Uganda National Lottery Review

Apart from its sceneries and wildlife (especially mountain gorillas), Uganda is also famous for its lottery – the Uganda National Lottery. Known as the ‘Pearl of Africa,’ the first lottery was supposed to launch in July 2003 after announcing its intentions of operating lotteries in April of the same year. But during that time, the state of lotteries was pretty bad; people thought lotteries were a way to scam people, to run them dry, and thus up until the official launch in November of 2004, the Uganda Lottery Company placed great efforts to restore public confidence.

As soon as it was launched in November 2004, instant scratch games were immediately available to willing and avid lottery players. The best part is that in just three months after its launch, the lottery paid out over 70 million Ugandan shillings (around $24,200 today) to its winners. A few months later, that number rose to over 100 million Ugandan shillings! Then in 2013, the Uganda National Lottery was launched through its operator Mena Sports Consulting FZCO.
