Gbajabiamila who was represented by the Deputy Director of the commission, Mrs Priscilla Onuzulu, said the commission gave the approval for Lotto9ja to operate because it has met all the regulatory requirements.
He said, “We gave approval to Lotto9ja to commence business because its promoters had met the necessary requirements.”

Afro hip hop artiste, Omoniyi Temidayo (Zlatan) who is the brand ambassador of Lotto9ja, said he was very proud to be identified with the brand because of the opportunity it offered young people to better their lives.
The General Manager of Lotto9ja, Mr. Mitchell Okorie, described it as a lottery brand that offered privacy and convenience “at home, at work, on the road and practically everywhere and anywhere through various mobile devices.”
Okorie added, “Our platform, www.lotto9ja.com.ng, offers premium gaming services to Nigeria’s growing online population.”
He added that as at December 2019, the Nigerian Communications Commission said there were 126 million Internet users in Nigeria.
He said, “That is about 61.2 per cent of Nigeria’s over 200 million population. Lotto9ja seeks to leverage on this growing but largely mobile population in Nigeria. We know that the average Nigerian is true to the Nigerian spirit – that is the spirit of 9ja.
“The millennials who constitute a huge percentage of the Internet users are always on the go and on their mobile devices. As they explore the boundless opportunities that technology offers, they want convenience and privacy.
“They want rapid and exciting games that resonate with what their personality and deliver instant results. They want games they can call their own and bond with.”
On the games, Okorie said, “Our array of instant games are in three major categories, namely LottoRace, Instant Lottery and Raffles.”
He said it guaranteed instant payment, and it had something for all classes, including the high class.
