The Nigerian Professional Football League’s (NPFL) exciting new lotto, AfroMillionslotto, has gone live on Thursday, October 12, signaling the launch of a whole new equity system for football fans, gamers and the members of the public, Sportstalkafrica.com reports.
A statement by the League Management Company (LMC) said the launch now allows people to buy their online tickets for the first big jackpot draw which will take place on Wednesday 18th October.
Starting at N1 billion, the www.afromillionslotto.com twice-weekly draw is said to feature bigger jackpots than all the lotteries in Nigeria combined.
“It will also be the largest jackpot on offer anywhere in Africa. And if the jackpot rolls over because there are no winners, it increases by N100 million with each draw until it reaches a maximum of over N2 billion,” the organisers revealed.
“Winners of the jackpot could afford one of the most expensive homes on sale in Nigeria, the wedding of their dreams, a chrome-plated Ferrari and still have money left over!
“Another huge benefit of buying ticket on-line with AfroMillionsLotto is the fact you’ll receive an alert via email if you’ve won. Millions of cash prizes go unclaimed every year as people forget to check whether they have a winning ticket.”
The website also offers nine, ‘Candy Crush’ style, Instant Win games, which can be played for fun or to win cash prizes of up to N12 million!
Each NPFL club will have their own lotto website so football fans can support their favourite team. Every time someone buys a ticket or pays to play, that club will receive a percentage of the revenue to help fund player development, contribute to stadium and pitch improvements as well as support community-based projects.
Subscribers don’t have to be a football fan to play as anyone is welcome to join in and have the chance to win a life-changing prize.
However, the only way to play is via one of the official sites listed on the AfroMillionsLotto website.
Ofertas365 Limited is the company behind AfroMillionsLotto and aims to help sports clubs and charities in emerging markets raise money through lotto and Instant Win games.
