IGE redefines entertainment, excites with global games
With an estimated $2 billion spent yearly on virtual gaming in Nigeria due to its growing popularity, millions of Nigerians seeking to explore the gaming world to diversify their income streams are set to enjoy even more alternatives.
Nigerians can now play global games and stand a chance to win millions of dollars in cash, thanks to International Gaming and Entertainment Limited, which has brought the games to Nigeria.
At the launch of MegaMillions Naija in Lagos, the promoters said the platform would provide access to the most popular games from around the world, ushering in an incredible opportunity for millions of Nigerians.
According to the organisers, players will be able to participate in several global games, including the popular US Powerball, Australia Powerball, US MegaMillions, SuperEnalotto, Euromillions, EuroJackpot, Spanish La Primitiva and so on.
MegaMillions Naija operates a unique model, which allows Nigerians above 18, to enter for a chance to win any of the leading global lotteries, by purchasing a ticket in a major overseas lottery, claiming any prize won from said ticket and paying the winner the Naira equivalent.
Managing Director, IGE Limited, promoters of MegaMillions, Okwy Okeke said: “We are being modest. This should be ‘Megabillions’ Nigeria” because on our platform, at stake is over N200 billion to be won. Our target is to provide life-changing opportunities for millions of Nigerians, We believe that through this we have taken a pragmatic approach to address some of our socio-economic challenges, especially the ability to reduce poverty and usher millions of Nigerians to financial freedom as people can play and win millions with as low as N100.” The largest MegaMillions jackpot, $1.537 billion, was won on October 23, 2018.
The Chief Operations Officer, MegaMillions Naija, Victor Nwobia said many Nigerians were looking for genuine ways to improve their financial wellbeing. The games are coming from trusted brands, and promoted by a company that is duly licenced by the Nigeria Lottery Regulatory Commission.
MegaMillions Naija leverages cutting-edge technology, with users’ connection to the website secured by 256-bit encryption technology ensuring that users’ personal information is protected during transmission.
