Sierra Leone State Lottery Clocks 50

Sierra Leone State Lottery Company (SLSLC), will today Monday 10th December 2012, commemorate its 50th anniversary with outstanding service performances to the people of Sierra Leone. The company will use the event to thank President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma and the people of Sierra Leone for being very supportive to them.

 

The company will also thank all those who have contributed in diverse ways towards its development.

Since its establishment ten years ago, the company has benefited several Sierra Leoneans and has also contributed immensely towards the countrys development through its corporate social responsibilities.

 

SLSLC will continue to maintain transparency, honesty and accountability in its daily operations. In the last ten years, the company has increased on its betting games from the popular Mini-5 game to the newly introduced Football Pools, PIK-3 and Big One games, which are all internationally recognized.

 

To the SLSLC, this Golden Jubilee is a splendid opportunity that will reflect on its positive accomplishments and will also make it very mindful of going ahead to achieving a better prosperity.       

 

The company in its corporate social responsibility has poured millions of leones on education, health, sports and community development projects as well as other developments in Sierra Leone.

 

Besides providing teaching and learning materials to schools across the country, SLSLC has also awarded scholarships to students and supplied equipment to hospitals and colleges.

 

However there are so many challenges facing the company. The company earning has reduced based on the current economic situation in the world.

 

To ease these challenges, it will be prudent on the government to set up a lottery and betting commission for a very perfect competition in the industry. The establishment of a commission will encourage fair play among lottery companies.
