The National Lottery Authority has warned the general public against lotto fraudsters using various platforms and communication strategies to dupe unsuspecting Ghanaians.
According to the Director-General of the Authority, Sammi Awuku, the lotto fraudsters have defrauded a lot of Ghanaians through radio and television programs.
“We at the NLA do not conjure figures and have never conjure figures and anybody who sits on radio or TV be it religious person or communicator cannot give you the numbers for the day.”
Sammi Awuku emphasized that "the numbers are drawn live and is simply a game of chance and so anybody who went on the fact that the person can give you a chance to win is not true; it's simply a game of chance.”
The Authority advised Ghanaians to be careful in dealing with such lotto operators.
He made these comments when a delegation from the Nigeria License Lottery Operators paid courtesy call on him at the NLA office in Accra on Thursday, 2nd September.
The Authority took the Nigeria delegation through Ghana’s lottery system.
“You had a good experience witnessing our draws yesterday and how it is done; it is clear that the system is not fake; that if somebody tells you that these numbers are on social media, just know that it is not true".
