At the eLottery Nigeria, we are committed to empowering our players with the tools they need to protect themselves.
Our online players are offered a wide range of up to date responsible play options. We have integrated play detection functionality across the Lottery app and eLottery.ng. This software can detect patterns of the early signs of problem play behaviour. When triggered, users receive on screen messaging with helpful information on normal patterns of play, time logged-in and how to play responsibly. We monitor onsite activities and engage with players if necessary.
Spending Limit-Mandatory limits could be applied by the players to their online account. This could be subjected to daily, weekly and monthly maximum spending limits. Meanwhile, the player must remember that maximum limits are not targets. To change the spending limits, user need to login into their accounts and select ‘Spending limits from their dashboard. A decrease in spend limits will take effect immediately, while an increase in spend limits will require a 24hrs waiting period before it’s activated. While logged into the account, the user can access these controls or by visiting the My Wallet area in the My Account section of eLottery.ng.
