NLB faced with lottery shortage Featured

The National Lotteries Board (NLB) is experiencing a shortage of lottery tickets, reports say.

The NLB could not supply to the demand by its agents from the outstations who called over at its head office at Kollupitiya yesterday (06).

Owing to this shortage, the agents have been told to visit the NLB head office in Kollupitiya every two days, to get their tickets.

This situation has occured as the company tasked with the ticket printing is unable to print in bulk. The tender for the company was given by the NLB chairperson.

Reports add that tickets printed by this company have many printing mistakes as well.
