Leading Australian IT and e-commerce company Manaccom Corporation Limited (ASX:MNL) is pleased to announce that this week’s Australian record $90 million OZ Lotto jackpot has generated significant activity for the online lottery division and its flagship website www.ozlotteries.com.
“The $90 million OZ Lotto jackpot generated immense public interest Australia-wide as well as at our Ozlotteries.com website”, said Mr Mike Veverka, CEO of Manaccom Corporation Limited.
Ozlotteries.com is the exclusive online selling agent for NSW Lotteries Corporation until 2013. Customers that visit the official www.nswlotteries.com.au website are directed to buy online at Ozlotteries.com.
