Games from supplier Helio Gaming are to be available in Nigeria for the first time thanks to a deal with Hammer Lottery.
Hammer Lottery will add Helio’s suite of tailored jackpot games, offering players further chances to win big from small stakes.
Malta-based Helio Gaming offers a number of customisable lottery games including daily, weekly, and event-based draws, which can be branded by individual operators to appeal to a large number of customer demographics.
An operator-branded 6 of 25 game, costing 100 Naira a ticket and drawn twice a week, will be launched in September, with further games boasting localised features to follow.
Richard Mifsud, CEO at Helio Gaming, said: “I’m delighted to announce our co-operation with Hammer Lottery and I am very confident their customers will enjoy playing our games.
“We have ambitious plans in Africa, which has a number of markets which are tailor-made for our new breed of lottery products, and it is great that Hammer lottery are leading the charge in Nigeria.”
Olumuyiwa Awosile, managing director at Hammer Lottery, said: “We are very pleased to have reached an agreement with Richard and the team at Helio and are excited about the opportunities the deal presents.”
The new agreement comes a few weeks after Helio struck their first deal on the continent with popular Kenyan operator Lotto Joto.
