Mauritius will be starting its first Lotto Lottery Game in the coming weeks. The Mauritius Gambling Regulatory Authority today approved the license for the National Lottery to organize these events on a weekly basis.
The game will be a sort of weekly lottery where each week a winner will win 5 million bucks! Players will be able to choose 6 numbers out of 40 each week and each set will cost Rs20 to play. For example you will have to choose 6 numbers among 1 to 40 and if all your six number wins, you WIN!
About 580 machine slots will be installed at the different retailers of the National Lottery as from tomorrow to prepare for the launch. Do note that the lotto game differs from the usual monthly lottery Vert we know here. This game will enable people to choose their numbers but also the weekly jackpot will increase in case there is no winner on a specific week.
For example if one week one no one win. The 5 millions rupees will increase for the next week. There will also be complimentary winners as well where even if someone placed only 4 right numbers or 3 right numbers he can win some cash.
Jean-Pierre Desbiens from the National Lottery explained that each person will have about 1 chance on 30 to win. By winning here, I mean even the small jackpots. Well now come another debate is whether we are making our population a gambler powered one. But then in every countries we do have these chance games and in my opinion its nothing wrong.
As long as the person does not waste all his salary on these bets, it is ok. I’ll like to know of your opinion however.
