The Ghanaian National Lottery Authority (NLA) has prevailed in its quest to host the African Lottery Association’s (ALA) Seminar on Responsible Gaming in December.

As reported by Ghanaian outlet MyJoyOnline, Sammi Awuku –  Director General of the NLA – revealed the news following his return from last month’s African Grand Horse Racing Competition in Marrakech, Morocco.

The event saw the NLA seek assistance from members of the ALA in an attempt to increase its revenue streams.

December’s AFA seminar is set to be the first time Ghana has hosted it in its history, an event which coincides with the NLA’s 60th anniversary celebrations.

“The NLA team took the opportunity to engage stakeholders from the Morocco lottery industry and other lottery heads present at the seminar on possible areas of collaboration, particularly how NLA can export the 5-90 game to other countries, for us to increase our revenue base,” Awuku said.

Awuku also noted that talks are taking place with Driss Belghazi, Director General of the Société royale d’encouragement du cheval (SOREC), as well as Younes El Mechrafi, Secretary General for ALA and CEO of La Marocaine des Jeux et des Sports.

Meanwhile, the NLA  is set to begin the process to improve its certification from Level 1 to Level 3 by the end of the year.
