Lotto operators unhappy with 10% deduction on commissions
The Ghana Lotto Operators Association (GLOA), Private Lotto Operators (PLO), and the Concerned Lotto Agents Association of Ghana (CLAAG) have expressed worry about the reduction of commission for lotto writers from 30% to 20% and have described the deduction of 10% as an acceptable by the National Lottery Authority directive.
According to the respective bodies, the move has resulted in tension between Lotto Writers and the various Agents who have vowed not to allow the directive to work.
The groups have vehemently stated that they will embark on a nationwide demonstration until such a time the National Lottery Authority rescinds the directive.

The group in this regard have revealed that they had a series of engagement with the Governing Board of NLA about the 10% reduction but the various members did not take kindly to the directive since it will be accompanied by stiff resistance.
“Players in the Lotto value chain have always opposed the directive at several meetings compelling the NLA to initiate steps to revoke licenses of PLOs that do not comply with the directive,” the group stated, indicating further that the move is a ploy to run down the operations of the lotto writers.
“Our licences are due for renewal therefore the NLA wants to use non-compliance to refuse to issue new licences”, the group revealed.
“The current economic hardship in the country has impacted negatively on the citizenry and their various working conditions”, the group stated, pointing out that issues pertaining to the reduction of commission be given a second thought for an amicable solution.
