National Lotteries Board (NLB)


The National Lotteries Board (NLB) is established in terms of the Lotteries Act, 1997 (Act No. 57 of 1997), as amended, to regulate the national lottery and other lotteries, including society lotteries to raise funds and promotional competitions. The NLB advises the Minister of Trade and Industry on policy matters relating to the national lottery and other lotteries. The NLB does not adjudicate applications for funding or make allocations to organisations. Adjudication for applications for funding and allocations to organisation is done through committees known as Distributing Agencies that are appointed by the Minister of Trade and Industry in conjunction with the Minister of Sports and Arts and Culture. The NLB provides administrative support to the Distributing Agencies.
