Malawi: lottery on mobile phones

“Earlier this year, Pay265.net launched their e-Wallet concept that would allow Malawians make payments via SMS and email when implemented. Now, the African Lotteries Company Limited (AFLOT) is looking for a company to operate on its behalf, an SMS/mobile phone lottery service that can enable the general public to play Lotto 5 via the cell phone for a period of 4 years in Malawi,” reports Soyapi Mumba.

    AFLOT doesnt want to pay winners. there was someone by the name of Paul Chikatenta who claimed to have won the jackpot, but the company filed a suite against him as well as the retailer who sold him the ticket claiming them to be frauds.
