The NLC regulates various lotteries including sports pools, society lotteries, raffles and competitions.

The National Lotteries Commission also serves as a Grant Funder, providing registered Non Profit Organisations with funding to establish projects that improve the lives of everyday South Africans.
Our grant funding focuses mainly in areas that require enough support to be able to bring growth and change within impoverished communities. The impact of our grant funding model, is designed in a ma nner that plays a pertinent role in changing peoples lives. We as a commission are guided by a strict mandate, that governs our operations and helms the model of our grant funding.
