has been inundated with inquiries regarding the status of operators labeled as “unlicensed and illegal.”

The NLRC, as the legally mandated agency responsible for regulating Lottery and Gaming activities in Nigeria, deemed it necessary to provide clarity on the matter. The statement clarified that the gaming operators listed as “unlicensed and illegal” in the publication are, in fact, duly licensed to conduct lottery and sports betting business in Nigeria.

The operators include Zebet, Betika, Gobet, Msport, Afribet, Bangbet, Betwazobia, Koretbet, Paripesa, and Livescorebet. Additionally, Blackbet/Betty Bingo, Cloudbet, Hallabet, N1bet, Konfambet, Scratch2win, Naijabet, Lottomania, and Millionaire Powerplay are also among the licensed operators.

The NLRC emphasized that the comprehensive list of nationally recognized gaming operators in Nigeria is accessible on the NLRC website. The Commission expressed deep regret for any misconceptions that may have arisen due to the unfortunate publication and reaffirmed its commitment to supporting national gaming licensees who operate within the legal framework in Nigeria.
