Online lottery group Lottoland has announced that they've begun operations in South Africa after they obtained two licenses by regulators.
The licenses will allow the group to offer their fixed odds products to players while using their own software. The group offers punters the chance to play more than 30 different lotteries from around the world, including the huge American games Powerball and Mega Millions. The company has insurance policies to cover the different games, and will pay out the funds for the huge jackpots that can be won.
Commenting on the launch Lottoland CEO Nigel Birrell said, "We are pleased to have been granted these licences in South Africa. Lottoland now hold twelve regulated licenses around the world - a great achievement for us and testament to us as a global brand and company.
"We strongly believe that Lottoland is uniquely placed in the South African market to be able to offer our portfolio of fixed odds lottery products and insurance related services giving South Africans the opportunity to win some of the largest jackpots in the world."
