Betway announced their licence extension by the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) that is based in Abuja. This permits the world’s leading betting brand to offer its services in all of Nigeria’s states and local government areas for a further five years. In handing over the renewed licence to Betway, the Director General of the NLRC, Lanre Gbajabiamila, lauded the fact that the bookmaker consistently observed the applicable regulations in the gambling and betting sector over the past five years.
Moreover, he reported that it remains one of the betting sites in Nigeria that fully complies with the rules and regulations. Besides this praise, he encouraged the group’s managers and board to maintain this impeccable work in the future. Furthermore, he promised an improvement in the already cordial relationship between Betway and the regulator over this period.
The CEO of Betway, Anthony Werkman, commented, “We are honoured to serve our customers in Nigeria in accordance with our global policies. Here, we focus on the customer satisfaction as well as on the responsible gaming. Therefore, we would like to thank the National Lottery Regulatory Commission for granting us the extension of our Nigerian licence. Maintaining the regulatory compliance in all countries where Betway operates assumes a high priority for our company. Additionally, we feel that ensuring a fair, safe and responsible environment for our customers represents another keystone to our global growth.”
Betway commits generously to Nigerian communities
Chris Ubosi led Betway Nigeria’s team to the licence renewal. Thereafter, he added that the bookmaker distinguished itself for a long time thanks to its large involvement in various Nigerian communities, too. They include, for instance, the provision of humanitarian aid to flood victims in Bayelsa State and the donation of potable water in Lagos. Furthermore, they donated several million naira worth of sports equipment to gyms all over the country. Besides, a cooperation with the Lagos State Lotteries Boards (LSLB) enables the financing of medical services.
