The National Lotteries Commission (NLC) was set up in terms of the Lotteries Amendment Act (No 32 of 2013) and has over the years made recommendations for several amendments to the Act and for the development of regulations on the conduct of the National Lottery and other lottery-type competitions.
REGULATING THE NATIONAL LOTTERY
The National Lottery is run by an independent company in terms of a licence awarded by the Minister of Trade and Industry for a period of five years, with a possible extension bringing the total period to a maximum of eight years. The NLC’s job is to ensure that the Lottery operator works strictly within the law and in a manner that is honest and efficient, yields good returns, and is fair to everyone involved.
FUNDING GOOD CAUSES
The most widely known role of the National Lotteries Commission (NLC) is its funding of non-profit organisations that play a role in the development of our society – through sport and recreation activities, through initiatives in the areas of arts, culture, national heritage and conservation, and through social services – including community health and literacy projects..
REGULATING LOTTERIES AND SPORTS POOLS
The National Lotteries Commission (NLC) monitors and regulates the running of various lottery competitions, including those organised by non-profit organisations to raise funds and by companies to promote their goods and services.
