THE SABC’s three television channels and 13 radio stations will cross over for the National Lottery live TV draw, results and game shows in an effort to inform and involve as many South Africans as possible, operator Gidani has announced.

Following the finalisation of a multi-platform deal with the national broadcaster, Dr Bongani Khumalo, chief executive of Gidani, said the draw will move from to the SABC channels.

He said with a single free to air TV channel,’s reach is limited when compared with the national broadcaster’s.

“Gidani’s commitment is to inform and involve as many eligible players as possible about the activities of the National Lottery. This can optimally be done by using a combination of television channels and radio stations.”
