By Dipo Olowookere

The lottery industry in Nigeria is about to witness a transformation following the introduction of a new gaming platform into the market space.

The new company platform known as TYLgames is turning the focus away from gaming by placing it the hands of the gamers so as to positively touch their lives with each game they play.

TYL brings financial relief to the masses by providing the avenue to win instant cash to cover day-to-day living costs. With just N100, a player can win and cash out a minimum of N1,000 instantly, several times a day. The best part of it is that a player can do this privately and confidentially, 24 hours of the day.

The platform is an Instant Play, Instant Win, Instant Cashout game played on SMS, USSD, and Mobile Web platforms with the shortcode 33088.

There are currently two games available to choose from, an instant numbers game tagged SHOKI and SHAFFLE which is a daily raffle game.

With N100 game cost, a player can win up to N100,000 instantly and up to N1,000,000 in 24 hours by dialling or texting to 33088 or *33088# for USSD respectively or on its online platform.

In order to deliver a dynamic and superior gaming experience, different from other available gaming or betting platforms in a transparent manner to the masses, the promoter of TYLgames, Humber Lottery, has collaborated with telecommunication giants like 9mobile and MTN to touch as many lives, reinforce the brand’s authenticity, and to deliver its promises.

According to the CEO of Humber Lottery, Mr Andrew Humber-Osofisan, “TYLgames is committed to ensuring that people play responsibly and that they are rewarded accordingly.”

He also stated that “TYLgames is much more than a gaming platform. It’s a way to distribute wealth, mitigate individuals’ daily cash-flow issues, and address some of the societal issues plaguing the masses.

“We do not claim to make people overnight millionaires, but we guarantee every player a chance to be fairly rewarded daily. TYLgames is that window of opportunity which they can seize to get the reward they deserve.”

Speaking on why TYLgames is launching at a time the world is battling with COVID-19, he said, “The move to launch TYLgames at this time is strategic…” he said, adding that “…as fear, hopelessness, and depression from the pandemic overwhelms, I feel for the people and believe that TYLgames is a spark to rekindle hope for people to get back up and win again!”

“We call 33088 the winning code because, with it, you can positively change a life. 33088 is like medicine you take to relieve financial/money issues. As paracetamol can relieve headache, body pain or fever so is dialling 33088 can relieve hunger, brokenness, poverty, and all cash-flow symptoms. Just dial the code 33088 for relief,” he said further.

Lauding the company, the Acting Director of Marketing 9mobile Mr Olayiwola Onafowokan said, “TYLgames will address a problem plaguing the Nigerian gaming industry.”
