The National Lottery Authority (NLA) has received praise from the World Lottery Association (WLA) for its contributions to youth development, sports, and education.

This was announced to journalists in Accra by the president of the WLA as part of the NLA’s 60th anniversary celebration and gaming conference.

The Africa Lottery Association (ALA), of which Ghana is a member, is holding a three-day seminar on responsible gaming at the NLA with the participation of over 15 other African nations.

About 15 Director Generals from 15 African Lottery Bodies will attend the seminar to discuss various topics, policies, and frameworks related to the lottery sector.

A grand durbar featuring Ghana’s President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, ministers of state, and some members of parliament will serve as the event’s high point.

Rebecca Paul, President of the WLA, praises the NLA for its 60 years of service to the country and claims that the event will help to improve the gaming sector while speaking with journalists at the event.

Excitedly stating that Ghana was chosen to host the conference, NLA Director General Sammy Awuku explained that the decision shows how influential the NLA has been in societal progress.

Regarding safe gaming in Ghana, Mr. Awuku stated that there have been advertisements, age verification is done before gaming, and there have been warnings against lottery addiction.
