How To Use A Short Code In Ghana To Play NLA Games

The National Lottery Authority (NLA) is Ghana’s main regulatory agency for all lottery operators. Numerous businesses operate lottery programmes in Ghana, but the NLA Games is the biggest of them all.


Lotto, as it is commonly known in Ghana, has been around for a while. Even while most people believe it to be a “get rich quick” scheme.

They also believe it to be a game with any number of possible outcomes because money is involved.


Many people have been betting on the lottery for a very long time with the intention of winning the largest reward and then giving up.

But as both you and I are aware, the likelihood that you will receive the substantial reward is extremely remote.


Either you embrace this change or risk falling behind as the world increasingly transitions from analogue to digital operations.

As a result, the NLA created a USSD shortcode so that people could play the lottery while lounging at home.
