The Limpopo Gambling Board in South Africa has seized and destroyed 100 illegal gambling machines from local shops.

Chairman of the board Elijah Tjiane said: “The serious crimes we’re witnessing in the country start with illegal machines operating in local shops. They then go to drugs and later graduate to other heavy crimes.”

Tjiane said the R500 fine illegal gambling operaters got was too little.

“We wish lawmakers could come up with a fine that will fit the crime the person has committed.”

Limpopo Economic Development MEC Seaparo Sekoati said illegal gambling was crippling businesses which operated by the book.

He said destroying the illegal machines would assist in reducing crime in the province.

“The work done by the board’s law enforcement unit, working closely with police in tackling illegal and harmful economic activities, is outstanding. Our law enforcement officers confiscated 101 gambling machines which were collected from various spaza shops in and around our communities.

“Illegal gambling outlets have a negative impact on our economy.

“Such unregistered and underground operations do not adhere to the tax legislation of the country,” said Sekoati.

Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Quanta has signed contracts to acquire a stake in International Lottery and Gaming Limited (ILGL), and concluded the world’s first deal to see a blockchain company acquire a traditional lottery company.

The acquisition will usher in an era where innovation sits alongside tradition, injecting the power of blockchain technology into the lottery business. Quanta sees this ambitious move as an opportunity to reinforce and extend its efforts to promote blockchain starting with Nigeria where ILGL is rooted, and very soon afterwards expand to other countries in Africa.

ILGL, trade-named NaijaLottery™ has been granted a Grade A National License from the National Lottery Regulatory Commission to offer lottery games throughout the country. This deal will see Quanta and ILGL combining their forces and introducing the application of blockchain technology to revitalize traditional lottery and to act as a platform for growth in Africa.

“Now is the time to build on the momentum of the traditional Nigerian lottery market. Together, we will continue to build a safe and trusted platform that ensures fairness and transparency, while offering amazing functionality to players and helping to boost the local economy.

“We believe we are carving out a bright future for the players and to the industry as a whole.” said Kostas Farris, Group CTO of Quanta.

“This is a profound opportunity to bolster the rapidly-evolving lottery business. We are confident that we can make blockchain lottery popular and this acquisition represents a significant base for Quanta to target other emerging markets centered in Africa.

“We aim to build up a blockchain-based ecosystem that will serve the gaming industry whilst stimulating the growth of the local economy through generating new businesses and employment opportunities.” Kostas added.

Commenting on behalf of ILGL, Charbel Saadeh, Managing Director of Naija Lottery said, “ILGL has provided popular and entertaining games to the Nigerian players; it is highly respected in the gaming industry and we are very excited to collaborate with Quanta. The acquisition is a historic announcement. This is a combination of expertise—the integration of blockchain lottery with local operation, to create an even more compelling experience to optimize lottery playing for the 200-million Nigerian market.”

NaijaLottery™ launched operations on 7 March, 2016 by offering the popular 5 out of 90 game as well as the highly exciting instant game 1 of 36, both games aim to offer fun and excitement to all its Nigerian players. Quanta witnessed ILGL’s highly established position in the Nigerian lottery market, and is looking to progressively build a platform fully enhanced with advanced technology to accelerate market access with the joint efforts of Quanta and ILGL, paving the next step in the company’s evolution to unleash the great potentials of the blockchain technology.

The Nigeria lottery industry has undergone strong growth in recent years and is considered as one of the most lucrative business opportunities in the world. It is a major source of wealth distribution in the country, while the role of cryptocurrencies continues to garner national-level attention.
