The Implications of the Ithuba Win
“In a landmark judgment for the gaming sector, Ithuba, as the authorized National Lottery Operator, has won its longstanding case against bookmaker Lottostar,” announced Ithuba. “Ithuba and the National Lotteries Commission in 2016, brought an application for a declaratory order and interdict against Lottostar. The judgment declares that the bookmaker’s practice of taking bets on the outcome of any lottery (including the South African National Lottery) is illegal.”
The High Court ordered Lottostar to cease offering bets on the outcome of any lottery, be it the South African or other international lotteries from around the globe. Lottostar also has to pay all of Ithuba’s legal costs.
The High Court’s ruling reiterated Ithuba Holding’s exclusive right to operate the National Lottery in South Africa.
