The National Lottery Authority (NLA) is the designated body that oversees the regulation of all lotteries in the country and is the only body tasked with organising raffles for the public.
The NLA has been operating since 1958 but the Lotto and Betting Act 94 was officially passed into law to start a lottery in Ghana in 1960. Lottery has since become key to revenue generation by the government, with the NLA gaining autonomy following the passing of an Act of parliament, the National Lotto Act 722, in 2006.
Currently, there are many lotteries that take place in Ghana on a daily basis, some of which are legit and others illegal.
This article is aimed at revealing the legitimate lotteries in Ghana, as well as how and when they take place.
