In the Nigerian gaming scene, it is a well known fact that the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) is the body charged with the regulation of all operation and business of lottery in Nigeria by the National Lottery Act, 2005 and thus they have the mandate to license all gaming operators in the country, in order for their business to be a legal operation within the nation.
There are various legalised lottery operators in the country, each providing similar services but with different mode of operation. However, scams are bound to occur especially with the popularity of online gaming both for local and international plays. There is need for players to stake/bet with registered and regularized operators so that they can have recourse to justice with NLRC, should there be a complaint or dispute especially as it on non payment of winnings.
