• 1967

    As the activities of the National Lotteries Board expanded, the need arose to open branch offices throughout the country.

    Accordingly, the first branch office was opened in 1967 in Ratnapura.

    Subsequently branch offices were established in almost all districts including Jaffna, Matara, Trincomalee, Hambantota and Kandy.

    Lottery tickets were delivered by train from the head office to the branch offices.

    Sales agents come to the branch office and collect lottery tickets.

    In some cases, the branch manager in charge of the branch office and the assistant branch manager took the lottery tickets to the dealers in the respective areas.
