Middle East Lottery Information

by World Casino Directory


We'll start with Egypts lottery since after all lotteries are dated back to the days of the Pharohs. But since I have but a short article to write, I'm going to start in the 1940's when the Greek community started it. By the 1960's there were 3 offices overseeing issuing of lottery tickets: Solidarity Office, Al-Orwa Al- Wothqa, and the Egyptian Lottery Union owned by Keriako Mikalous.

The Keriako was accused of tampering with the draws and making false claims on unclaimed prize money and unsold loto tickets. The Egyptian government made Cairo Bank the responsible authority for dispersing and watching the lottery. In 1976 The Lottery Coalition formed. At it's peak it had 2000+ lotto vendors and distribution places across the nation. Today it only has around 200. The popularity dropped off in the seventies when it was debated that it was gambling and against Islamic law.

The Lebonese have had a national lottery in place since 2002 - you can find the results and information here: La Libanaise Des Jeux. La Libanaise Des Jeux are the organizers of the Lenonese Lottery games: Yanasib, Instand Lottery and Loto. Play online at the exclusive online lottery agent for Lebanese Lotto (Loto Libanais) and Lottery (Yanassib) and other games is PlayLebanon.

Israel also has a lottery - Visit website for more details. Althought Mifal Hapayis, the Israel National Lottery, threatened to close down its operations in early 2007, things seem to be continuing on currently .
