The National Lottery Authority (NLA) says its official short code *890# remains the safest and the legal platform for the NLA 5/90 and VAG Lotto Games via MTN, Vodafone and AirtelTigo during the lockdown period.

“Support government and the National Lottery Authority by playing responsibly… The *890# is the only platform with multiple games of NLA 5/90 and VAG Lotto,” the Authority said in a press release.

The NLA says within a few days of the implementation of the NLA Official Short Code *890#, the access rate has been phenomenal.

“A lot of players have won with instant prizes through their respective Mobile Money Accounts. The robustness and transparency of the *890# Official Short Code is matchless,” the NLA touted.

The National Lottery Authority also urged the staking public and its lotto marketing companies to continue to play their favourites responsibly.

“Stay Home and Make Money via Official Short Code of National Lottery Authority(NLA) *890#,” the NLA urged.
