Lottery is a highly patronized industry in Ghana. All around cities and towns lottery kiosks can be found. A few decades ago weekly lottery results used to be shown on national television. Its popularity still holds in recent times. Sports betting, however has taken over traditional lotteries.

The global market size has grown exponentially from USD 25billion in 2009 to USD 42billion in 2015. It is estimated to reach USD 56billion in 2018, according to www.statista.com.

Land-based retail betting continues to be the most common form of betting medium used by consumers with alternative online betting platforms presently representing just over 30% of the total global position, a situation which is forecast to remain relatively stable to 2016. However from a global perspective, experts state that “while land-based lottery and casinos still dominate the gambling scene, online real-money gambling and betting are growing rapidly.

Gross gambling revenues in Africa posted their largest annual increase over the past five years, with bingo gross gambling revenues rising by 86%, sports betting by 19.3% and casino gambling by 10.5%.
