Qatar 2022: iLot excites, rewards consumers with promo
As the ongoing world cup tournament taking place in Qatar gets to the business end with just eight countries in the running to win the grand prize, sports betting giant, iLot Bet Nigeria has rewarded users of their platform with mouth watering gifts.
Giving consumers a chance to not only enjoy watching their favourite players and teams at the tournament, the platform also gave users something to cheer for as many won big at the recent iLot predict and win a car promo.
Making sports betting safer for everyone, the platform, which prides itself on its transparency and fairness to users recently presented the star prize of a brand new Toyota car to the winner of the promo, Ibrahim Umar. At a well-attended event held in Ikeja, six fans went home with the latest iPhones, while others won other gift items right there at the venue.
Speaking at the event, iLot’s managing director, Uma Ntima said they are here to stay and want users to stick with them and help them grow. Promising that this was just a tip of the iceberg, he said next year’s winners would win all-expense paid trips amongst other star prizes.
Head of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, Lagos office (FCCPC), Suzy Onwuka, said they were present to ensure transparency, fairness and that consumers aren’t misled with fake promos.
Deputy Director/Zonal coordinator, National Lottery Regulatory Commission, Lagos Zonal Office, (NLRC), Nkiru Onuzulu added that it is paramount that lottery in Nigeria is regulated and a lot has been done to bring sanity. She said there used to be negative perceptions of lottery in the past but now, it has been well defined as it is now being done the right way. “We know Nigerians love sports and with the right things and people like iLot in place, people can enjoy it even more,” she said.
Ibrahim, who won the car, expressed gratitude to the organisers, saying he feels very lucky. “I didn’t even believe it at first till I met them, I thought it was a scam. People around me had to convince me to come because I didn’t believe, until I came here and saw it live. I feel honored and happy.”
