Hundreds of people are expected to throng the forecourt of the Anlo District Assembly Office this weekend, to witness the National Lottery Authority’s (NLA) godmother moneymaking machine, in action.
The NLA Draw machine is making its next stop in the Volta Region in the third of the series of the NLA’s famous Community Draws, to spread some good fortune to celebrants of this year’s Hogbetsotsoza.
Amid heavy security of combined military and police personnel, the draw machines were crane lifted from their secure place, the Brennan Hall on Friday morning.
According to the Head of Corporate Affairs, Ms. Judith Kormle, the NLA Community Draws are the Authority’s way of bringing the draw closer to its cherished patrons and the general public, dispelling the myth and rumors that ordinarily typify the draw and the draw machines.
“Holding Community Draws also gives NLA the opportunity to educate our patrons and the general public on the integrity of the Draw Process, the mandate, and operations of the Authority.
We also use such platforms to enlighten our patrons on giving back to the community through our Good Causes and the activities of fraudsters who purport to give out leaked winning numbers on WhatsApp and Facebook.
Additionally, Community Draws add to the thrill of patrons who have never witnessed the draw to get a firsthand view of it, and also interact with the Draw presenters, Ace Actor Akrobeto, Comedian Kalybos, Actress, Jessica Williams, Beryl Adom and Nancy Darko.
This year’s draw will be even more exciting as musicians, Praye and other artists will entertain fans while they make money with their stakes.
This is the first time in sixty years, the National Lottery Authority (NLA) is taking its draw to the Volta Region in celebration of the Hogbetstso Festival and the third in the series of festivities, after Kwahu-Obomeng and the Oguaa Fetu Afahye.
Saturday 5th November 2022’s National Weekly Lotto, will also be live on United Television at 7:15 pm.
