Kenya.- Tenlot Group, the global national lottery and gaming operator, in cooperation with its local affiliate, Kenya Charity Sweepstake (KCS), the country’s national lottery and gaming enterprise, announced the launch of a new Olympic-themed Lotto scratch card series. Proceeds will help Kenya’s National Olympic Committee (NOCK) in its efforts to support the nation’s sportswomen and -men which have been affected by the delayed Tokyo 2020 Olympiad. In addition, nationwide charitable organizations will receive funding to support their programmes to alleviate economic challenges facing segments of the population.
The Summer-Games-oriented scratch-card game will offer tens of thousands of cash prizes, including a grand prize of 2 million KES (about 14,240 GBP). The new scratch cards are available nationwide, at all KCS kiosks and partners’ stores.
Yossi Abadi, Tenlot Group CEO, said, “Tenlot consistently returns proceeds from its profits to the communities in which it operates. Particularly during this pandemic, we feel humbled to work with KCS, our Kenyan affiliate, to play a role in helping those in need, especially during this pandemic.
“Our ongoing support of Kenya’s National Olympic Committee has compelled us to help finance the training of Kenya’s athletes, who were affected by the delayed Olympic Summer Games. This will help to keep them in medal-winning form, and to send Kenya’s largest delegation to the games in 2021,” concluded Yossi Abadi.
Peter Njoroge, KCS General Manager said, “The challenges facing our nation during this pandemic provide us the opportunity to engage our partners, vendors and patrons to work together to help our Kenyan sisters and brothers. It is uplifting to launch this new scratch card game, which helps people today, while focusing on the spirit of sportsmanship and good health in the coming year.”
