A new National Lotteries Board survey shows that fewer South Africans are playing lottery games.
A national poll of two-and-a-half-thousand respondents found that there had been a substantial decline between 2003 and 2010, from 70-percent of the adult population, down to 40-percent.
In the survey, two-thirds of lottery players said they should have a say in who gets funding from lottery money, while close to 90-percent wanted charities to be beneficiaries.
