Ghana Lotto - general information

Ghana Lotto started its activity in 1958 with the main goal of offering Ghanaians modern entertainment in which players will be able to win attractive cash prizes. An additional motivating factor for the creation of a national lottery was the desire to create jobs for at least several hundred Ghanaians and supporting the state treasury through taxes and other fees related to national lotteries. The National Lottery Authority has been responsible for Ghana Lotto since 2006.

The first draw for the most famous Ghana Lotto 5/90 was held on September 29, 1962. Initially, lotto tickets were filled by hand by the seller at a ground-based lottery point and sent to the lottery office. As the popularity of the Ghanaian lottery grew, there was a technological development in lotto games, which led to the manual system being replaced by an automatic system using modern lotto terminals. Currently, Ghana Lotto tickets are printed through the terminal that also offers a completely random selection of lucky numbers feature.

There are 15 National Lottery Authority offices in Ghana - 10 regional and 5 district offices. You can find their exact addresses on the official Ghana Lotto website.

All games available in the Ghana Lotto offer are based on the classic lotto 5/90, which means that 5 lucky numbers are selected during the draw. The organizer of the Ghanaian National Lottery has prepared game proposals for each day of the week. The games currently available are Monday Special, Lucky Tuesday, Midweek lotto, Fortune Thursday, Friday Bonanza, and National Weekly.

The player's task in Ghana Lotto 5/90 is to choose at least one and a maximum of 5 numbers from 1 to 90.

All games offered by Ghana Lotto are only available to players who are 18 or older.

Ghana Lotto draws are held daily at 6:30 PM at the Brennan Hall of NLA. Lottery results can be checked on the official website nla.com.gh, at local offices, and at numerous unofficial websites that are dedicated to lotto results.

More information about Ghana's national lotteries can be found on the official website, and in case of additional questions, you can contact the support team.

Ghana Lotto in Nigeria

Ghana Lotto has gained popularity in Nigeria many years ago. Since then, numerous Nigerian websites offering online lotto games have devoted a lot of space to the Ghana Lotto. Website customers could pick lucky numbers and place bets on Ghana Lotto 5/90 and games such as Monday Special, National Weekly Lotto, or Friday Bonanza. Unfortunately, none of the more than 20 Nigerian companies had permission from the Ghana Lotto owner to sell Ghanaian lottery bets. Neither company shared the profit from the sale of Ghana games bets with the owner of Ghana national lotteries. In this way, not only was the lottery organizer in Ghana losing, but also the government of the country, which did not receive tax revenues from national lotteries.

The case went to court, mainly on the initiative of Western Lotto Nigeria Limited in cooperation with the National Lottery Authority Ghana. At the beginning of 2020, a judgment was passed which ordered that Western Lotto is the only company in Nigeria that can sell bets on Ghana Lotto and Ghana games. The company operates based on an official partnership with the Ghanaian owner of national lotteries and shares the profit from the sale of bets. Other companies, including Premier Lotto or Gab Lotto Limited, Golden Chance Lotto had to pay very large fines and cannot offer Ghanaian lotteries.
