INTRODUCTION

The most popular lottery game in West Africa is the 5/90 fixed odds lotto game because the winning amount is predetermined before a stake is placed. The winning amount depends on the ability of the customer to wager large sums or the operator to put a limit on highest wager allowed. The player has the freedom to choose a number(s) (DIRECT / NAP Maximum 5) or a combination (PERM short for Permutation) of number anywhere from 1 to 90 (maximum 24). Five numbers are randomly drawn. These five numbers are referred to as the “winning numbers”.
