Vietnam Goes for Online Gambling

Published Thursday, May 28, 2009 -

David Aftergood, founder of Pacific Lottery Corporation must be very pleased as this young entrepreneur from Calgary Alberta will finally, after years of trying, see the results of a lot of hard work. Online and mobile lottery technology provider Pacific Lottery Corporation has gained a serious foothold in the Asian online gaming market. It is some success, becoming the first to gain approval from the government of Vietnam to broadcast a television show devoted to the nation's daily lottery draws.

His company has received exclusive approval to broadcast the 30-minute Hanoi Lottery Draw nightly beginning from Monday on State-run television. Pacific's national online lottery technology will be used to present the winning combinations for the various games offered by the State-owned Lottery Corporation.

Pacific Lottery Corporation expects to 'significantly increase' its national marketing efforts in Vietnam's only State-authorised online lottery programme.

David Aftergood was quoted as saying, "We are extremely gratified by the continuing confidence the government has shown in us through its ongoing strong support of the nation's only online lottery programme," adding, "This development marks a major milestone in the ongoing progress of the Vietnamese lottery programme and will also significantly assist in the boosting of our brand nationally in Vietnam and regionally throughout South East Asia." "A new ball draw machine from SmartPlay International Incorporated USA will be used on the show."

Authorized for use by the Vietnamese public, a new lottery game will also be introduced by Pacific Lottery Corporation, a Two Digit/Pair proprietary online lottery game. This game is similar to an illegal one and is created to compete with the bogus version.
