Unlike sports betting where participants predict results and placing a wager on the outcome, a lottery is one in which participants draw up numbers at random for a prize.
The Sports betting company will run both activities simultaneously and banking on its customers’ base and technology to outsmart the other players in the lotto business. By this, Bet9ja will play in the lottery market with the likes of Baba Ijebu (Premier-Lotto), Lotto Nigeria, Western Lotto and others.
“It is more like an expansion away from the sports betting activity which is more complex to some people,” the source told BISSA.
Business Insider SSA understands that the company is planning to break technological barriers into all entries in the lottery business. For instance, if you buy something at the market place and you have a little balance of N100. Instead of doing away with it, you can easily use it to place a game.
