The first jackpot draw takes place on 18 October

Online tickets are now available for the first AfroMillionsLotto draw, with 20% of gross revenues generated through its website going to the development of football in Nigeria.

Starting with an N1 billion draw on 18 October, the twice-weekly draw, launched by Ofertas365 and the League Management Company (LMC) for Nigerian football clubs this summer, features bigger jackpots than all other lotteries in Nigeria combined.

Each Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) club will have its own lotto website, which means that each time one of their fans buys a ticket, that club will receive 20% of the revenue to help fund player development and community-based projects, along with stadium and pitch improvements.

James Leppard, CEO of Ofertas365, told TotallyGaming.com: “The NPFL clubs receive 20% of the gross revenues generated through their own AfroMillionsLotto website.

“It gives them a major incentive to promote the lotto to their fans and it also gives the fans a tangible way to support their club. Many of the clubs are also looking at community outreach programmes and other ways to develop football at grass roots level.”

The club websites, available from https://www.afromillionslotto.com/, also offer ‘Candy Crush’ style Instant Win games, which can be played either for fun or for cash prizes up to N12 million.

Leppard continued: “The range of fun-to-play, Instant Win Games give players another opportunity to win life-changing prizes - some of our games offer winnings equal to the biggest lotto jackpots in Africa. It’s also a great way to keep players involved in between the twice-weekly jackpots.”

Totally Gaming says: The first AfroMillionsLotto draw represents a breakthrough lottery moment in Africa. Starting at N1 billion, the jackpot will increase by N100 million each time up to a maximum of over N2 billion. Ofertas365 has also confirmed that online players will receive an email alert if they’re successful, reducing the number of prizes that go unclaimed.
