Give yourself a chance! PayDay Lotteries – Nigeria’s number 1 lottery service


Our responsible play policy limits each mobile phone to a maximum of 35 entries to any combinations of games in any week.

Playing our PayDay Lotteries games should be fun and exciting but please don't risk beyond your means. We have a commitment to promote responsible attitudes to gaming.

Gaming is an exciting 18+ pastime and at PayDay Lotteries we would like our customers to enjoy playing our games. We are committed to offering a fair, secure, efficient and socially responsible service.


Most people keep within their means when playing lotteries and keep control over their gaming. If you feel that playing lottery is controlling you then you should use our self exclusion option. See lottery ban below.

If you are concerned that lottery is dominating your or someone else's life, ask the following questions and they may help you decide.

  • Do you stay away from work, college or school to play lotteries?
  • Do you play lotteries to escape from a boring or unhappy life?
  • When you play lotteries and you run out of money, do you feel lost and in despair and feel the need to play again as soon as possible?
  • Do you play lotteries until your last penny is gone, even money you need for essentials?
  • Have you ever lied to cover up the amount of money or time that you have spent playing lotteries?
  • Have others ever criticised your lottery activities?
  • Have you lied, stolen or borrowed just to get money to play lotteries or to pay lotteries debts?
  • Are you reluctant to spend money on anything else?
  • Have you lost interest in your family and friends?
  • Do you feel the need to win back any losses as soon as possible?
  • Do you feel depressed or even suicidal because of your lottery activities?


We take our responsibilities very seriously when it comes to under age gaming.

If you are under the age of 18 and are found to be using our gaming services you will be reported to the police and any winnings will be forfeited.


If you would like to ban your mobile phone from accessing our games, simply text "ban" and you will automatically ban your mobile phone from entering any of our games for 26 weeks. You can also text "ban" followed by a number of weeks greater than 26 (up to 999) for example "ban 52" and this will ban your phone from entering any of our games for 52 weeks.

If a text is received with a ban number less that 26, we will default to a 26 week ban.
